Posh Italian restaurant and electric car brand headline new additions to Uptown Park
Uptown Park continues to stake its claim as one of Houston’s premier shopping and dining destinations. Real Estate developer EDENS announced four new tenants that are coming soon to the Galleria-area development.
- Lombardi Cucina Italiana: an Italian restaurant from Dallas-based restaurant group Lombardy Family Concepts
- Polestar: a showroom for Volvo’s electric car brand
- GLOSSLAB: a nail salon known for “waterless nail services”
- Kindbody: a fertility clinic that aims to make treatments available at a lower cost than other providers
Lombardi Cucina Italiana will occupy over 9,000-square-feet in the former Tasting Room space. It will be the company’s second Houston-area restaurant, joining Toulouse in River Oaks District.
Assuming it’s similar to the location that exists at The Star in Frisco, Texas, diners can expect a modern, luxurious Italian restaurant centered around freshly made pastas alongside shareables like fried calamari, meatballs, and wood-grilled octopus and center of plate entrees that include whole branzino, steaks, and osso bucco. Beverage options include Italian-inspired cocktails and an extensive wine list.
Both the Polestar showroom and Glosslab salon will be their brands second Texas locations. Together with Rocambolesc, an ice cream shop by world-renown pastry Jordi Roca, the new additions give Uptown Park five new concepts to open this year, joining staples such as Etoile, Urbe, and Flower Child.
“The addition of these five concepts to Uptown Park continues to provide our guests with the most sought-after brands and experiences,” EDENS vice president Michael Hale said in a statement. “Paired with our commitment to enriching our neighborhood, we are excited to continue introducing new shopping and dining experiences that enhance the surrounding community.”
