Welcome to Genesis

Steakhouse and Wine Bar

THE “GENESIS” OF GENESIS

After years of planning and hard work, second-generation restaurateur Jason Goldstein opened the first Kosher steakhouse in the Southwestern United States – Genesis Steakhouse & Wine Bar, in Houston, Texas.

He follows in the culinary footsteps of his mother, Susan Goldstein, who opened Dessert Delights in 1985 to provide the Houston community with delicious and unique desserts. “Suzie,” as she is known by her loyal customers, long-time friends, and family, recognized a need for quality kosher dining and catering in the Houston area. In 2005, she opened Suzie’s Mediterranean Grill, which continues to serve the Jewish community in Southwest Houston. Its success is due to her deep-rooted culinary traditions from her Persian upbringing. She always focuses on quality, service, and sharing the exotic flavors she loved from her childhood.

Genesis Steakhouse & Wine Bar is a groundbreaking achievement, bringing unmatched glatt kosher dining and sterling service to the Houston community, and its many visitors. Genesis promises to continually offer quality food rooted in age-old kosher values, which demand the highest selection standards. The ethical and cleanliness standards established and monitored by the Houston Kashruth Association (HKA) and Mehadrin Kashrus of Texas (MKT) are followed faithfully, with pride.

Within an elegant and welcoming environment, Genesis deepens the roots of family-inspired dining with updated gourmet interpretations. Impeccably served in the warm surroundings of the “Tree of Life” Dining Room, you’ll enjoy specialty selections from the classic bar to appetizers, soups, salads, entrée dishes, and desserts.

If you’re looking for a setting for a more private affair, guests may reserve Genesis’ modern Wine Room. Accommodating up to 40 seated guests, the Wine Room is a perfect setting for engagement parties, graduations, luncheons, and business functions. If you require a more grand space, there is the fabulous Grand Banquet Room, a flagship multi-media meeting and dining room that provides an elegant space for 80 guests. The entire restaurant is available every Friday night for private parties, which can seat 200, or 300 for a stand up cocktail party.

Hosting corporate and social functions each Friday evening, feel free to create your own unique, ideal menu from our Kosher Russian, French, Italian, Mediterranean, Spanish, Moroccan, Mexican or Chinese menus. Please call 713-665-2222 to book your event today.

Located in the heart of Bellaire, everyone at Genesis looks forward to seeing you and your family very soon.

*Genesis Steakhouse is a certified kosher restaurant. Kosher means “suitable,” “pure,” and disease-free. Kosher is a healthy way of eating according to the laws of the Torah. As an example, for a cow to be certified as kosher, it must be healthy, without any infection or cancer. In the USA, only 1 out of 4 FDA approved cows is actually disease free, and is therefore considered kosher. For more information about kosher cuisine, please visit http://www.koshercertification.org.uk/whatdoe.html

**In practical terms the Sabbath starts a few minutes before sunset on Friday and runs until an hour after sunset on Saturday, so it lasts about 25 hours. That is why Genesis Steakhouse is closed to the general public from 3 pm on Friday until 9 pm on Saturday. Genesis Steakhouse and Wine Bar hosts corporate and social functions each Friday evening. Please call 713-665-2222 to book your event today.
