I would hope that folks take to the streets with pitchforks and torches when and if the idea of redeveloping the Dinner Bell ever gains any traction.

Some nice brickwork is done, and they are starting to build a cinder block wall in the front:

After not much visible change for a while, when I last went to Frank's about a week ago I noticed it was finally coming along, so there's still hope. Still didn't seem to be anywhere near opening, though.

Originally posted by crockpotandgravel, April 8, 2017 in the thread for Frank's Backyard | 413 Travis St | Downtown. From Crain's last summer on Frank's Backyard at 413 Travis: Frank’s Pizza knows the key to a person’s heart is a slice of good, cheap pizza. The New York-style pizza joint at 417 Travis St. in downtown Houston will soon have an outdoor patio and bar to go along with that pie once Frank’s Backyard opens next door. General Manager Cody Hastings — also son of the owners — said he hopes Frank’s Backyard will be open and operating smoothly before 2017 hits. “We want to be up and ready with all the kinks ironed out before the Super Bowl,” Hastings said. “That whole week will be amazing for everyone in Houston.” The backyard will feature an outdoor patio in front of the bar, an indoor seating area and a second-floor screened-in patio for visitors with 35 to 45 taps. “It’s going to be beer- and bourbon-driven with a little bit of everything,” Hastings said. Although Backyard has a kitchen, Hastings said the owners didn’t want to take away from Frank’s Pizza. Hungry customers at the bar will have three kiosks where they can order pizza from next door and have it brought over. As always, when it comes to Frank’s, expect no pretenses, he said. “Frank’s is known for being cheap, fast and super casual and the bar will be the exact same way,” Hastings said. “The outdoor feel will be as much about the look and feel of having a beer and hanging out with your friends.” Although exact hours haven’t been set yet, they will likely mirror the late night hours of Frank’s Pizza, which is open until 3 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. http://houston.crains.com/article/franks-hopes-add-outdoor-patio-bar-time-super-bowl

Quite a lot of UofH students come to this area for knick knacks and I'm sure are driving the local economy here. I can see this development being really successful, especially if they have a coffee shop here. Coral Sword is usually packed full of UofH students right now so any relief in another coffee shop would be welcome for sure.

Really looking forward to this project.

Originally posted by crock, August 29, 2019 in the thread for Hass Center | 5815 Gulf Freeway | Idylwood. this area is brutal. basically all concrete and car exhaust, no shade whatsoever. everytime I have to run to that walmart i feel like i'm in the most inhumane part of late capitalism. really surprised someone would spend the money on this to re-develop, and not, say, the dinner bell cafeteria.
