EIGHT YEARS AGO, the corner of Yale and 11th was just beginning to transform into the foodie haven that it is now — Hando, Trattoria Sofia and Chivos are among the hot spots now calling that intersection home. Pioneering that transformation was Eight Row Flint, a modern ice house with tacos served on housemade tortillas from Agricole Hospitality (Coltivare, Indianola).


Now, Agricole has announced it will be opening a second location of Eight Row Flint this fall at 3501 Harrisburg Blvd., located right on the MetroRail’s Green line, near Equal Parts Brewing and Care Louie.

Founding GM Christina Ramey will oversee the expansion, and chef Marcelo Garcia, who’s been with Agricole for a decade, will run food operations at both locations. “With this being our first concept expansion, it’s a really exciting moment for us,” said Agricole Hospitality owners Morgan Weber, Ryan Pera and Vincent Huynh in a statement. “Nurturing our staff and watching them develop is one of the most rewarding elements of being business owners.”

As one of the first bars in the country to offer Ranch Water, Eight Row Flint will continue to create refreshing cocktails and pour seasonal margaritas; the restaurant group plans to open EZ’s Liquor Lounge next-door to Coltivare on White Oak before the end of the summer as well.

Eight Row Flint's Harrisburg location is slated to open in late Fall.

WITH ITS INAUGURAL set of residents newly moved in, Pelican Builders’ mid-rise condominium Westmore at 2323 W Main Street in Upper Kirby is already seeing the blossoming of a tight-knit community.

And with remaining two-bedroom homes starting at $895,000, it’s a remarkable value for this increasingly pricey area, where condos can easily climb to several million dollars and more.
