Promising "scenic views" of girls with low self-esteem, Twin Peaks caters to a clientele that may clash with the foodie intelligentsia that hangs out at the neighboring organic-infused restaurant Haven. Can the homemade lemon ricotta tortellini and Dillwood Farms squash blossoms of renowned Haven chef Randy Evans compete with Twin Peaks' fried cheese sticks, buffalo wings and cheesy chili mac?
Will the former's bespoke cocktails rise to the challenge of TP's drinks, which can be ordered in "girly" or "man" sizes?
"Any business there is a good thing," Evans tells CultureMap. "Those guys going there to watch football with their friends will have to go on a date eventually."
Twin Peaks' arrival also might make life easier for Evans. "I think I'll be pulling my waiters out of there between lunch and dinner," the chef says, "but at least I'll know where to find them."
More importantly, can Haven's buttoned-up staff hold an organic beeswax candle to Twin Peaks' buxom waitresses? And will the new restaurant's arrival spark a blue collar breastaurant war with Hooter's across Highway 59?
The Addison-based Twin Peaks has found a 281 following with its first Houston-area location in Webster thanks to its "contagious" atmosphere and "best queso" in Houston. Free Wi-Fi is also part of the deal. The new Twin Peaks has Greenway Plaza power lunches written all over it.
