Bosscat Kitchen & Libations is the kind of place that’s so fantastic, you’re not sure where to begin when describing it to folks. The menu? The décor? The staff, who’ve all achieved that rare combination of incredibly hip and very kind?

For the purposes of this story, let’s start with Houston Restaurant Weeks. Everyone’s favorite foodie holiday for a cause (the wonderful Houston Food Bank) ends on September 30, and with such an extensive list of participating restaurants, it can be difficult to choose which places you’ll prioritize over the next two weeks. Houston, we have a recommendation.

California implant Bosscat arrived on the Houston restaurant scene earlier this year, and they’ve been taking it by storm with a clever menu of comfort food, elevated with contemporary flavors. Chef Peter Petro leads the crowd-drawing charge with his popular dishes, and his special Houston Restaurant Weeks dinner menu is a real winner.

Dinner ($35, $5 donated) is a mouthwatering combination of soul-satisfying southern fare and exciting flavor pairings. The Boneless Korean Style Short Rib (second course; gochujang mac + corn, kimchi, parmesan) and Vietnamese Gulf Tuna Wraps (first course; pickled vegetables, jalapeno, cilantro, butter leaf lettuce) are two noteworthy examples, while the beloved Burger + Bosscat Fries also makes a welcome appearance on the second course list. The third and final course features three tempting dessert choices: Bourbon Milk Cake, Louisiana Peach Cobbler, or Chocolate + PB + Bacon (a brownie).
