Wine bar to be the new resident of Heights Mercantile
Postino WineCafe, a Phoenix based wine bar, will make home its first Texas location at the Heights Mercantile this spring. The repurposed 1940s warehouse at the corner of Yale and 7th Street, where Pappas Restaurants use to be, is where Postino will settle in, according to Eater Houston.
Brent Karlicek, the Advanced Sommelier, will be curating the menu, which will include thirty wines and local brews at the cost of $5 each between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m.
The official opening date has yet to be announced. Postino’s hours will be 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. from Monday to Thursday, until midnight on Fridays, and 9 a.m. to 12 a.m. on Saturdays at 642 Yale.
Esther’s Cajun opens second location
Esther’s Cajun Café just opened its second location at 1102 Pinemont A1, after doing so well at the first location on Yale St.
For now, the Yale St. location has a larger menu, with the Pinemont location starting off with a smaller smaller spread of menu items like peppered steak, garlic baked chicken, and smothered pork chops. Read the whole story as reported by The Leader.
Update: Local Foods now open in the Heights
Last week it was reported that Local Foods would soon open, and it finally has!
The owner and chef-partner of Local Foods, Benjy Levit and Dylan Murray, said their growing sandwich shop will open its fifth location at the Heights Mercantile, as reported by CultureMap. For this location Levit had in mind a gathering spot for the neighborhood. A diner in a sense, but with a large amount of counter seating. Thirty-five seats will wrap the kitchen so that people can watch their food being prepared, and it will have primarily booth seating.
They will be using one menu for the entire day, with a mix of breakfast items, sandwiches, and hot entrees available every day of the week from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.
