Chef Terrence Gallivan & Chef Seth Siegel Gardner

Since meeting in NYC in 2005 while running Gordon Ramsay’s Maze, it has been Gallivan and Siegel-Gardner’s purpose to create a venue dedicated to the dishes that result from their history and collaboration. With the goal of creating a solidly pleasing and intimate Houston refuge, Gallivan and Siegel-Gardner’s “The Pass and Provisions” will channel the geographical complexity of previous stints at Aquavit, August, C-House, Auerole, The Modern, The Fat Duck, Viajante, Kata Robata, Alto and Fiamma, transforming a global pedigree into an elegant, regional cuisine all their own.

The Pass

In professional kitchens, “The Pass” represents the space where cooks, chefs and front of the house staff converge to plate, garnish and expedite a menu. Housed within Provisions, The Pass channels the energy and fluidity of this central point in the heart of a restaurant where ideas are executed.

Bringing the essence of the kitchen to each table, chefs will serve, describe and answer diner’s questions, creating an authentic experience for each customer while placing emphasis on the process behind transitioning food to plate. Similar to dining at a chef’s table, diners will be able to connect with the local and global inspiration and experience of each chef and behind every dish, in an upscale, casually elegant atmosphere, complimented by a thoughtful international wine list.

Additionally, a private dining room will be available to service intimate parties and large groups, with menus provided through one-on-one service where diners experience each dish fully, privately and completely.


Housed in a historic Italian import warehouse (home to the original Antone’s Po Boy Deli), Provisions is chefs and co-owners Seth Siegel-Gardner and Terrence Gallivan's unique take on a warm and casual neighborhood restaurant and bar. Featuring a 16-seat bar, 54-seat dining room and 40-seat terrace, Provisions offers a seasonal menu with many items cooked in the restaurant's large, wood-burning oven. The food menu is complimented by an accessible wine list and creative cocktail program.

The dining room of Provisions is and both intimate and inviting, anchored by a 20-seat semi-communal table, which hangs from the ceiling and runs through the middle of the space. Basketball flooring from a Dallas Baptist church’s gymnasium has been reclaimed to cover the walls and drawing focus to the Chef’s counter, Berkel Slicer, and subway tiled oven.

Provisions is centrally located at 807 Taft St. just off Allen Parkway, between W. Dallas. Complimentary valet parking is provided as well as self parking in the rear of the building off Rhode Place (access from W. Dallas).

The History

The building at 807 was constructed between 1954-1955. The original Antone’s PoBoy Deli and Import Company was a Houston Landmark for many years. The original owner of the building was La Vita Import Company owned and operated by Tony “Vito” Calderon. Vito operated in the location until the 1960’s when it was renamed Antone’s Import Company. At the time, the import company had operations in the warehouses at the rear of the building and opened the deli in the front retail building.
