Quattro Restaurant Review: Four Seasons’ Quattro is romantic and contemporary with a great view of downtown Houston, yet comfortable and family-friendly, thanks to an all-day kids’ menu devoted to tasty Texas bites. Chef Maurizio Ferrarese often walks the floor to chat with guests, and while he prepares special theme-concert menus, like the 2015 Garth Brooks barbecue feast, for people heading over to the nearby Toyota Center, his claim to fame are the seasonal breakfasts, lunches and dinners accented with Italian flourishes. Staples like garlic shrimp with pesto capellini, asparagus risotto and hearty antipasti are familiar beginnings. For a bigger appetite, order the whiskey-braised short ribs with rich hickory sauce nestled next to corn, black-eyed peas and green shelling beans, or the double lamb chop plated with sweet potatoes and asparagus. Miniature desserts are a signature ending. For a special occasion, reserve the chef’s table, located in a warm, Tuscan-inspired room where one can see the production kitchen. The extensive wine list features over 350 global selections.
