Grazie @EatingOurWords for the kind words!
Kind words from Houston Press food editor Katharine Shilcutt today:
For the quintessential dining experience with service (and prices) to match, there’s only one place to go in Houston — and Tony Vallone’s namesake restaurant is it. The decor is elegant yet subdued, and the wine list under wine director Scott Banks is unparalleled, with many sold by the glass. Every day brings a new list of specials influenced by whatever is freshest and in season. The regular menu under chef de cuisine Grant Gordon at this Greenway Plaza mainstay is a food lover’s delight, with dishes like Petrossian Imperial Ossetra caviar as an appetizer or main courses such as handmade ravioli stuffed with soppressata and a 55-day dry-aged Prime New York strip. And you simply haven’t lived until you’ve had one of Tony’s soufflés for dessert, which can be made in any flavor imaginable.
