Dish Society is coming inside the loop. The casual, farm-to-table-inspired neighborhood restaurant with locations in Tanglewood and Katy announced Thursday that it will open its fourth Houston-area location in the mixed-use development known as Heights Central Station, formerly the Heights Post Office, at 11th Street and Yale (across the street from CultureMap Tastemaker Awards Bar of the Year Eight Row Flint).
"The Heights was a no-brainer for us," said Dish Society founder Aaron Lyons in a statement. "The area is blowing up and is full of our core demographic."
Lyons will cater to that demographic — young professionals and families with an interest in healthy eating —by expanding the restaurant's bar program and craft beer offerings. A 1,000-square-foot patio will feature games like shuffleboard, foosball, and darts. Best of all, the restaurant will have 60 parking spaces as well as offsite parking.
"We want to be your neighborhood hangout," Lyons added. "Come with your friends, bring your kids, bring your dogs. Just come hang out."
The Heights location is expected to open in fall 2018. Dish Society's third location in the Memorial Green development will open this summer.
Dish Society will join a Heights dining scene that has already seen massive growth in the past couple of years. Since January, newcomers like Presidio, Field & Tides, and Helen in the Heights have made a splash. This summer will bring new locations for established concepts like Melange Creperie, Bernie's Burger Bus, and Snooze: An AM Eatery. All these new arrivals should ensure the neighborhood maintains its status as Houston's hottest dining neighborhood.
