A neighborhood favorite since 1981, Carmelo’s Cucina Italiana is a traditional, family-owned and operated restaurant serving fresh, rustic Italian-American food nestled between Houston’s Memorial area and Energy Corridor. The phrase La Famiglia e Tutto (“Family is everything”) drives everything at Carmelo’s as Proprietor Benjamin Berg and his brother and Executive Chef Partner Daniel Berg are committed to sourcing only the highest-quality, Italian products paired with the best local ingredients available.
We’re ecstatic to announce that The Urbane Society has officially partnered with Tony’s, arguably Houston’s most storied premier dining destination.
Founded in 1965 by a then 22-year-old Mr. Tony Vallone, Tony’s and Tony, himself, have become synonymous with excellence in authentic dining. Fifty years ago, Tony’s launched as a small Italian eatery on Sage Road. Today, Tony’s stands at the top of Houston’s dining scene – and for good reason – as the restaurant marries elegance in fine dining with the genuine good nature, charm, and authenticity on which its reputation was built in the ‘60s.
Brunch @ B&B Butchers. Saturdays and Sundays, 11AM – 3PM. Check out their rooftop patio, now climate controlled. What to order? Insider favorites include the Chicken & Waffle, the Hill Country Omelet, the Stuffed French Toast, or if you’re feeling healthy go for the Power Up (egg white scramble, whole wheat avocado toast & salsa roja).
You wanted to have a productive morning but now you’re in the mood for a couple of daytime cocktails?
Please join us in welcoming our newest partner restaurant, Emmaline!
The Urbane Society is committed to crafting a portfolio of dining destinations that’s specifically tailored to the interests of our members – you, the young professional. We look for excellence in food and drink. And, perhaps just as important, if not more, we look for the intangibles - – the energy and the action at the bar, the comfort and anonymity of a dimly lit corner dining booth, the overall ambiance that gently knocks you off your feet upon entrance.
Urbane is the first private, members-only discount service that targets young professionals in the digital era. We recognize that our members communicate with each other, with their clients, their colleagues, their friends and family in a different manner – digitally, on their phones, over social media ... We’ve studied the behavior of this younger generation and, in response, we’ve developed an app that is specifically engineered to serve our target member, the young professional.
We are thrilled to launch The Urbane Society in Houston, a city for which we have a lot of love!
Urbane is founded as a members-only club for young professionals aged 21 – 34 who are interested in experiencing premium fine dining at an affordable rate. Urbane’s roots lie in our affection for dining out and our desire to bring that experience we so enjoy to young professionals.
All Urbane Memberships and Services are temporarily on-hold in line with the current COVID-19 limitations. Please continue supporting our partner restaurants and services that are continuing to do take-out and delivery services at this time. Urbane memberships will be reviewed once the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, and restaurants can resume normal business.
