Landmark Restaurant Space on Westheimer Will Soon Have a New Tenant — with Major Chef Cred

The Warwick's Pushing Daisies cocktail

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.

NEARLY 500 BLACK-tie-clad Houstonians turned out to toast the late billionaire-philanthropist Fayez Sarofim, who notably contributed tens of millions to the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, at the MFAH’s annual Grand Gala Ball. This year, the event honored Sarofim’s legacy and that of his eponymous foundation, and celebrated the continuance of the family’s generosity, as several of the Sarofims were in attendance.
