Shelby Hodge at the chic palazzo-inspired hotel. Photography Roswitha Vogler. S ince their arrival in Houston from Milan in the 1980s, developer Giorgio Borlenghi and wife, Cathy, have made their mark not only across the skyline but also in the city's haute monde and hospitality arena. The latter, man- ifested in Hotel Granduca, is a jewel of a boutique hotel in Uptown Park, opened a decade ago. A second Hotel Granduca opened in Austin in 2015, spearheaded by son Alex Borlenghi. The Borlenghis en famille celebrated the milestone with an elegant evening that spread from the chic hotel interiors to the verdant pool terrace, all of which hearkens to the couple's deep Italian roots. In a profusion of flowers in a Mediterranean palette from David Brown, chef Enrico Glaudo of the hotel's Ristorante Cavour, served lavish plates of Italian pro- sciutto, Italian cheeses, olives, artichokes, and shrimp risotto, along with Italian wines and Prosecco.
