Ambrosia was a must-try for me this year for HRW. To be honest, I had heard great things, but never knew much about the restaurant. Ambrosia is a cozy little restaurant nestled between houses near the museum district, serving tapas style Asian cuisine. Locally sourced ingredients with exotic flavors and spices is their specialty. Other highlights include an impressive happy hour menu available even on the weekend, half off bottles of wine on Thursday, and $5 martinis on Wednesdays!
If you're still looking at taking advantage of some of the HRW menus before the month ends, Ambrosia should definitely be on your list for consideration. The four-course dinner menu is $35 with $5 (=15 meals) going to the Houston Food Bank.
