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.

The decor is super cool! Like no other place I have seen...you gotta see it!
One of the best paellas in town!
The decor reminds me of a Dali painting or Tim Burton film. Ask about the coffee beans. Delicious cuisine. Perfect for biz & romantic dinners. Top the evening off w/ table side flamed tres leches!
