Brought to life by Michael Hsu Office of Architecture, the Houston location of il Bracco is a welcoming neighborhood gathering spot featuring elevated Italian cuisine. The inviting dining room has a residential feel, while a lively and intimate patio anchored by a fireplace offers an alternate lounge and dining experience. Slate and marble floors guide diners through the space, while custom-cut travertine accents highlight the bar and lounge areas both inside and out.

Says Hsu: “The design is inspired by vintage Milan and the eclectic influences of Northern Italy, with striking curves, rich materials and thoughtful details to set the mood. High-contrast lighting and curated artwork add a refined character to the space.”

The dark-and-moody lounge’s cozy seating mingles with curated art from the personal collection of restaurant owners Mary Lucille and Robert Quick of Western Addition. Notable artists include Richard Serra, Alexander Calder, Alex Katz and Will Murchison.
