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.

Our staff and units are called to serve our community every hour of every day; there are no weekends, holidays, or “days off.” Obviously, the demands of EMS are not for the faint of heart, and we have established a culture of service and accountability that is different than nearly every other organization. Our leadership team sets this culture by exhibiting their passion for this industry daily. Their tireless dedication makes a better experience for our staff when they come to work and for our patients and clients when they call on us to transport their loved ones.
