As previously reported on Eater Houston, chef Justin Yu is opening a restaurant early next year. In a press release sent today, Yu, along with his partners Karen Man and Justin Vann announced that the restaurant's name will be Oxheart and the location is 1302 Nance Street. If that address sounds familiar, it's because it is the current home of Latin Bites Cafe, which is relocating to Tanglewood next month (the old Rockwood Room).
Yu's wife and partner, Karen Man will be providing bread and pastries for the restaurant while the third partner, Justin Vann will be acting as general manager and beverage director for Oxheart. Find out why they chose the name and get additional details by checking out the press release in full.
