This link in a Houston-owned chain is a beautiful throwback to another era, with dark-wood paneling, semicircular red booths, white tablecloths, and a pink glow that makes everybody look great. Oceanaire distinguishes itself primarily with first-rate ingredients; you see it at its best by ordering simply, picking from the list of fresh fish that heads the menu—perhaps Carolina swordfish or local rockfish. The portions are often big enough to feed a family of four. This
place is a good time, and even better if you go with a group.
