Meet the Family:
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.
Growing up on a farm in Delaware, Steve has always had a passion and respect for fresh and local food. While working as a part-time cook during his Junior year of college, Steve realized that this passion was best served by him in the kitchen. Since this realization, Steve has cooked in fine dining restaurants in Delaware, New York, New Jersey, Florida, Philadelphia, and Houston, and he has loved every minute of it.
Logan grew up in St. Louis and form an early age has always been surrounded by great cooks especially his mother and grandmothers, who always from an early age encouraged him to play with his food. Getting his professional cooking career started at Larry Forgione’s An American Place, Logan worked his way up from the bottom as an unpaid stagier. Over the next few years he’d go on to work in New York, Chicago, Yountville, for chefs like Bruce Sherman, Dan Barber and Thomas Keller. Meeting Terrence in New York Logan decided next stop would be Houston were he has played integral role at The Pass and Provisions since day one. While not working, enjoying riding my bike in traffic or reading, but usually just takes naps.

Upon moving to Houston John took jobs at Chez Nous, Pondicheri and Downhouse before helping open The Pass and Provisions in August of 2012.
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. The Pass channels the energy and fluidity of this central point in the heart of a restaurant where ideas are executed. Similar to dining at a chef’s table, diners will be able to connect with the local and global inspiration and experience behind every dish, in an upscale, casually elegant atmosphere.
The menu in the Pass gives guests a choice of either an omnivore or vegetarian menu, that can be five of eight courses in duration.
Additionally available are thoughtful and eclectic wine and mixed beverage pairings, which rotate between beer, wine and spirit.
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).
For information please email email@example.com
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.
The Bar at The Pass & Provisions is open Mon-Wed. from 11am-12am and Thurs-Sat. 11am-2am.
