Houston Press' Description

This is the River Oaks incarnation of Américas, the restaurant responsible - along with its owners, the Cordúa family - for first introducing Houston to South American cuisine. Like at its sister restaurant, Churrascos, the menu has barely changed since Américas' inception on Post Oak Boulevard. The only real difference at this new River Oaks buildout is the rather insane interior, a mishmash of Aeon Flux and The Lion King as staged on Broadway, as envisioned by Tim Burton's Beetlejuice. Stick with classics like the churrasco steak or the smoky crab claws and try not to stare.
