51fifteen Cuisine and Cocktails


Houston Galleria's Saks Fifth Avenue


Located on the second floor of Houston's newly renovated Saks Fifth Avenue is 51fifteen Cuisine and Cocktails, a swanky hideaway, featuring New American fare.

The space is undeniably posh; boasting gilded accents, mise–en–scène , and an overall super chic mid-century modern motif. 51fifteen Cuisine and Cocktails boasts a full bar, as well as a sprawling dining room, and a semi-private room.




#Fare

The menu, created by Chef Pedro Silva is "globally inspired and locally minded." The menu offers a wide range of New American fare, including steaks, soups and salads, seafood and sandwiches. The Crab Cake Maryland, Seared Pork Belly and The 51 Burger are my favorite items on the lunch and dinner menus. The Stuffed Bananas Foster French Toast is my husband's favorite of 51fifteen's brunch offerings.

Calvin's favorite dish, 51fifteen's Bananas Foster Stuffed French Toast 
The restaurant's bar touts a sumptuous variance of craft cocktails, for those on the hunt for swanky sips. I'd be hard-pressed if forced to name my top pick from the cocktail cart du jour, as I've tried a few and they were all divine! I definitely recommend trying the Silver Tequila Margatini-a splendid mélange of a margarita and a martini. The Lavender Peach Bellini/Martini is another one of my personal faves. You can't beat 51fifteen's $7 happy hour menu after a day of shopping!
