King Charles

Lucky for us, we can get a taste of Spain's vibrant culture right here at home, thanks to Charles Clark and his mini-empire of Mediterranean-inspired restaurants.

They say in Spain the food's a little bolder, the nightlife a little wilder, and the beaches a little sunnier.

Lucky for us, we can get a taste of that vibrant culture right here at home, thanks to Charles Clark and his mini-empire of Mediterranean-inspired restaurants. Charles first splashed into the restaurant scene with upscale midtown eatery, Ibiza, popular for patrons who like to relax like the islanders.

Diners and critics alike have welcomed the plates-to-share concept at Charles' second innovation, Catalan, situated locally in the Heights, but named for the sunny region of Catalonia. And Charles isn't done yet. He has plans to open a steakhouse in River Oaks, which is sure to be influenced from his travels abroad.

For Spaniards, excess is a way of life when it comes to food, drinks and relaxation. We have a word for that in Houston: Charles.
