Quattro at the Four Seasons Hotel-Houston

     Over the weekend, my husband and I went to Quattro at the Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Houston. They give you the option of dining in the wine bar with several small plate choices to share priced at $9 and under and a full restaurant menu as well. They have an extensive wine list with over 50 wines by the glass (all available in 3 or 6 ounce pours) and numerous additional bottle choices.


     We opted to sit in the main dining room and started our evening with a glass of Champagne and a shared lobster pasta dish which we followed with the Mozzarella Di Bufala antipasti that we used as a spread on the bread.
     We ordered a bottle of 2007 Provenance Cabernet from Rutherford to have after the Champagne with our entrees. The wine was fantastic; classic Napa Cabernet and reasonably priced. Executive Chef, Maurizio Ferrarese stopped by our table to discuss the menu options. I chose the filet and my husband chose the Osso Bucco. We finished with a glass of Tawny Port and Creme Brulee.
     Our server's name was Savdo (he is from Bosnia). We found him to be well-informed, charming and he provided us with excellent service. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
     We learned that in addition to their bar menu and $4 Happy Hour specials, you can request some special chef-created options, all of which we are looking forward to trying in the enoteca the next time we venture downtown.
