MONTROSE — Bistecca Italian Steakhouse at 224 Westheimer has opened. If you've driven by the space you've likely done a double-take to it's impressive modern but quaint exterior which was built out rather quickly but quietly and with no signage until recently. So it remained rather under the radar as construction came to completion in the old Plant House location, until said yellow sign went up only a few weeks ago. What's come to fruition is the 100-seat venue which is intimate but has a bold look and really stands out on the Westehimer strip also home to Uchi, Underbelly and other top Houston destinations.
As the name implies, Bistecca will center it's menu squarely around grilled meats in a Tuscan / Northern Italian fashion and will be all about the cuts of meat, the marinades and the grill. Expect grilled steaks, seafood and fowl and of course pastas. The signature dish will be a Bistecca Fiorentina, created for sharing and served in 24, 36 and 60-ounce sizes, so come hungry and bring friends.
Bistecca Italian Steakhouse is now open for dinner.
