Tribute, the upscale eatery set to open inside the Houstonian Hotel, will make its splashy debut in October.
The hotel’s new restaurant, bar, and lounge space are part of a $3 million renovation for the hotel, occupying more than 8,000 square feet of space, according to a press release. Design firm Ginsler will create the restaurant’s luxe vibe, complete with a show-stopping display of wood and glass wine lockers at the entrance of the restaurant. Expect large windows, natural wood finishes, and “branch-like” lighting throughout the space. A new cocktail bar called The Bar will sit adjacent to the restaurant, and a lounge with “statement lighting” and onyx finishes will connect the two.
As far as the food is concerned, look forward to a thoroughly Gulf Coast menu, with plenty of Louisiana and Texas influence. Chef Neal Cox, who’s spent time in the kitchens of Pappas Brothers Steakhouse, Americas, and Trevisio, will serve steaks and braised cabrito, along with seafood dishes like redfish served on the half-shell and wood-grilled Gulf oysters.
Tribute will open on October 26.
