We ate at Provisions (which is the casual side of "pass and provisions") this restaurant recently got voted #6 in best new restaurants in the USA by Bon appetite magazine.
We were in Houston for the weekend visiting family, so couldn't resist trying it out.
The decor is gorgeous..sort of a trendy rustic feel. The "tablecloths" are giant paper menus...very cool.
And yes...The food was delicious
Oysters- fat plumb and briny
Bone marrow brioche- unusual as the bone marrow had been removed and mixed into the brioche bread. The empty bone was then filled with a tomatoe chutney style spread. Yum
Ham of the day- thinly cut ham with fabulous flavours
Suckling pig- oh my. This serves 2 ($55) and was the best. It tasted delicious and everyone on our table agreed it was the best
Table mates ordered the lobster roll and the pasta which whilst good paled next to the suckling pig.
Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. The bathrooms were über trendy and the wash area communal. I thought they were gorgeous and fit in with the rest of the decor
My only complaint at all was our waiter. So ..he was a great waiter, friendly and never left us sitting waiting. I just felt he was a little pushy in the beginning. His suggestions for the appetizers were great (brioche, ham and cheese) but quite forcibly "suggested" to where I felt bad saying no thanks. As it happened all his suggestions were great so I didn't come out feeling bitter at all.
I ordered a glass wine and he brought me a sample of it plus another glass which he suggested would go better with my meal. True the glass he brought did taste better but I am glad I looked at the menu as my glass was $10 and his replacement glass was $18. In that case I did say no thank you. He really knew his job but his style was just a little aggressive for me.
Finally to end on a high note we ordered the ten dollar milk shake and it was a malted milkskake with left hand milk stout added. I can't tell you how much I loved this!!!!!
