Locally-Sourced Beef is the Focus at Olivette

Breathtakingly beautiful…tranquil…just a few of the words used to describe the Houstonian’s 18-acre property in Uptown. It’s home to an award-winning spa, fitness club and unforgettable fine dining at Olivette! Recently I recently linked with Executive Chef Neal Cox for the scoop on some brand new menu items centered around quality beef from Augustus Ranch in Yoakum, Texas.

Olivette's panna cotta

I’m Passionate About This Panna Cotta!

Feel the passion this Valentine’s Day, thanks to the good folks at Olivette at The Houstonian. Their Passion Fruit Panna Cotta was a sensational hit last year. I don’t often eat dessert unless it’s chocolate, but I have to say this one gives chocolate a run for its money! The zesty, exotic flavor blew me away. Watch how it came together in the video above. It’s surprisingly easy to prepare.

Olivette's Brazed Pork Shank

A powerhouse of pork & Pinot at Olivette

The atmosphere surrounding the beautiful grounds at the Houstonian Hotel are full of enchantment this time of year. Whether it’s shopping you’re looking for, or simply a relaxing evening out to dinner, this location in the middle of Houston is incredible! I caught up recently with Neal Cox, the Executive Chef of Olivette, the hotel’s exquisite restaurant, to sample his highly sought after Braised Pork Shank.
