Bellagreen, the food brand featuring chef-inspired salads, burgers, pasta, tacos, desserts, wine and more, will be bringing its sixth Houston-area location to the Galleria area.

The eatery will open its very first carryout and delivery prototype at 5018 San Felipe St., Houston, on Aug. 2, the eatery confirmed in a June 22 news release.


This limited-footprint model will allow guests to pick up Bellagreen’s cuisine through an on-the-go experience, accepting individual and catering orders placed directly through the eatery’s website, by phone and in store. The new restaurant will also deliver direct orders during peak lunch and dinner hours with its own drivers, offering customers a less expensive and faster experience compared to third-party delivery apps, according to the news release.

“We are thrilled to expand in our home market of Houston, giving the community another convenient way to make life more beautiful with our handcrafted American bistro favorites,” Bellagreen CEO Jason Morgan said in the news release. “As a best-in-class brand, we are always working to enhance our guests’ experience. We are catering to a new environment where consumers crave convenience, so we are building our first carry out- and delivery-only prototype to meet this need, and beyond. With this new model, guests can expect to enjoy everything that makes Bellagreen special—chef-prepared meals, eco-friendly practices, and the chance to make beautiful memories—at home.”

The new restaurant will offer scratch-made appetizers, soups, salads, sandwiches, tacos, burgers, pasta and desserts with options for guests with dietary restrictions, including gluten free, dairy free, vegan and vegetarian, and a menu that offers Best Aquaculture Practices-certified seafood and locally sourced Texas Angus beef. www.bellagreen.com
