Houston patrons can experience some fine Italian cuisine at new downtown restaurant Potente, located on the ground floor of a luxury apartment building just steps from Minute Maid Park.
Potente boasts a menu of high quality seafood, steaks and pasta; an exhausting wine list and décor that would make anyone stand in awe. Their menus even light up … how fancy is that?
Astros owner Jim Crane owns Potente as well as his other, more casual Italian restaurant Osso & Kristalla, which is located next door to Potente. The restaurants are named after his three children.
The Houston Food Blogger Collective was invited to tour both restaurants Feb. 22 and sample some delicious food offerings at Osso & Kristalla prior to the restaurant’s official opening. And before we get to the yummy food pics, you must be informed that executive chef Michael Parker (personal chef to Crane), Chef du cuisine Micah Rideout and executive pastry chef David Berg are behind the magic. Now … enjoy!
Both restaurants are now open to the public, so be sure to stop in and get full. Potente opens at 5pm every day for dinner and Osso & Kristalla serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Tell them 2 Girls Who Travel sent you!
