As chef de cuisine at 2011 Houston Rising Star Restaurateur Bryan Caswell’s Stella Sola, Chef Justin Basye approaches cuisine from foraging to fork. His cooking style is built on a keen awareness of seasonality, a commitment to sourcing local products, and the adventure in using a multitude of cooking techniques—from curing and smoking to braising and sous vide. Basye also enhances the Stella Sola menu with his adept hand at curing. House-made pepperoni appears grated in the stellar Gulf Snapper Crudo, adding a fresh saltiness and pleasantly gritty texture.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Gulf Snapper Crudo with Marinated Fennel, Radishes, Pickled Red Onion, Grated Pepperoni, and Foam of Cara Cara Orange, Meyer Lemon, and Lime
  • Grilled Texas Ox Heart, Caramelized Cauliflower, Capers, Pine Nuts, Paprika Butter, and Garlic
