If you are thinking of making a quick stop by Gatlin’s BBQ’s new location at 3510 Ella Blvd, between Garden Oaks and Oak Forest, you’ll have lots of company! The crowds are big and favorite items are quick to disappear. This new location is proving to be a fan favorite. We are so happy to have some of Houston’s finest BBQ right around the corner!
Another recent restaurant opening is Southern Goods in The Heights at 623 W. 19th. Very small, intimate bar/restaurant with a new twist on Southern cuisine. At this point, the menu is still limited. We gave it a try in the first few days and will probably wait a month or so to try it again.
Next up is KA Sushi, 1901 N. Shepherd. The restaurant has a cool contemporary vibe. Lots of anticipation for a Sushi restaurant in the neighborhood so there will be a wait list for a while. Can’t wait to try it though. Food selections have been earning praise on YELP.
On a sad note, Lilo and Ella closed it’s doors recently. The restaurant had been a favorite for me. It was so nice to have something unique and interesting nearby. Hopefully we will see chef Kevin Nadari open a new concept in the near future.
