Behold 1751 Sea & Bar’s elegant caviar presentation.
| Jenn Duncan

Few things elevate an evening of dining out like an impressive caviar presentation, and huddling over a thoughtfully-prepared spread is a fine way to kick off a meal with friends. The roe of wild sturgeon produces a salty bite, enhanced only with a boozy beverage and proper accouterments, like chunky, chopped egg and tart capers — making each bite is better than the last.

While many places offer a traditional spread, some are leveling up the experience with innovative combinations, like caviar-topped tater tots and loaded caviar tacos. In a city like Houston with a healthy balance of time-honored restaurants and exciting newcomers, it has never been a better time to experience imaginative takes on the costly snack.

For when there is cause for celebration, or simply a caviar craving of epic proportions, consider these 13 destinations.

Potente

In lieu of a leafy green salad, spring for the ultra-decadent chef’s caviar salad at Potente. Built with 12 grams of Sasanian Royal Ossetra caviar, creme fraiche, and chunky egg salad and served with brioche, it serves as a solid precursor to the fabulous meal that will no doubt follow.

Brasserie 19 puts a fun spin on the pricey indulgence, pairing its caviar with chips and creme fraiche, ensuring dip after delicious dip. Don’t care to stray from tradition? The River Oaks hot spot also offers Black Kaluga and Platinum Osetra varieties in 1 or 4 oz, served traditionally with blinis, chopped egg, capers, crème frâiche, chive, and shallot.

Turner's

With its well-appointed dining room and a live pianist performing nightly, Benjamin Berg’s Turner’s serves as a dreamy destination to indulge in caviar, and the presentation is first-class from start to finish. Choose from 1 oz jars of Petrossian Classic Daurenki ($95), Royal Ossetra ($150), Royal Sevruga ($195), or spring for Berg’s own custom royal white sturgeon caviar ($95), which he harvested himself. Traditional accouterments include house-made blinis, onion, egg yolks, creme fraiche, and capers, plus a complimentary table-side pour of vodka in an ice sculpture that sweetens the deal.

Liberty Kitchen & Oysterette

While the spotlight is often on oysters and Gulf Coast gems at Liberty Kitchen, the caviar service is pretty solid, too. The restaurant features Hackleback domestic ($55) and Osetra imported ($105) varieties with complements like creme fraiche, blinis, chopped egg yolk and egg white, capers, and melba toast.

Fast food is made fancy at Riel, where in addition to a seriously solid caviar service, chef Ryan Lachaine puts a playful twist on house-made tater tots by topping them with caviar. The buttery bite is hard to resist, and it’s impossible to have just one, so order wisely.

The lounge at MARCH is where the restaurant’s 6- and 9-course tasting experiences begin and where guests can kick off their meal with cocktails and caviar service. This season’s presentation is inspired by the flavors of Occitania, featuring gougeres with gruyere, caramelized onion soubise, egg yolk sous vide with lemon and espelette peppers served with lavender creme fraiche and crispy herbed chickpeas. Insider tip: On Fridays and Saturdays, the lounge is open from 9 p.m. to midnight, during which time guests have the opportunity to wind down with caviar and post-dinner cocktails.

With plenty on its menu for big spenders to choose from, Doris Metropolitan does not disappoint when it comes to its caviar service. Regiis Ova Royal Caviar is $150/oz and is playfully referred to as “the other black gold” from Royal White Sturgeons.

Nobu Houston

In a Tex-Mex town like Houston, there are few things that will surprise seasoned taco eaters but Nobu manages to do the job with its nori caviar Nobu tacos. The eye-catching tacos are built in a crispy, squid ink nori taco shell, generously stuffed with guacamole, and finished off with caviar.

Kata Robata

There are no shortage of melt-in-your-mouth moments at Kata Robata, but the toro, uni, and caviar rank at the top of the list. A layer of velvety uni (or sea urchin) serves as a cradle for the caviar topping, and paired with a buttery toro, the bite leaves a lasting impression on the palate.
