Fifi: The Pass

By Unknown - 8:43 PM

Oh, hello. I'm Fifi.

When Vy asked if I wanted to do a guest blog on The Tasteful, I quickly and happily agreed.  I admire Vy's blogging prowess and her posts are always delicious, cheerful, and fun. Much like Vy herself (that’s right, delicious).

I have a blog of my own, but it isn't food focused.  Despite this, I knew I had the perfect subject for an entry for The Tasteful--The Pass.

The Pass & Provisions is a two-in-one restaurant in Houston from chefs Terrence Gallivan and Seth Siegel-Gardner.  The PASS restaurant offers a prix fixe 5- or 8-course while Provisions offers more casual options that you order from the menu.  I had eaten at Provisions last year, but had yet to try The Pass.  The Pass has recently gotten some great accolades, so it was the perfect time to finally have a taste.  The boyfriend and I accompanied Issa from We Wear Things (another blog that I contribute to.  BLOGS FOR EVERYONE.) and her husband for dinner there to celebrate his belated birthday.

Since I am predominantly a style blogger I thought I’d include some photos of what I wore that night.  A basic black jersey dress with a not-so-basic slit and asymmetrical hem.

I wanted to highlight my “headgear” (i.e. piercings), so up went the hair into a topknot.  I thought the simplicity of the dress would be a good way to also highlight the heels.  Heels I may or may not have snuck away from hosting a July 4 party to purchase...HAHAHAH sad.

Onward to the eatings though!  I won't wax poetic about the food, but rather let the photos speak for themselves.  I will say that service was impeccable, the decor beautiful, ambiance friendly and not fussy, and the food was playful and delicious.  Overall, The Pass is worth a visit for the culinary experience, and the buzz is not at all without grounds.  I will suggest that unless you enjoy your brown liquor and beer, get the wine pairing instead of the beverage pairing that they offer.  Now, enjoy:

A closer look at the "Gjetost Caramale" which was named like so because they look like caramel candies in their wrappers.  May have been my favorite bite of the night actually!
