Houston Texans Star Previews a Hot New Restaurant

Super Art Jazzes Up the Sneak Peek

BY // 02.06.17

What: VIP reception and art unveiling with Houston Texan Whitney Mercilus and artist Charles Fazzino

Where: Bosscat Kitchen & Libations

PC Moment: A tony crowd of 100 gathered at the soon-to-open Bosscat Kitchen for an exclusive art unveiling honoring Super Bowl LI. Crafted by artist Charles Fazzino, the officially-licensed commemorative 3-D painting was unveiled to the invite-only crowd by Houston Texans linebacker Whitney Mercilus.

The $15,000 painting was donated to Mercilus’ WithMerci Foundation, which provides advocate services and support to families of children with disabilities and special needs, and was auctioned later that week at a Super Bowl week charity event — the Bulls & Blackjack Celebrity Poker tournament.

While art ruled the first half of the exclusive event, it was Bosscat’s flavor-packed fare that had the crowd buzzing by the end of the night. Guests were granted a sneak peek of the Newport Beach-based restaurant’s culinary chops with petite portions of marinated beef short rib served with kimchi potato salad; pimento cheese deviled eggs; shrimp BLT sliders; and the Bosscat barbecue pulled pork sandwich.

The whiskey-centric restaurant is expected to make its official debut later this month.
