Houston’s Sixth Tableware Company officially opened its doors. After a gentle opening last weekend, the new restaurant is now open every day at Communes on the south side mixed-use development (4191, boul. Bellaire), in the town of Southside Place between Bellaire and West University.
“I love this neighborhood. There is a strong sense of community here among neighborhoods and families who feel good, ”Founder and CEO Aaron Lyons said in a statement. “We really love being this neighborhood staple, and we’ve had an eye on this neighborhood for several years now because of the need and desire for it. “
First opened in Tanglewood in 2014, Dish Society currently has locations in Katy, Memorial, The Heights, and in the downtown Finn Hall food hall. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the restaurant mixes a basic menu of comfort food with rotating seasonal specialties. It sources about 75 percent of its ingredients from Texas. Drink options include juices, local craft beers, and cocktails.
The new locations occupy 3,600 square feet. At full capacity, it will accommodate 100 people inside and 55 others on a spacious terrace both heated and air conditioned.
Lyons worked with designer Gin Braverman from Gin Design Group inside, which will serve as a model for future locations. The character-defining elements include numerous plants, vintage mirrors and handmade wooden furniture.
Over the next few months, Dish Society will be joined in development by Social Palace, a family entertainment destination that will feature bowling, arcade games and multi-sport simulators in part of the space once occupied by Houston’s legendary Palace Lanes bowling alley. Lyons expects there to be a synergy between the two concepts.
“It’s really cool to hear the stories from our guests and even some of the new members of our team about how they grew up going to Palace Lanes and celebrating birthdays there,” he said. . “I think Palace Social’s new approach will bring a second generation of people into space to serve a very similar purpose. I hope the neighborhood is as excited as I am to be a part of it.
Early next year, Dish Society will be moving its location from Katy to a larger and more important space within the development of LaCenterra. Expanded restaurant will feature a look similar to its newly opened sibling
