Mr. Perry has a creative vision for his restaurants, an exceptional eye for detail, and a true understanding of what makes a restaurant appealing to his customers. I work with the team to realize that vision

Perry's Steakhouse and Grill, a Houston based restaurant chain, has chosen Jost Lunstroth and Vineyard Wine Cellars to design and build the custom wine features in their new location in downtown Austin. The dining room will include at least three custom wine features.
Perry's award-winning Steakhouse & Grille is a premier dining venue that offers an exceptional menu with an atmosphere of taste, featuring live jazz, climate-controlled wine vaults and exclusive wine lists. The current locations are in and around Houston and all have unique wine features. Lunstroth has designed and built several wine features for Perry's including the 14' wine glass enclosed wine tower in the Memorial City location in Houston.
Jost Lunstroth of Vineyard Wine Cellars in Houston, was the winner of the National Award in the 2006 / 07 Sub-Zero and Wolf Kitchen Design Competition for Best Use of Wine Storage in a Unique Location. This award is presented by Sub-Zero to the design selected by the judges as part of the bi-annual Kitchen Design Competition. The competition is open to designers and architects from around the world. Lunstroths design was chosen the best in the category which had over one hundred entries from around the world.
Chris Perry, President and CEO of Perry's Steakhouse and Grille, said: "We take great pride in all aspects of our wine offerings - the selection, the pricing, the service, and the display. Jost works very closely with our team to develop and execute wine features that are both functional and creative. The wine features in our restaurants have to be functional because they store the wine that we serve and they must be creative since they are an important part of the decor." Perry's was awarded the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence in 2003 and 2004.
"We all work together - Mr. Perry, Rick Henderson, the Director of Operations, Grady Green, the general contractor and myself - to create wine features that are visually interesting and functional. It is challenging to develop designs that are both creative and functional, especially for a restaurant with such an emphasis on wines." said Jost Lunstroth.
"Mr. Perry has a creative vision for his restaurants, an exceptional eye for detail, and a true understanding of what makes a restaurant appealing to his customers. I work with the team to realize that vision," added Lunstroth.
The Austin location will have at least three wine features that are different from any in the area. The wine features will be made from bubinga wood, an exotic not often seen in wine rooms.
