New club provides Houston area young professionals with dining opportunities

Houston businessman Nick Florescu, who has a penchant for fine dining, has created The Urbane Society, a members only club that provides young professionals a 20 percent discount to fine dining venues. The Urbane Society, which is “exclusive by choice, inclusive by design,” provides professionals aged 21 to 34 with dining opportunities that they may have not had before due to budget restraints. Florescu, who is married to KPRC2 news anchor Dominique Sachse, noted that he loves going to out eat with his wife, and also eats out a lot when she is working. Because of that, their children have also grown up in the fine-dining atmosphere.
