Tuesday, Nov. 27: That’s the date that The Pass – the fine dining portion of The Pass & Provisions – is set to open. Reservations can be made beginning Friday, Nov. 16 at 5 p.m. by calling 713-628-9020 or online at OpenTable.com.
When The Pass opens it will complete the dual dining room concept of The Pass & Provisions envisioned by chef-partners Seth Siegel-Gardner and Terrence Gallivan. Provisions, the more casual side of the operation, opened in September to great foodie fanfare. The restaurant has been praised for its menu of pizza/pasta/salads, its diverse wine list and craft cocktail offerings, and its industrial chic design.
The Pass is expected to be an ultra special dining experience. With only 36 seats, intimate restaurant will feature an open kitchen; chefs will be “pass” between the kitchen and dining room to deliver food or prepare tableside. According to the chefs, the restaurant will open with two dining options: a five- and eight-course dinner with option to pair strictly with wine or with a beverage pairing that will include cocktails, wine and beer. Prices have not been set.
The Pass will not turn tables meaning there will be only one seating per night (Tuesday through Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m.). It might very well be the city’s most exclusive dining experience and most hard-to-get reservation.
