The secret is out, speakeasies are in. So far this year Houston has been bequeathed with a number of surreptitious hangouts, including a hidden 20’s era speakeasy in Four Seasons, as well as a cinema-themed, speakeasy-styled restaurant and cocktail lounge in the Galleria area. The latest nondescript local is to open in town is Patton Steakhouse in Savoir at Yale Street and 14th Street.
From Brian Doke, owner of Savoir in The Heights, comes Patton’s – a new speakeasy steakhouse concept. Tucked behind the Savoir bar, Patton is a 1,500-square-foot chamber ensconced in the ambient light of chandeliers. Furnished with leather banquets and moody chairs, Patton’s offers a one-of-a-kind atmosphere by which to savor prime meat cuts, classic cocktails, and live jazz performances.
“Houston has always had an affinity for steakhouses, and the city has no shortage of premiere steakhouses,” said Doke in a press release. “However, that doesn’t include The Heights even though the neighborhood has morphed into one of the most dynamic restaurant scenes in Houston. At Patton’s, we will offer the prime cuts of steak that Houstonians love and serve them up in a one-of-a-kind, intimate space that is wholly unique.”
As for its menu, Patton’s features steakhouse classics such as Ribeye, Filet, Wagyu, Bone-in Ribeye, and carefully sourced New York Strip. Other dishes include Shrimp Cocktail, Waldorf Salad, Beef Carpaccio, Tuna Tartare, and Sea Bass.
Béarnaise, house “A1”, bordelaise, chimichurri, au poivre sauce, in addition to a dedicated bread program will also be available to elevate the dining experience. Its libation menu features an extensive list of wines, as well as classic cocktails including its signature Patton’s Gin & Tonic and The Bandito – a fig-infused mule.
Pattion’s has opened in Savoir at Yale Street and 14th Street. It’s open solely for dinner on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 5 – 10 pm. From 1 pm – 5 pm Tuesdays through Friday, the speakeasy is open for Happy Hour pre-dinner cocktails (from 3 – 5 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Reservations are highly encouraged.
