Paper City features Scott Sulma and shares his insights into the world of fine wine

“I clearly recall the first time I saw Scott Sulma in action,” writes Paper City lifestyle and food editor James Brock.

“It was at Tony’s, and he was talking to guests seated at a table near mine. Earlier in the evening the guests, a young man and woman who seemed a little uncertain about the menu and wine list, oozed discomfort. Sulma, I am now certain, had noticed their anxiousness as well, and was on a mission, smile on his face, voice calm and authoritative. He explained a few of the menu items, and talked about some wine selections. The young couple’s demeanor changed rapidly, to one of ease and anticipation. Another culinary crisis averted, two more guests won over and satisfied. That’s the Sulma formula.”

Private dining and events options at Vallone’s

Above: Vallone’s can accommodate private parties and event up to 300 persons. “I’ve never seen a private event so professionally and elegantly executed,” noted one recent banquet guest.

Since it opened in late 2013, Vallone’s has quickly become one of Houston’s top lunch, dinner, and happy hour destinations. Tony Vallone’s Americana-inspired menu features some of his favorite dishes from the American culinary tradition, from French Onion Soup and the “Tex” — two cheese enchiladas served with a center-cut filet — to Baked Alaska and housemade Cotton Candy (even the vanilla wafers for his banana pudding are baked in-house).

Of course, Tony’s signature pastas and the 55-day-aged steaks are also stars of the show in his cozy, fireplace-lit dining room. “It’s where the west side comes to wind down,” says Tony, who has recreated the warmth of the original Vallone’s, a favorite of Houston restaurant-goers. “And it’s given me a chance to revisit some of my favorite Americana dishes.”

A colorful “signature” cocktail program and “50 wines under $50” add to the restaurant’s appeal.

Our expansive 2nnd Floor Private Dining Rooms can accommodate anything from a company business meeting, an important birthday with family, or a full wedding with reception area, band or DJ and a dance floor.

Both rooms are accessible by our 33-foot all-glass elevator with wrap around enclosed glass staircase. The private dining room is a dividable space, can seat up to 160. Both rooms can also hold up to 300 people for a cocktail reception.

Divided, the Broiler Room seats approximately 36 and the Meritage Room seats approximately 120. Both Rooms are available for Lunch or Dinner and can be booked a year in advance. Vallone’s: true Americana cooking, prepared with the highest-quality ingredients and served with a personal touch that only Tony Vallone can deliver.

“Part of Vallone’s genius was to make Houstonians feel that the world was at their feet at a time when the city was increasingly staking its claim on a national and international stage… Another facet of Vallone’s genius was to make his restaurant fun.”
