When in season, the chefs at Justin's Seafood receive fresh crawfish every morning, and they immediately start boiling them up in an array of Cajun spices. Once flavored, the grilled or fried morsels are tossed into everything from fresh salads to po' boys to seafood pizzas. These dishes are great while catching a game at the restaurant's 25-foot bar, but the chefs understand that some customers want to have a proper crawfish boil in their own homes. So, during crawfish season, they also sell and deliver live and pre-boiled crawfish, cleaned and ready for home cooks to add their own spices and written proof they've been to Louisiana.
Since its inception in 1974, Birraporetti's has melded Italian cooking with a traditional Irish-pub atmosphere, serving hand-tossed pizzas baked in their stone oven alongside robust Irish coffee and spirits. CBS Houston highlighted its oven-fired pizzas as some of the best in the city, specifically lauding the house bianco pizza for eschewing traditional ingredients such as tomato sauce and shredded copies of the Mona Lisa. The kitchen remains open until midnight to accommodate late-night cravings, yet the chefs still rise in time to serve Sunday jazz brunches replete with made-to-order waffles, omelets, and desserts served amid live jazz performances.
A lush, rainforest-themed waiting room greets guests at Boca Tanning Club, hinting at the tranquil skinsperience that awaits them. The Friendswood location boasts Boca standup booths and the Boca Beast bed. Each of these luxury suncouches has three different skin-shade settings in addition to an mp3 player, air conditioning, aromatherapy, shoulder tanners, facial tanners, and spleen tanners. The League City location has, in addition to standup booths, the 10-minute Boca Tanning Club laydown beds, which are designed to beautifully bronzen soul sacks in 10 quick minutes, with the help of built-in high-def music, aromatherapy, and cooling misters. Should you choose the spray-tan option, both locations use Magic Tan VersaSpa Spray Tanning booths for UV-free glow-bestowing procedures. These booths have an open interior design and drying technology that superbly seals in sunless splendor. At the Friendswood location, you can also opt to use your Groupon for five photo rejuvenation sessions using the Mon Amie Collarium system. This new treatment acts as an anti-aging panacea, reducing the appearance of fine lines and improving skin texture and elasticity.
Madres Restaurant's new location matches the charm of the original Friendswood eatery, dishing out the same elegant takes on lime-marinated ceviche, sizzling fajitas, and sauce-slathered enchiladas. After finishing off the last bacon-wrapped shrimp brochette, patrons can request that a chef wrap bacon around other Madres offerings, such as buffalo wings or glasses of red wine.
