Black Labrador Pub
Houston, TX 77006
The Black Lab is an English pub perfect for enjoying a pint of ale, a game of darts and a bite to eat. The kitchen isn't strictly English--burgers and Tex-Mex dishes turn up among the shepherd's pie, fish and chips, and bangers and mash. As the evening winds down, try the Scotch apple pie and a Samuel Smith Taddy porter.
On the patio, a human-size chessboard is designed into the paving and even occasionally used. Or, look like a regular, and buy your own mug to keep at the bar. And don't forget your parking ticket if you park in the garage, the Black Lab will validate your ticket.
