KRISTEN POWELL ~ Founder, Visionary, Chef & Sommelier
“I love bringing people together to connect and share fun and laughter. The Barking Pig is a place where we can all just be ourselves.”Native Houstonian Kristen Powell discovered her passion and love for serving customers beginning at age 10 when she worked by her grandfather’s side at his family grocery store during summers. Her passion flourished while working for the Taste of Texas as a high school student, and so did her interest in a new area: wine. Kristen went on to earn a coveted Sommelier certification and with equal parts of food and beverage expertise helped open several wine bars in Houston. Ready to start her own successful venture, she created a winner on her first try in Houston’s Rice Village area with Simone on Sunset, which became known as one of the city’s best wine bars under Kristen’s 2010-2014 ownership.
In November 2015, Kristen brought her spirited talent for great food, great drinks and great fun to another favorite Houston neighborhood, the Heights, with the opening of The Barking Pig.
