Relax with Music on the Patio at Italian Maid Cafe

(Fulshear, TX – Sept. 6, 2018) —Guests can relax with the family and a glass of wine while being serenaded by local talent when Music on the Patio returns to Italian Maid Café at 6450 Cross Creek Bend Lane in Cross Creek Ranch every Friday evening this October.

The café will stay open until 9 p.m. on Fridays so diners can decompress after a long week while enjoying guitar music and the café’s varied menu of Italian and American classics, said owner Lanie Alvarez.

“Families are so busy during the week,” Alvarez said. “They need a place to reconnect without worrying about who will cook or do the dishes. What better way to do that than enjoying great food from our scratch kitchen, a lakefront view and beautiful music?”

Two musicians will provide accompaniment to a menu that includes appetizers, salads, house made soups, entrees such as pecan-crusted chicken, the restaurant’s signature spaghetti and meatballs, and fresh burgers with fries.  Homemade desserts round out the menu.
