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!
