And a head is a wonderful thing for dinner.
Channel your carnivorous ways for CBD Provisions, a sleek Texas brasserie that’s feeding you burgers, redfish and entire pig heads, opening Thursday next door to the Joule.
What you’ve got here is a sprawling lair of exposed bricks, reclaimed woods and vintage bulbs. Attractive place. High on ambiance. But just in case you’re hungry or thirsty or something, the kitchen’s putting out three square meals a day and the bar’s stocked with 16 taps. So it’s functional, too.
If you live or work downtown (hell, if you’ve ever heard of downtown), great. Eat here. Drink here. Take clients and visiting dignitaries here. Reserve a table in the back by the open kitchen, and inquire about chili-infused mezcal cocktails. Those’ll break the ice and prepare you for some broiled Gulf oysters. Or slow-roasted pork shoulder. Or the smart play, which is obviously both.
Then again, maybe you scrap that plan entirely and go with something family-style. Like a massive Wagyu rib steak or that whole pig head.
Wouldn’t be the first time you audibled to pig head.
