It was shocking to find Kaluz packed and bustling on a Monday night. It was more shocking to find a chic, multimillion-dollar restaurant with a well-rounded menu and detail-oriented servers pop up from nowhere.

A bit of investigation found an experienced, well-funded team behind the waterfront eatery, which sits overlooking the intracoastal and Commercial Boulevard. Kaluz is partly owned and run by David Baldwin. The former Houston's (now Hillstone's) manager spent more than a decade in Argentina running a small chain of American-style steak houses.

In coming back to the U.S., he and his Argentine and American partners sought to combine their experience in the corporate restaurant world with a menu that tries to offer something for everyone. Crispy flatbreads (à la Seasons 52) and burgers appear alongside pricey lamb chops and sea scallops.

With a full dining room on a Monday night and years of running rigorous corporate operations, Kaluz seemed poised for expansion. "I do want to grow, but I do want to make sure we get everything tightened up," Baldwin said. "'We have a few things on the menu I want to adjust; we have to let some of the dogs go."
