A Houston-based restaurant that offers fast-casual, locally sourced fare opened doors in the Mueller neighborhood Dec. 21.

On the menu

Dish Society offers a seasonal menu of American classics made using local ingredients. The restaurant’s featured items include the sweet potato stuffed with barbeque brisket, fried chicken and biscuits, shaved Brussel sprout salad and the quinoa-stuffed avocado. The drink menu includes cocktails and mocktails, fresh-pressed juices, beer and Texas wine.

More than 75% of Dish Society’s ingredients are sourced from Texas suppliers, not including the local kombucha, coffee, ice cream and condiments that are offered.

Guests can order at the counter or receive full service at the bar.

Meet the owner

Dish Society is helmed by Austin native University of Texas at Austin graduate Aaron Lyons.

“It’s kind of surreal to come full circle,” Lyons said in a news release. “Being able to share Dish Society with my family and friends is pretty cool. Quite a few people on our team are from Austin or went to UT and also have friends and family they’re excited to share the brand with. But starting in a new market with a concept that’s not a first draft is also a nice feeling. Since we’ve been doing this for almost 10 years, we have the opportunity to make a pretty good impression.”
