  1. Spring Street Beer & Wine Garden closed June 19th. The bar & grill was located in the First Ward at 1920 Houston Ave. Taking over the space are the operators behind Pour Behavior and Lincoln Bar The new owners also operate Be More Pacific restaurant, Conservatory (the forthcoming franchised location at 55West), and operate a bar at Understory. The name of the new business will be announced in July.
  2. There is an Instagram account for Sushi by the Heights, a restaurant opening soon at 1111 Studewood St, Ste B. One post contains visuals of the restaurant's proposed design. Instagram: @sushibytheheights
  3. The name of the business taking over the former Indika restaurant space at 516 Westheimer has changed again. Instead of Black Orchid, it's now Crave. The concept is the same: restaurant and club/lounge, what's also been coined as "vibe dining" (i.e. Turkey Leg Hut, Taste, Bar 5015, Kiss, Parma, Lost & Found, Quotes, and Kamp)
  4. This is old news, but since no one posted an update in the thread about this: Mellow Mushroom closed its Houston location in the Heights (1919 N Shepherd Dr, Suite A) in 2021. Moving into the unit is local pizzeria Crust Pizza Co. The restaurant specializes in Chicago-style tavern pizzas (thin crust). CultureMap reported this last November: "Suburban favorite Crust Pizza Co. has leased the former Mellow Mushroom space at 1919 N. Shepherd Dr. in the Heights for a new location..." "The interior design calls for a full remodel with six, 80-inch TVs in the bar along with other TVs..." https://houston.culturemap.com/news/restaurants-bars/11-15-21-crust-pizza-co-new-location-the-heights-n-shepherd-drive/ Crust Pizza Co. initially anticipated a spring 2022 arrival, but that's come and gone. It's likely this could open by late summer or early fall of this year.
  5. A correction: The name of the dessert shop from Don Bowie (Taste and Rare restaurants) is pronounced Sugar Fork (may also be spelled that way, though the business' social media accounts spell it as Sugar Frk. This is opening soon at Post Midtown Square, 314 Gray St. The unit was previously home to Fluff Bake Bar before its relocation to the Heights.
  6. It looks as if Goode Company is opening its Goode Co. Kitchen & Cantina restaurant concept at 1801 Yale St, the site that previously Down House. A few days ago, the restaurant was approved for a sign permit from the city. The name listed for the signage is Goode Co. Kitchen & Cantina. Also there is a Google Maps listing for Goode Co. Kitchen & Cantina at 1801 Yale St that is claimed and managed by Goode Company. https://goo.gl/maps/3Nuw6s9p53hgAVam9
  7. From yesterday's Openings & Closings round-up on Houston Press: "Sonoma Wine Bar, 1223 W. 34th, is shooting to open at The Stomping Grounds in Garden Oaks in December 2022...In an email to the Houston Press [owner Farrah Cauley] said, "My vision for Stomping Grounds is modern, sophisticated and warm with lots of natural light and multiple patios." https://www.houstonpress.com/restaurants/sonomas-new-plans-soto-is-back-stm-closes-13615525 Non-popup ads link: https://www.houstonpress.com/houston/Print?oid=13615525
  8. @hindesky There is an existing topic for this property:
  9. Marketing materials for 1735 Westheimer Rd show surrounding businesses including the forthcoming wine bar and tapas restaurant chain Barcelona at 1731 Westheimer. The map indicates it's opening Fall 2022. It's possible the opening will be much later like early 2023 or early spring 2023.
  10. Marketing materials for 1735 Westheimer Rd show surrounding businesses including the forthcoming Montrose outpost of Jeni's Splendid Ice at 1719 Westheimer. The map indicates it's opening Summer 2022, but it probably won't open until fall 2022 or early 2023.
  11. Updated mock-up of the Salty and site plan for 1658 Westheimer Rd. Architectural drawings show a walk-up counter for the Salty for customers to place to-go orders.
  12. Taste (Taste Bar + Kitchen) may be moving from 3015 Bagby. The house sitting on the property is known as the Sterling House. I think it's moving into Local Foods former ground floor space in the Byrd Building. Taste is (or was) being sued by its landlord Amir Ansari for a host of things including and was locked out briefly earlier this year, according to documents submitted to Harris County court (Bowie is also being sued by investors of Rare, the steakhouse and lounge on Washington Avenue). The documents also disclosed Bowie's plan to relocate Taste. Documents from the lawsuit detailed conversations between Bowie and Ansari for a possible new concept at 3015 Bagby in place of Taste (this was prior to the lawsuit). Bowie was contemplating a lounge and hookah bar concept with a limited menu of Taste favorites. However, Ansari claims in the suit that he was fielding interest from other prospective tenants. So, I guess we'll find out what's replacing Taste soon. The lawsuit (and the Rare lawsuit) are definitely eye-opening.
  13. I haven't been downtown in awhile, so I don't know when Local Foods closed its downtown outpost at 420 Main St. It was closed during the height of the pandemic in 2020 with plans to reopen in 2021, but I don't know if that happened or not. Moving into Local Foods former ground floor space in the Byrd Building is neo-soul/Southern restaurant Taste (Taste Bar + Kitchen / Taste Kitchen + Bar). I think the restaurant from Don Bowie is relocating from Midtown, 3015 Bagby St (former Sterling House). Taste is (or was) being sued by its landlord Amir Ansari for a host of things and was locked out briefly earlier this year, according to documents submitted to Harris County court (Bowie is also being sued by investors of Rare, the steakhouse and lounge on Washington Avenue). The documents also disclosed Bowie's plan to relocate Taste.
  14. A preliminary site plan for Canopy on Washington, Oxberry Group's mixed-use at 3800 Washington Avenue. According to the site plan, Primeway Credit Union is staying on as a tenant. https://www.crexi.com/lease/properties/414119/california-canopy-washington Brochure: https://api-lease.crexi.com/assets/414119/flyer
  15. It looks like gym and fitness center chain Facet Seven is leasing a unit at the Docks at Timbergrove, the retail development from Ancoran at 2505 W 11th St. https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/2505-W-11th-St-Houston-TX/23271056 https://images1.loopnet.com/d2/O3H6_IKiGGlyGCpy42sH6ZsrF6YQ_DIA0Fuxkk-vd_o/11th Street Mixed Use Flyer Current.pdf
