Luxurious Dallas restaurant set to take Post Oak complex on cosmopolitan Mexican journey
A Dallas-based fine dining restaurant is coming to the Galleria area. The Mexican will open at Four Oaks Place, a 2.3 million-square-feet office complex at 1300 Post Oak Blvd.
Scheduled to open in early 2026, The Mexican will occupy a 10,000-square-foot, freestanding building. Houston’s Abel Design Group (Mastro’s, Willie G’s) will serve as the restaurant’s architect.
First opened in Dallas in 2022, The Mexican is a fine dining restaurant owned by Monterrey businessman Roberto Gonzalez Alcalá, whose family also owns Mission Foods, CultureMap Dallas reports. It serves Northern Mexico-inspired dishes paired with an extensive selection of agave spirits.
"Inside our doors, we are uncovering a new contemporary Mexico, that takes authenticity and luxury to uncharted heights," Gonzalez Alcalá said when the restaurant opened. "Guests will experience an elevated, cosmopolitan dining adventure that exemplifies the true, traditional Mexican culture of innovation and passion, with great cuisine, all in one."
Transwestern Real Estate Services represented Four Oaks Place landlord Nuveen Real Estate. Chodrow Realty Advisors represented The Mexican. More details about the opening are expected to be released next year, according to a release.
“The demand for high-quality dining experiences in the city has never been higher,” Transwestern managing director Crystal Allen said in a statement. “We sourced potential operators from across the country and are delighted with this addition for Houston.”The Mexican joins a number of both traditional Mexican and Tex-Mex options in the Galleria area, including Blanco Cocina + Cantina, The Original Ninfa’s Uptown, and Los Tios’s flagship location in Tanglewood. Dallas Tex-Mex favorite Mi Cocina has claimed the former Seasons 52 space on Westheimer for a new location that’s expected to open in late 2023 or early 2024.
