The Astros and Caviar Go Together Like Carlos Correa and Daniella Rodriguez
It’s Gourmet Foodie Heaven
BY SHELBY HODGE // 11.02.17 // PAPERCITY MANAGZINE
With World Series celebrations in order, timing could not be better for a night of caviar, truffles, bubbly and Belvedere — to benefit the Astros Foundationand the Astros Harvey Relief Fund. The “Evening of Indulgence & Extravagance” takes place Tuesday, November 7, at Potente, which happens to be Astros owner Jim Crane‘s experiment as restaurateur.
DR Delicacy and Potente chef Danny Trace are teaming up for the six-course dinner extravaganza with the former providing the caviar and truffles and the latter delivering on a menu worthy of a World Series victory celebration. Moet & Chandon and Dom Perignon will be icing down the champagne at the restaurant that is within cork-popping distance of Minute Maid Park, home to the 2017 World Series champions.
Reservations, $200 per person, are available here. For that tariff, diners will taste four different caviars, Texas Wagyu beef, black truffle spaghetti, foie gras mousse, foie gras torchon, and more.
Tis the season for baseball and truffles, a happy coincidence that DR Delicacy is giddily embracing as the first direct importer of fresh black and white truffles in the southern U.S. Add to the company’s luxury larder caviars, foie gras, edible gold and the like.
The importer of gourmet foods has also teamed up with UberEATS to offer home or office delivery of all manner of delicacies including Russian and French blinis to pair with DR/Delicacy’s Royal Osetra caviar, duck foie gras torchons, or smoked salmon. It’s a holiday thing, available within a six-mile radius of the company’s headquarters at 4120 Directors Row, Suite A, 77092. That includes parts of Tanglewood and Memorial. The service is available via the UberEATS app on Thursday and Friday, 9 am to 3 pm. Saturday and evening hours are planned.
