Frenchies Italian Restaurant

1 save

Houston, United States • Recommendation • 

They say to never meet your heroes, but Francesco Camera—the owner of Frenchies—will disagree. Over the last 40 years, astronauts come into the little Italian restaurant bearing gifts from their adventures that now adorn the walls. Frenchies is pretty close to the Johnson Space Center, so you’re bound to meet some spacemen if you come down for lunch.

A quick trip to Mars is totally doable when you visit the #DowntownMars murals on Leeland Street. Three sides of Texas Direct Auto look straight out of space with two walls painted like the rocky red planet of Mars, and the third one a space field with an adorable astro-dog.
