Two New Adair Concepts Restaurants Coming to West U

THE WEST U shopping center Plaza in the Park, located near the intersection of Buffalo Speedway and Bissonnet, has been undergoing renovations throughout the fall. The latest development? Two new restaurants will soon be added to the mix.

Both are in the Adair Concepts portfolio, co-owned and operated by Nick Adair, who is himself a West U resident. Los Tios, the nearly 50-year-old Tex-Mex fave purchased by the Adair family a while back, will open its sixth area location, featuring interiors by Aaron Rambo. And Uptown’s beloved Adair Kitchen will finally open a second location at Plaza in the Park.

“West University is where Adair Concepts was born in 1988 with the opening of Skeeters Mesquite Grill,” said Adair in a statement. “We can’t wait to provide additional welcoming neighborhood gathering places for local foodies and families.”

The overhaul of the shopping center is spearheaded by Edens, the development group behind Uptown Park’s recent facelift. Similar to that center’s makeover, the one at Plaza in the Park includes enhanced walkability, landscaping and outdoor seating.
