Fifty years of extraordinary…
On April 1, 2015, Tony Vallone and Tony’s celebrated fifty years as Houston’s premier dining destination.
Tony’s is “better than ever,” wrote Houston Chronicle restaurant critic Alison Cook in her recent profile of Tony and his fifty years in the business.
“Part of Vallone’s genius,” she writes, “was to make Houstonians feel that the world was at their feet at a time when the city was increasingly staking its claim on a national and international stage. Nothing was too much trouble, from the freshest Dover sole to hulking knobs of white truffle, or the glistening Beluga caviar that Baron Ricky di Portanova would, by special request, theatrically toss into a plate of pasta for his table mates.”
