Four Seasons Houston goes galactic

by James Wilkinson

Four Seasons Hotel Houston is kicking off Space City Month with a range of experiences to be enjoyed during the entire month of July to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing in 1969.

Destination bar Bayou and Bottle’s signature Space City Sour (pictured) is getting a fun update to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.

During the entire month of July, the signature cocktail made with Old Forester bourbon, house-made caramelised pineapple syrup, fresh lemon juice, turbo, a dash of Angostura aromatic bitters, and topped with egg whites will feature an edible image of an astronaut landing on the moon.

From 5:00pm to 11:00pm daily, guests are also invited to dine like an astronaut with Bayou and Bottle’s a modern twist on a classic 1969 TV dinner.

The Space City TV Dinner is available for USD$19.69 and includes an entree of fried chicken with mac and cheese, southern biscuits and gravy, coleslaw with apples, honey and lime, and orange “Tang” pie for dessert.

Travel back in time to the year America landed on the moon with Taylor Fladgate 1969 Single Harvest Port available at Quattro Restaurant for USD$75 for a three ounce serving.

Pair with Chef Emily Rosenberg’s Astronaut Ice Cream Sundae featuring vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice creams encapsulated in a chocolate sphere shaped like the moon with chocolate covered puffed rice “moon rocks” served with warm chocolate sauce.

An additional selection of port pairings will also be available with Quattro’s desserts including a rosé port, white port, late-bottled vintage port, and tawny port.
