Potente, the highly anticipated restaurant from Houston Astros’ Owner Jim Crane, opened in early 2017, set across the street from Downtown’s Minute Maid Park. The restaurant promises upscale Italian fare offered in a luxurious and eye-catching setting.
Designed by Gensler, the sophisticated space is a sultry mix of gold, black and white. Modern hexagon floor tiles mix with contemporary black leather barstools and dramatic, wrap-around banquettes. Oversized contemporary art hangs nearby, as industrial mesh shelving is suspended above the wrap-around bar. On the menu, the attention to detail carries over in daily seafood selections, homemade pastas and steaks. The restaurant’s extensive wine list highlights a healthy mix of Italian wines and West Coast vintners.
Potente is open for dinner, daily.
