Restaurants just keep coming to CityCentre, the popular mixed-use complex on Houston's west side. With the energy corridor nearby, it's not surprising that Capital Grille is hungry to open its second Houston location at CityCentre Four, the new tower that will be completed this summer.

The upscale steakhouse, known for dry-aged steaks, fresh seafood and an award-winning wine list, plans a fall opening.

Owners Darden Restaurants will continue to operate a Capital Grille location at 5365 Westheimer, near the Galleria.

Salata has also inked a deal to open a new location in the CityCentre tower this fall. The Houston-based, salad-centric restaurant chain, founded by Berge Simonian and Tony Kyoumjian, is in the midst of expanding not only throughout Texas but also in California. Its create-your-own, tossed-to-order salads come with a wide selection of ingredients and dressings made from scratch.

CityCentre has already announced several new storefronts and restaurants, including the Aggie-approved College Station import, Grub Burger Bar, and Seasons 52, the fresh grill and wine bar restaurant where everything on the menu is 475 calories or less. (Seasons 52 recently opened its first Houston location in Millennium High Street.) The first Houston-area location of Texas de Brazil Churrascaria also recently opened in CityCentre.

With a number of top restaurants also coming to the mixed-use development Gateway Memorial City, could the west side be primed to give the Galleria area a run for its money?
