Another bar on Washington Ave. has hung up the towel, at least that is what Houstonia magazine reported.
“Houstonia reports Winston’s on Washington has shuttered,” Houston Eater’s Jakeisha Wilmore reports. Houstonia magazine reported the closing of the Washington bar, with Eater following the original report. Houstonia gathered alleged confirmation from a website and phone line that has disappeared.
Their social media however is intact, with their last post from March 13, sharing brunch menu items and cheap drink specials. All signs might point to a closing, but one of the co-owners tells The Leader she isn’t sure where the blogs got their information from.
“My name is Jaime Angel and the other owner is Cesar Rocha,” Angel said. “We took over ownership three months ago. We are open. As a matter of fact an event was just posted for this Friday coming up.”
Asia Market has a new home
The Thai kitchen and Asian market on Calvacade announced that they will be relocating and closing kitchen doors on March 31. The new location will be on the Northeast side of Calvacade at 4822 Fulton St.
“It’s time to move on to a more convenient location with better kitchen, seating, parking, free Wi-Fi, beer and wine [which] will be sold,” their website post states. The post thanks for support in their move and gives hope for a June opening of this year.
Pho Binh is coming to the neighborhood
It won’t be too much longer before cravings for the Vietnamese mini-chain pho will be satisfied a little closer to home. Late last year, Sale Sucre – the White Oak French Bistro – closed after two years due to the bistro not making rent payments. Located at 2916 White Oak, the abandoned real estate will now be home to Pho Binh.
Head at the Heights location table will be Daniel Nguyen, owner of the original Pho Binh trailer, according to Eater Houston. Binh tells that he has plans to keep the existing bar to serve wine and beer, but does plan to do some construction and redecorating.
With places like Vietnam Restaurant on 19th street and a few noodle houses around, Nguyen might have concern moving into the neighborhood, but that is just not the case here. Nguyen says he thinks he will fit in just fine.
Gatlin’s BBQ Construction
This past week movement has been spotted at the new Gatlin’s Barbecue location off of Ella Boulevard. The property has been a ghost town after the staking of their large signage, but construction has begun to resurface the future parking lot of the barbecue eatery. Maybe a hopeful sign for an on-schedule opening this summer. Stay tuned.
