  1. Yep you are right @mkultra25🍦

     

    and edited to say that Urbe is open TODAY! For now it is counter service only and open m-f 8am - 3pm and weekends 10a - 3pm.

    I am hoping for late night hours eventually but who knows.

    and long story short i was on my way there this morning and this driver on post oak blvd was driving crazy and recklessly and after 3 instances of them showing proof of needing to retake their drivers license course (and to learn common courtesy), it turns out they work at dang URBE!!! (i found this out after they decided to slam on their breaks in front of me in order to back up and then back up into a parking space on the side of URBE...i honked so he wouldn't back into me and he proceeds to roll down his window to start screaming at me...) I said hey you work at URBE?! I was just about to go eat here and will let them know how you drive to work. Drive safer! 

    I decided not to eat there after all this morning... 👹

  2. FYI: i rode my bike by Van Leeuwen Ice Cream this past friday night and it was OPEN! :) 

    however dang i was mislead originally...the ice cream shop ONLY takes up the small space next door to Crave Cupcakes! a construction worker originally said they were doing demolition on all 3 spaces for this but nope, the last 2 spaces next to the animal circle park are going to be an independent space! (I hope this isn't where Postino is going and instead they take over the old Tasting Room spot as i have mentioned previously...

    we shall see...

    (oh, and rode my bike by sat and sun and the ice cream shop had a line out the door of about 12 to 20 each time!)

  3. wowsa! i haven't been keeping up with this thread but cannot believe the changes going on...and that plaza, although strange, holds some good memories like when my best friends played there for 1999/2000 new years eve when we knew we were all going to die immediately after the computers and phone were going to blow up 🤪

    speaking of my best friends...they are actually headlining this at Bayou Music Center 10/30/21 although to be honest i wish it was going to be at the new 713/POST!:

  4. great photo! (as usual) :) ...not shown though is either a covered eating area or a drive thru for Chop Shop! I haven't driven by close enough (or slow enough) to be able to tell haha! I agree this end of the plaza underwent a really great transformation!

  6. this is amazing news...i have stayed at Hotel Saint Cecilia before and man that place is amazing and so darn cool! Jake Gyllenhaal was staying there at the same time btw! 

    anyway...don't know if you all remember but originally these owners were looking at the land where Cane's Chicken Montrose is now but when the economy went down, so did their plans. I am so excited they have decided to open up a Houston hotel after all, as they are one of the best at small boutique hotels with exceptional service.

  7. more info about Urbe that i am betting opens next month!

     

    https://houston.eater.com/2021/7/29/22598466/urbe-houston-chef-hugo-ortega-restaurant-opening-street-food

    An update posted to Uptown Park’s website indicates that it will be an all-day eatery, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, plus a case packed with pastries, a full bar and coffee menu, and a “robust to-go program.” Hashtags on the original Facebook post offer a touch more insight into the dishes one might expect — including “trompo” and “barbacoa.”

     

    count me in 😋

  8. actually really liked that location and do hope they find another home in uptown...and soon! 

    but this even more makes me think that this whole area (jenni's noodles to container store) is on its way out and a new development is on it's way! (i wonder if everyone's lease ends by 2021/2022?)

    I don't think it takes away from the project. I do think it takes away from the street. Or the pedestrian experience of the street.

     

    ETA: Or takes away from what could have been. I'm not saying the project in any way takes away anything from Westheimer.

    yeah i get it for sure! one thing i love about Velvet Taco across the street is sitting on the street facing patio area watching the world go by!

    From today's Houston Chronicle.....

     

    Idle Hands leased 4,711 square feet at the former Rosemont bar location at Montrose Collective, 910 Westheimer, for a Houston location. The development is a project by Radom Capital and was represented by Brittney Austin and Linda Rubiola of Shop Cos. Hannah Tosch, Wade Greene and Chris Nash of Colliers represented the tenant. Idle Hands, also in Austin, is a partnership of Matt Wolski and Andrew Hunter. The Montrose location will provide tropical craft cocktails, a full kitchen with roof deck/patio seating and live music upon opening this fall, according to Colliers.

     

    uh...yes please...haha! (love this movie!)

  11. WHOA! Love it! I am surprised they didn't decide to make this a 2 story at least but wow love the design and look...i guess they could always build out something in the middle of the entire lot like the jewel box at Galleria if needed

    Again, A+ and thank you @asubrtfor the awesome info and renderings!

  13. 2131-2511 Post Oak Blvd Post Oak Shopping Center 

    honestly i am confused as to which thread to put this in since some of this thread also talks about the old Luby's location shopping center, but went to Dick's today on Post Oak and was told that this store is indeed relocating to Meyerland Plaza no later than March 2022! That means with Kenny and Ziggy's moving and Dick's i would think it is inevitable that this plaza closes next year!
