Be a Prima Donna, Pre-Madonna, at Quattro

So, you may have heard that Madonna is coming to town this week. If you were lucky enough to get tickets to her performances at the Toyota Center tomorrow night or Thursday night, you may now be wondering where to park and where to grab dinner or drinks before the show.

Quattro at the Four Seasons is running a special deal tomorrow and Thursday just for you Material Girl fans by offering a $39 prix-fixe dinner, free parking and a complimentary glass of wine after the show.

The three-course dinner includes shared appetizers for your entire table and your choice of chef Maurizio Ferrarese's lasagna alla bolognese made with Texas Akaushi beef and ricotta cheese or slow-cooked salmon with broccolini, brussels sprouts, carrots and Houston "Sutton Sweet" tomato relish for the main course. For dessert, it's Quattro's own house-made gelato.

After dinner, walk off your meal and into the show at the Toyota Center (the arena is only three short blocks away, and parking this close would be at least $20 otherwise). And when you've seen Madonna do the last of her encores for the evening, walk back to Vinoteca -- the wine bar directly next door to Quattro on the third floor -- for a free glass of wine before you pick up your car from the valet.

All you need to do for this great deal? Make reservations by calling 713-276-4700, and make sure to bring your concert tickets.
