THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Katsuya by Starck Houston Restaurant Review

: Pricey and oh-so-chic, Katsuya by Starck Houston is a place to see and be seen. But don’t let the over-the-top, sexy design by Philippe Starck and all the beautiful people lounging about deter you from trying the fine Japanese cuisine. The first collaboration from sbe group and master sushi chef Katsuya Uechi outside of California, this 8,000-square-foot fine dining spot in the West Ave multi-use complex boasts fresh craft cocktails --- try the Burning Mandarin with Serrano peppers --- and a sushi bar to tempt the early crowd. Start with the baked snow crab hand roll and the crispy rice with albacore tuna. We would return for the Kobe Prime filet topped with foie gras in a wine reduction paired with sautéed shishito peppers as well as the sukiyaki maki, a dish of Kobe beef enrobing cabbage and mushrooms, anointed with a poached egg. Desserts are pretty standard, as in a nice chocolate cake. But for sheer visual spectacle, Katsuya should not be missed.
