Landmark Restaurant Space on Westheimer Will Soon Have a New Tenant — with Major Chef Cred
LONGTIME HOUSTONAINS ARE likely familiar with two bygone icons that are resurfacing this spring: The Warwick, a new concept named after the legendary hotel that is now known as the Zaza, will soon open in the Westheimer space previously home to Houston’s Restaurant.
With a menu developed by Brennan’s and Harold’s alum Antoine Ware, The Warwick will serve Southern-tinged New American fare — the cuisine for which he’s become known since moving to Houston from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Ware will also riff on faves from the classic Houston’s menu, such as its beloved spinach-artichoke dip and Thai noodle salad. Cocktails, courtesy of beverage director Andrew Grala, will also lean classic-with-a-twist.
Designer Nicki Dooms is overhauling the traditional and darker interiors, updating with modern touches like black-and-white tilework, shades of green and gold, more natural light, and custom banquettes. The patios will also receive a facelift.
The restaurant will start off with dinner only, expanding to add lunch and brunch by mid-summer.
