State Fare

Vallone’s, Houston.

May 1998By Comments

At Vallone’s, restaurateur Tony Vallone’s lushly retro new venue (2811 Kirby Drive, Houston), everything is bigger than life. Take, for example, the restaurant’s Schwarzenegger-size boar chop, filled with fresh sautéed spinach, toasted pine nuts, melted mozzarella, and Parma’s inimitable dry-cured prosciutto ham. With ingredients from four nutritional areas, the dish is a food pyramid all by itself. If you add Vallone’s salad of sliced ripe tomatoes, red onions, and Roquefort in a perfectly balanced red-wine-and-sherry vinaigrette, you will have more than met your minimum daily requirement for self-indulgence.
