Description

The legacy of Mama Ninfa Laurenzo lives on throughout Houston, both at the original Ninfa’s on Navigation and at the El Tiempo chain of restaurants, now run by her grandson, Domenic Laurenzo. All of the El Tiempos—especially the Vintage Park and Second Ward locations—boast big, beautiful dining rooms that make every meal seem that much more special. The restaurant has perfected its fajita recipe over the last 55 years, but the sizzling comals can come with a lot more than just beef: try the jalapeño sausage, mesquite-grilled quail, bacon-wrapped shrimp, or even a whole lobster tail as add-ons.
