Need a new place to eat? How about a honeycomb hideout or just a place to sit back, relax and nibble on something spectacular while listening to great music in an amazing atmosphere?  Then Dolce Houston is the place for you.

This hidden gem on FM 529 and Barker Cypress is tucked away from the hub bub of the city. It’s not only perfect for date nights or a evening of peace for a single person, but it is also great for those looking to let their hair down and party with a few friends.

Dolce Houston is a posh, hot spot with a friendly, well-trained staff. Its peaceful ambiance makes you leave the stress and struggles from a long work week at the front door as you sink dark wooden furniture in the dimly-lit room with soft jazz playing in the background.

Business owners Al Rucker and James Parker have created an elegant environment for anyone to enjoy a night out on the town.

“Our goal was to bring a delicious restaurant/ bistro, with an upscale ultra lounge to a prominent area in Houston.  Cypress and Katy are two of the fastest growing areas the northwest suburbs, and now there is somewhere with a luxury Midtown, Galleria feel right in the comfort of your neighborhood,” Rucker said.

And another thing, the food is amazing.

Some of the MUST try items were the:

• Crab Cakes- served over caramelized corn, perfectly cooked and seasoned. The sweetness of the corn paired well with the natural saltiness of the fresh picked blue crabs.
• Catfish & Grits – breaded, fried catfish served over a bed of grits. It had me thinking I was out of my dress and in my PJs at home. It’s like North Houston’s twist on Breakfast Klub’s infamous Fried Catfish & Grits. Actually, even better.
• Lobster Tacos – fresh, succulent whole lobster claws in a cheesy Southwestern and Cajun mix served open face in soft tortilla. You cannot eat one, three at the very least.
• Salmon Kabobs – Seasoned chunks of wild caught salmon served on a skewer with onions, pineapples, and bell peppers.

Every Wednesday night, the lounge features a comedy show with the hottest comedians, and on Sundays, there are two specialties to enjoy.
Sunday Brunch serves up some of the best fried chicken and waffles and buttered pecan French toast in town, and the “Soulful Sunday” evenings features the baddest bands.

Dolce Houston is northwest Houston’s saving grace from the long drives into the city for delicious, comfort food, and upscale venue. It does not disappoint. Don’t sit in traffic on that long commute home.  Hop off, come pull up a chair and out a napkin, and enjoy yourself.
