This thread was originally created December 29, 2015. I'm reposting / reupping this because this post and other content from me are no longer available on the forum due to a mod removing my account and its content in "error"  (supposedly).  An archive link  of the thread before its deletion is here.


Mods, please don't move this to the Heights forum where all of my Washington Corridor posts were moved to. Mods, also don't sneak and move this thread and all the others for Washington Corridor, Oak Forest, Garden Oaks, and Independence Heights to the Heights forum once all the previous content is reposted as y'all have done in the last two weeks and continue to do. This is NOT in the Heights and it's not part of the Greater Heights area in any way. This is in the Washington Corridor area, an area that as suggested and advocated for previously needs its own forum because there is lots of development happening here, much spurred by the Sawyer Yards and Buffalo Heights developments. That in itself usually merits the creation for a new neighborhood forum. Until then, posts for those neighborhoods should remain in the forum for "Other Neighbohoods" has is done with other threads that don't have a dedicated neighborhood or area of town forum.Thanks.






Swamplot is reporting that the old Drake nightclub at 1902 Washington Ave (was also The Gatsby and The Mark in recent years, was also Olive's Drug Store in late 1800's or early 1900's) is transforming into a retail space. One of the proposed tenants seem to include Tacodeli out of Austin.

Also included in the center according the marketing brochure is a high end barbershop, brewpub and ramen restaurant.




From Swamplot:

Yet another fast-casual semi-gourmet taco chain from north of town appears to be spreading saucy tendrils into the 610 Loop — Austin-based Tacodeli, which announced intent to expand to Houston and Dallas last year, is now appearing in renderings and marketing plans of Lovett Commercial’s site at 1902 Washington Ave., across the street from upscale cocktail bar Julep and just west of cow-to-table butcher shop and steakhouse B&B Butchers. Tacodeli will be jostling against Torchy’s Tacos (also an Austin export), Fuzzy’s Taco’s (a Dallas chain currently working its way down through the north Houston ‘burbs to West Gray and Post Oak), and Velvet Taco (another Dallas chain) in the rush to claim territory in the local tacoscape, already thick with native Hous-Tex-Mex options.

Tacodeli’s new spot is the former home of once-chandeliered nightclub The Drake, now the site of several elaborate grafitti murals. The Drake faced scrutiny in 2012 from Parroquia de San Esteban, a Catholic church located immediately west across White St., for allegedly generating the scandalous trash appearing on the church’s property, including beer bottles, condoms, dirty needles, and obscene fliers.

Tacodeli is really really good. Better than Torchy's and Velvet in my opinion (haven't had Fuzzy before). Definitely very excited about this one. Now I have basically no reason to go to Austin anymore now that this, Torchy's, Hopdoddy, and Pluckers are here.

Did some digging on my own and came across this job posting:

We are searching for a Head Brewer to join the team as an integral part of establishing and growing Platypus Brewing, a new brewery and tap room in the historic Houston Heights planned to open mid-2016 (with earlier on-boarding of the Head Brewer). This is a key leadership role for an experienced brewer to join this exciting new brand and take ownership for driving innovation and growth. We have the location, the funding and the business experience – we just need you!

Platypus Brewing aims to create a powerful brand based on quality hand crafted beer which will complement and improve the emerging craft beer industry in Houston. Platypus Brewing will be a destination for people who enjoy hand crafted beer in a distinctly Australian atmosphere.

More on Platypus Brewing opening at the redeveloped property on Washington Avenue:

 


From Eater Houston:


 

Platypus Brewing Will Bring Australian-Style Beers To Houston This Summer


Most Texans’ notion of Australian-style beer comes from those terrible Foster’s commercials, but a new brewpub coming to Houston could totally revolutionize your idea of the land down under’s beer scene.

Platypus Brewing, an Australian-style brewpub, will open at 1902 Washington Avenue in the coming months. The brewpub will feature house-brewed beers made with “the very best Australian, U.S. and European hops.” Those beers – no word yet on exactly what styles will be on offer – will be served in an adjacent taproom, which will also serve food crafted from “quality, local Texan ingredients.”

...Platypus Brewing has plans to open its doors at some point in Summer 2016.

I spent two weeks in Australia in December and didn't see a single Foster's anywhere.  Conspiracy.  I'm starting to think that Foster's isn't even really Australian for beer.

Doubt it but I'm interested to see if the brewpub will be completed by the summer. I have my doubts because there's a lot of work to be done in that warehouse.

Tacodeli has confirmed that it is opening at 1902 Washington Avenue:




From Eater Houston:

 

Rumors have swirled for at least a year about Tacodeli’s imminent arrival in Houston, and an announcement today confirms that the Austin-based taqueria will open its first Houston location at 1902 Washington Ave later this year.

 

For the uninitiated, Tacodeli, founded in 1999, is a fave among Austinites thanks to its scratch-made ingredients and super fast service. Many of the restaurant’s offerings are organic and locally-sourced, in addition to a solid menu of vegan and vegetarian options. Vegan tacos can be hard to come by in H-Town, but that will all soon change with the arrival of Tacodeli.

 

"I've been a huge fan of the Houston restaurant scene since I first started visiting the city back in the 80's! It is very exciting to know that we will finally be able to sling tacos in a city with some serious culinary heritage,” co-founder Roberto Espinosa said in a statement. "We are especially excited to be opening in a unique part of the city along Washington Avenue with great neighbors such as B&B Butchers, Julep, and soon-to-open Platypus Brewing in our building."

 

Tacodeli is currently planning for a Fall 2016 opening. Stay tuned for more details on its arrival.


http://houston.eater.com/2016/5/16/11683416/austin-tacodeli-is-headed-to-houston





From CultureMap :


Tacodeli, the popular Austin-based taco joint, has finally acknowledged that the rumors are true. It will open its first Houston location on Washington Avenue this fall. 

As noted above, Tacodeli will join Washington Avenue's thriving taco scene. In addition to traditional favorites like Laredo Taqueria and Tex-Mex staples like Molina's and El Tiempo, the area has recently added Dallas import Velvet Taco and will soon see the reborn brick and mortar location of La Macro. Still, Tacodeli's track record of success in Austin's competitive scene argues that it will do well in Houston, too.

From Swamplot: 

Platypus and Friends Now Decorating Washington Ave Nesting Sites

Australo-Texan Platypus Brewing has been not-so-secretly secreting away a set of fermentation tanks in the back of the reforming nightclub complex at 1902 Washington Ave (at the corner with Silver St.). The brewpub is readying the northernmost segment of the structure; a tree-lined patio is planned at the corner of Silver and Center streets.

A permit to build out a barber shop called In the Black, shown above in suite E of the compound,was issued in April; per Lovett’s plans the shop looks to be facing Silver through at least one of the new and used holes between Platypus and the first Houston outpost of Austin taco colonist Tacodeli:

...The Washington-facing facade of Tacodeli is getting some work as well, and another corner patio is planned right at Washington and Silver

Here’s the nextdoor space previously marked up as a ramen shop — Lovett now labels the spot as Goen Japanese Ramen, and  a restaurant buildout permit was issued to Hiroshi Abe in April. The framework for the glassy front shown in previous renderings of the site seems to be in place

Google turns up a Goen Japanese Ramen with 2 locations in the Philipines.


Not related I think.



From In the Know Houston:


 

Hold on to your chopsticks, noodle obsessives. Another ramen shop is on the way to Washington Avenue.

 

Newcomer Goen is opening soon at 1902 Washington Avenue. It will be the third ramen restaurant along the Washington Corridor, joining late night favorite Ninja Ramen and Seattle-based Samurai Noodle.
 

Real estate blog Swamplot first got wind of the new noodle offering after renderings for the Old Sixth Ward space surfaced last year. At the time, the only other indicator that pointed towards a noodle house was a site plan listing a nameless ramen eatery. However, recently updated site plans from Houston-based developer Lovett Commercial shows the name of the forthcoming restaurant as Goen.
 

Attempts to contact Goen for further details have been unsuccessful. Nevertheless, the restaurant’s website provides some hints.
 

According to the site, Goen will serve ramen and authentic Japanese fare, highlighting ingredients native to Japan as well as local and seasonal. The menu will include modern sushi and offer omakases prepared by Tokyo chefs specially trained in sushi. Additionally, there will be a dessert program under the direction of a purported renowned Japanese pastry chef.
 

Goen is one of three new restaurants opening at 1902 Washington Avenue, which sits next to B&B Butchers and across the street from bourbon bar Julep and soon-to-open Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken. Joining the ramen shop is Austin-based Tacodeli and Australian brewpub Platypus Brewing.
 

Earlier this year, Austin-based Tacodeli confirmed their entry into the Houston market after announcing expansion plans in 2014. Platypus Brewing will serve a wide range of Aussie suds including selections from their in-house brewery.
 

Look for Platypus Brewing to open later this year and Tacodeli in early 2017. Although there has been no response from Goen to requests for additional information, plus no visible signs of construction yet, expect to slurp steaming bowls of the Japanese noodle soup sometime next year.

Replacing Kukuri at 1902 Washington Ave will be anover Japanese restaurant.



From Eater Houston:



After shuttering its Rice Village outpost in 2016, it looks as if beloved Houston sushi purveyor Kubo’s is making a comeback inside the loop.

New tax filings with the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts’ office indicate that Kubo’s will open a second location at 1902 Washington Avenue, taking over the space formerly occupied by another sushi restaurant, Kukuri, which suddenly closed its doors after about six months in business. Way back in 2016, the Houston Press reported rumors that Kubo’s would be relocating to Washington Avenue instead of closing. That didn’t happen immediately after the shutter, but definitely appears to be in the works now.

Details on the new menu are not available at present, but diners should perhaps expect a broader range of Japanese cuisine. The name registered with the Comptroller’s office for the new Washington Avenue restaurant is is Kubo’s Sushi & Washoku, a word that translates to “the food of Japan.”

Last year, Eater Houston reported on the new tenant moving into the unit last occupied by Kubo's Sushi & Washoku at 1902 Washington Ave, Suite C. The tenant is a restaurant from the team behind Handies Douzo and Kokoro restaurants.

At the time of the published article, the working name for the restaurant was Fuku. There was an Instagram for the restaurant either as Fukuhtx or Fukuhouston However, the name was changed shortly thereafter to Aiko and the Instagram changed to 1902Washingtonrestaurant or something along those lines.

I brought this to Eater Houston's attention, but they decided not to inform their readers of the possible new name. 

It seems plans are still in motion for the restaurant and the name is Aiko. Recent building permits and sales tax permits filings indicate this. Additionally, the Instagram for the restaurant changed it's handle once again to reflect the official name.
