Potente focuses on sourcing local products whenever possible and uses only the highest quality ingredients. The kitchen is overseen by Executive Chef Danny Trace and supported by Sous Chef Hayden Hulings. Chef Danny shops the local Houston Farmer’s Markets every Saturday morning to hand select the fruits and vegetables that he will serve at Potente. The modern Italian menu features all wild-caught seafood selections, USDA steaks and house made pastas.
The restaurant’s extensive wine list features a large selection of Italian wines, as well as a section of California’s finest vintners. Should you need a recommendation from our comprehensive list, a sommelier is available during dinner service to assist. In addition to our vast collection of wines, a selection of fine whiskeys, scotches, tequilas, spirits, liquors and craft beers are available.
Potente boasts one of the best Happy Hour menus in downtown Houston. Happy Hour is available seven days a week from 5-7pm in the bar area. Happy Hour drinks starting at $4 and bar bites at $3.
