Texas’ first Mastro’s Steakhouse opened pretty unexpectedly last month, with no announcements made to the public until the evening before it opened.
But that hasn’t stopped the crowds from coming. Since the swanky new steakhouse swung open the doors, the restaurant from Houston Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta has been booked solid. In its first few weeks, Houstonians have flocked to the restaurant to sample its USDA Prime steaks and other indulgent dishes, including the two-foot-tall seafood tower, lobster mashed potatoes and signature warm butter cake.
Designed by Abel Design Group, with interiors by Landry’s Development, the Houston outpost of Mastro’s features plenty of customizations that were chosen specifically for Space City. Note the custom lighting fixtures, including a blown glass chandelier at the entry and cascading taupe-colored chandeliers in the main dining room; Nero Marquina black marble bar finishes; Ann Sacks Beau Monde mosaic accents at the entryway, in the restrooms and on the patio, along with a waterfall and reflecting pool.
Lush and luxe, the main dining room boasts Hollywood style-booths set against a mirrored backdrop. The spaces flow into one another without any walls. To one side, a community table separates the main area from the Piano Bar. On the other side of the room, the wall directly opposite the booths is occupied by Mastro’s first dedicated Whiskey Bar. There are also two private dining areas and a patio.
Before you visit Mastro’s, take a virtual walk around this chic new spot for a steak. Mastro’s is now open for dinner from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and Sunday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. The piano lounge is open daily from 5 p.m. to close.
