Construction on the second phase of BLVD Place is well underway at Post Oak Boulevard and San Felipe, and news of the first restaurant tenant in the Whole Foods-anchored development has been announced.
The restaurant's menu features globally-inspired cuisine made using seasonal local and regional ingredients with the intention of making diners "feel better, live longer, and [making mouths] happy in the process."
This is just one of "three or four restaurants" that Ed Wulfe, chairman and CEO of Wulfe & Co., plans to draw to the mixed-use development.
Wulfe told CultureMap in October that the company was negotiating with "a series of two or three important restaurants" not already in Houston for the 109,000-plus-square-feet of restaurant and retail space.
According to a CultureMap tipster, the "awesome sexy steak/seafood chain" Ocean Prime was another one. The Cameron Mitchell Restaurants chain allegedly looked at the Galleria-area property for its Houston expansion, but "BLVD Place couldn't get its construction act together and Ocean Prime pulled out, opting to open its Beverly Hills location before Houston."
