Tex-Mex Restaurant Rumors

Will our Tex-Mex joint serve fried eggs on cheese enchiladas?

This morning, the Sidedish Newsletter from My Table Magazine reported that I am a partner in a new Tex-Mex restaurant venture.

Heard on the Street

We had a chat with Bill Floyd today at Reef, and he confirmed that he and chef Bryan Caswell are partnering with former Houston Press restaurant critic Robb Walsh on a new Tex-Mex spot that will go into the Tower Theatre location on Westheimer near Montrose. Permitting has already begun, and the handsome Art Deco design will be kept intact. The great old balcony is also being rebuilt. Floyd says the new as-yet-unnamed spot will seat 300 and be open for lunch and dinner seven days a week. Look for it to open right after January 1.

Thanks to all the well-wishers who have responded to this report. I wish I could have you all over for cheese enchiladas topped with fried eggs  this morning. I haven’t got much to add to the My Table report–we are talking about a restaurant that is scheduled to open 7 months from now! But I promise to write a whole lot about it when there is something interesting to share!

    Now That looks good – I’m Starvin’, Marvin!! If this is somewhere it Can be procured, please do tell… your kitchen’s not big enough to accommodate all of us – yet – LOL.

    Sounds great! Guessing parking would be a bit of a challenge for a 300 seat establishment.

    Awesome news. Can’t wait to try a new neighborhood spot.

    And thanks for saving the architecural integrity. Nicely done.

    Not open for breakfast? 🙁 It’s ok – there’s still Huevos Ranchero at Teotihuacan.

    Those are called Enchiladas Montadas, right?

    And Alison Cook thinks it’s difficult to get in to Noma in Copenhagen. This place is going to be stampeded. I, myself am sooo stoked. Well, why didn’t anyone think of this before??

    Part of me is excited about them saving the Tower Theatre and part of me is sad that they didn’t revamp the old Felix Restaurant down the street (with better parking options I might add) and nearer to their Little Bigs.

    Count my wife and I as two Seattle-ites coming down just to have a taste. Watching carefully…
