Local restaurant Dumpling Haus is no longer open at The Shops at Sawyer Yards. The eatery closed its doors Wednesday... As for the restaurant's replacement, a new tenant has signed on. Houston Chronicle reports an Asian restaurant is soon taking over the unit at 2313 Edwards St, Suite 180.


https://www.houstonchronicle.com/food-culture/restaurants-bars/article/dumpling-haus-restaurant-houston-closing-18390425.php



An one story occupancy inspection permit was filed today for 2313 Edwards St, Suite 180. Also filed, a certificate of occupancy permit.

The permit indicates it's for a "NC/OCC/restaurant 1-1-2-b-b '12 IBC/1,600 sq ft/#17051392."

The permit appears to be filed by Sino Yan Hospitality, a new restaurant group from chef Andrew Musico. It's likely the permit is for a brick-and-mortar location of Musico's The Fattest Cow or his other concept, Chikahan.

Dumpling Haus previously occupied the unit at The Shops at Sawyer Yards.

According to Chikahan's website, the restaurant will be located in The Shops at Sawyer Yards. It's replacing Dumpling Haus at 2313 Edwards St, Ste 180.

Chikahan is a Filipino-inspired restaurant from chef Andrew Musico's Sino Yan Hospitality.

"Known for New England-style lobster rolls and fried clam strips, Houston’s Maine-ly Sandwiches is finally opening a second location, but this isn’t the first time they’ve tried to expand.

There is so much wrong with this article from Chron.com. 

First, the author acknowledges Maine-ly Sandwiches operated other restaurants, noting owner Buddy Charity, "attempted to expand to Greenspoint and Cy-Fair, but those closed as well." Maine-ly Sandwiches' original location on South Shepherd Dr is also mentioned. Still, Chron.com reports this as the restaurant's second location. It's not. There were other locations not mentioned that Maine-ly Sandwiches opened.

Second of all, the article is written in a way that makes it seems Maine-ly Sandwiches is now only opening its location at The Shops at Sawyer Yards. It's misleading. The restaurant has been open for months. Yet there is no mention of it in the article.

So are there two locations now, or three?  Your response doesn't add clarity.  If there are currently two locations, then saying "second" location is correct.  Just because it's not the second ever location does not mean it's not a second location.  When McDonald's opens it's 100,000th location, it counts active locations, not every location that has ever opened and closed.

The second criticism is inconsequential.  It's a feature article, not breaking news. They get written ahead of time, and are bumped or postponed — sometimes repeatedly — by more interesting content.  Sometimes a features reporter will write a bunch of stories all at once and they get scheduled to run in the future to cover times when they're on vacation or otherwise unavailable.  It's called "evergreen."

Overall, "so much" nitpicking about nothing.

Nitpicking about nothing, huh? That's rich coming from a guy who gripes about almost everything in  nearly every topic. And it's usually over the most absurd things.

And if I'm not mistaken, you have nitpicked about errors in Houston Chronicle and Chron.com articles too. So, pot meet kettle.

My point was valid and was made clear enough. The article, like a number of articles from the Chronicle and its paywall-free site, had errors pertaining to the business discussed.

A restaurant called the Stand. Found one called Stand that serves American Classics from California, not sure if this will be the same.

What a great find, @hindesky. Thanks for posting.

@Urbannizer @Triton or other mods, 2500 Summer St is part of the Sawyer Yards campus. Hopefully, you all will consider merging this with the existing topic for Sawyer Yards where other businesses at the same address are discussed there:

Buffalo Bayou Brewing Company is no longer operating at Sawyer Yards.

A lockout notice is posted on the grounds of the local brewery. In a CultureMap article published today, the lockout is due to "non-payment of rent."  

Buffalo Bayou Brewing Company operated at 2101 Summer St.

 

Additional details from the article:

Sawyer Yards owner Jon Deal served Buffalo Bayou CEO William McLucas with a notice of default at noon. Via that document, he terminated the brewery’s lease on its building at 2101 Summer St.

Although The Stand's listed address on the architectural barriers project filing is 2500 Summer St, Suite 1110-A, that may not be accurate.

As @hindesky points out in his above post, Triple Tap Ventures is located at that address. The company is the Texas licensee of the California-based casual restaurant chain. However, The Stand may not be leasing a unit on the Sawyer Yards campus.

More than likely, The Stand will be one of the new additions to Lower Heights District. Yes, the shopping center is listed on the filing, but the address is not associated with Lower Heights District.

Buffalo Bayou Brewing's CEO claims the brewery's closure at Sawyer Yards is temporary. The claim was made in recent statements to the public and press.  The brewery operated at 2101 Summer St until a few days ago.


In response to the closure, The Deal Company noted the following to Houston Chronicle yesterday:

“There were so many stories and promises and things that just didn’t materialize that we didn’t see the possibility of a workout,” said Deal, adding that he had encouraged McLucas to gather a group of investors with turnaround experience. “We were happy to sit down and listen, but we haven’t heard back from him.”

Does anyone have further insight regarding Gulf Coast Distillers' plans in Sawyer Yards? I'm assuming the distillery is opening here based on the occupancy permits posted above.
