“Stepping out with my baby……tonight might be the night” as Tony Bennett, the singer would sing. As you go to “Arcodoro’s Restaurant” in the heart of the Galleria off Westheimer and Post Oak, you can valet park while the staff is ready to greet with a smile and your ready to step into the eloquent place to dine, otherwise parking is available in other areas of the parking lot. Its music is modern pop to jazzy listening and the tables are lighted with floral for a romantic setting because its ambience is cozy, romantic, and comfortable while their house music plays and your ready for a great evening. The place is made of beautiful stone and marble with decorative paintings and floral throughout the restaurant. They have different areas of eating; one is in the front, back, bar side, and patio. Their sofas are of soft cushion with wooden handles, leather stools at the bar, and other tables are dressed with white linen throughout the restaurant. The patio has lighted trees to make the place sparkle in the evening like as if you’re in Sicily. The private room has a great wine selection with a beautiful painting of horses and the table is large enough to sit up to 10 persons. This night would be a night out to dress up or dress casual. It’s a nice place for a gathering with a social group, family or date to wine and dine. Also a nice place for private parties. The manager and the staff are very courteous and professional.
Sardinian dishes are from the Mediterranean in which Arcodoro’s cook with some Sardinian ingredients in their dishes. Sardinia is an island in the Mediterranean where there’s sunshine 135 days of the year. Their industry is sea fishing; seafood is their specialty like tune and salmon. They also cook boars and use herbs such as oregano, garlic and tomatoes. Arcodoro’s great dishes contain salmon, juicy 10 – 16 oz. NY steaks and their Focaccia Uova e Caprino, an egg specialty that has fresh tomatoes, goat cheese, and parmesan on Focaccia bread, Mediterranean salads, etc. The Sardinian cheese and salmon are throughout their menu. A wood burning oven is used for most of their cooking especially for Arcodoro’s award winning aged rib-eye steak that sizzles after being marinated and is juicy and thick. They also cook Pollo al Forno a seasoned half chicken in the wood burning over, plus other dishes. These dishes and all others are ones you should try because of its freshness and deliciousness. The wines are sweet to dry wines for their savory taste with a variety of selections. The Electric Lemon Blue Aqua Martini is great and their Antinori White Wine is smooth and lightly sweet. Beer and other liquors are available.
