Comfort fare relaxes the body and warms the soul, much like wrapping your shoulders in a baby blanket that’s also a trained massage therapist. Regress into repose with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of American comfort fare at Clementine’s Restaurant.
A family-owned establishment for 25 years, Clementine’s Restaurant quells growling stomachs with a menu of American comfort eats served during breakfast, lunch, and dinner hours. On Saturdays and Sundays, breakfast-goers can sink bicuspids into a country-style omelet speckled with ham, cheese, and potato ($7.99) or Clem’s taquitos showcasing flour tortillas delicately embracing eggs and sausage ($7.99). Sautéed onions and swiss cheese ooze from a lunchtime patty melt bookended by rye bread ($8.25), and a dinner serving of the tenderloin fillets excites the tongue and high-fives the brain’s pleasure centers with savory bites soaked in jalapeño-infused hotel butter ($14.95 for a 6 oz.; $18.95 for an 8 oz.). Clementine’s rounds out its lengthy menu with delicious heaps of burgers, seafood, and pasta, all ideal for solo dining or romantically sharing while inexplicably transformed into a Disney cartoon.
Clementine’s cozy dining room replicates the edifice of a cottage home with delicate accents of rustic foliage highlighted by the soft glow of antique street lamps. Joyous notes from live entertainment float through the restaurant on Wednesday through Saturday nights, the only time of the week when musicians are allowed to walk the earth in their non-pumpkin form.
Though Clementines Restaurant began as a humble burger-and-malt shop, it has blossomed in the last 35 years into a fine-dining establishment. Voted best restaurant and best dessert at the NW Houston Chamber of Commerce's Epicurean Night 2012, Clementines Restaurant has proven its reputation. Chefs pack lunches of snapper Alexander topped with shrimp and crawfish in a white-wine cream sauce. For dinner they prepare seafood, steak, and veal specialties, as well as pollo dishes. Just as operas conclude with the main character eating cake, meals conclude with diners eating croissant bread pudding with english cream and old-fashioned shakes and malts. Much of this culinary goodness makes its way to Clementines’ catering and banquet menu; the private banquet room seats up to 77 for special events such as weddings, rehersal dinners, birthdays, business functions, and baby and bridal showers–menus can be customized for events. Additionally, the sound of live entertainment can be heard Tuesday through Saturday nights.
