Named after a type of chili also known as Piri Piri, this South African fusion restaurant (with two locations) produces plates full of flavor. The space shimmers in red and gold hues, giving it a romantic glow. Chef Paul Friedman turns out dishes like ribeye steak with Madagascar peppercorn sauce or a signature Capetown seafood skillet, while the wine list has one of the largest collections of South African wines in Texas.
