One of the few restaurants in the Texas Medical Center has closed for remodeling, but this time that phrase isn't a euphemism to mask a permanent closure. 

After 15 years of operations, Trevisio, the restaurant and event space that's owned by the Texas Medical Center and operated by the H-Town Restaurant Group (Hugo's, Caracol, and Backstreet Cafe), announced on Friday that it is going under the knife for a much needed facelift. The restaurant ceased service on Thursday but will remain open for private events through the end of the May.

While the crescent-shaped floor plan and dramatic views from atop the John P. McGovern Commons will remain, the restaurant will sport a much different look when it reopens in October. The new lobby will feature marble walls and floors with wood accents and chrome fixtures. The revised reception area will feature a new oval-shaped bar that will, for the first time, enjoy access to the same view through the floor-to-ceiling windows as the dining room.

A new color palette of "warm browns and cool blues" with seating and lighting upgrades will ensure the dining room has a similarly contemporary feel. Two private dining rooms will ensure the space remains a popular destination for weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, business meetings, and other happy occasions. In the meantime, the restaurant's culinary team is available for off-site events.
