A London- and European-inspired restaurant is preparing to open its doors in Montrose. The Marigold Club will open June 25, providing classic French-inspired cuisine reimagined through the lens of London dining clubs.

The eatery will be taking over the former space of Goodnight Charlie's, which closed during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Goodnight Hospitality, which operated Goodnight Charlie's, will also run The Marigold Club. A public relations representative said in an email that the "posh oasis" will be membership free.

Meet the chef

Chef Austin Waiter, the former executive chef of Houston's restaurant Tony's, will develop the concept's menu. Highlights include a Kaluga caviar sandwich; "fish not chips," made with fried shellfish and green beans served with a citrus yogurt; and roasted lamb loin served on a bed of romesco with kalamata olives.

“Dining at The Marigold Club is going to be unlike any other experience in Houston,” Waiter said in a news release. “Guests will get to experience little pieces of all my favorite parts of London sprinkled throughout the menu, while enjoying an ice cold martini paired with a killer raw bar program that utilizes seafood our team researched and sourced fresh from the bays of the East Coast.”

An ice cream sundae cart will allow diners to customize ice cream options such as chai tea, cream or chocolate, with an assortment of toppings.
