Sambrooks—the company behind other Houston-area restaurants such as The Pit Room, 1751 Sea and Bar, and Candente—has plans to deliver a concept that will include a dining room and bar/lounge area that seats 110 as well as a covered patio with an outdoor bar and lounge that seats an additional 75 people, according to a July 29 press release. The eatery will be located in a historic building at 3201 Allen Parkway, Ste. E110, Houston, across from The Gordy, a new theater venue operated by Stages Theatre.
The building originally served as the Star Engraving Co. Building and has also been home to the Houston Children's Museum and Stages Theatre, prior to the construction of The Gordy. Random Capital recently redeveloped the site.
“We will be combining our skills in smoking and wood fire grilling from The Pit Room and Candente with our chef-driven experience from 1751 Sea & Bar,” owner Michael Sambrooks said in a statement.
The menu will feature items diners would expect from a traditional steakhouse, prepared with live-fire techniques, while also offering a modern, small-plate options.
Hospitality interior design firm AvroKO will lead design efforts alongside local architect Kevin Tietz, of Phillip Ewald Architecture.
The new restaurant will share access with Stages Theatre to a 300-car parking garage.
An opening date has not been announced.
