36th Anniversary Wine Dinner at Backstreet Cafe

October 23, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Celebrate one of Houston’s best-loved restaurants — and most talented hospitality couples — during a special anniversary meal. Restaurateur Tracy Vaught opened the restaurant in 1983 after deciding that her former career as a geologist was no longer calling to her. The simple cafe has since evolved into an award-winning destination for casual dinners with family, corporate events and special occasions. James Beard Award – winning Chef Hugo Ortega originally joined the staff as a dishwasher and worked his way up to the top, eventually marrying Vaught and opening additional acclaimed locales together throughout Houston. The anniversary is a time to celebrate the restaurant’s evolution and the flavors that make it an icon in Houston’s culinary landscape. “Backstreet Cafe is my great leap of faith and my dream come true,” says Vaught.

The dinner is $119 per person plus tax and gratuity, and features a selection of dishes thoughtfully paired with exceptional wines selected by sommelier Sean Beck. The full menu is available below.
