The Top 5 "Power Dining" Locations in Houston: Where to See and Be Seen

Tony Vallone's namesake restaurant is the epitome of a power dining spot in Houston, partially because Tony personally knows anyone who's anyone, and friends of Tony's love the special attention they receive from the staff and from Tony himself. I recently dined at Tony's, and even though I make a meager journalist's salary and am lacking the appropriate table manners for a place like this, everyone who works there treated me with respect and made sure I had the best meal possible. Chef Grant Gordon's modernist cuisine is cutting-edge for many diners in the blue-hair club, but people keep coming back to see how Tony and company will challenge them next. With a wine menu featuring bottles in the $20,000-per-bottle range, it's definitely a place for heavy hitters with heavy wallets to impress their peers. And who wouldn't be impressed when the owner himself comes by to check on you during your meal?
