Georges Guy is heading back to the space most recently occupied by now-defunct Feast, according to the Chronicle's Alison Cook. The chef and his wife Monique Guy opened Bistro Des Arts just last June, right around the time that Feast closed and left the space at 219 Westheimer vacant. Now it seems that the couple will head back east on Westheimer; Cook reports that her Chron colleague Greg Morago confirmed the couple's return to that space via their son, Jean-Philippe. Guy is a prominent figure in Houston's French food scene, having opened notable Chez Georges before his brief retirement. No word yet on what they will call the place, but Cook wonders if it will "revert to Chez Georges or carry on as Bistro des Arts?" Guy's aforementioned son is the manager at French Country Wines, Jean-Philippe's wife Genevieve Guy operates Eater Essential 38 spot Bistro Provence, and Georges' daughter owns both Brasserie Max and Julie in Montrose and Café Rabelais in the Rice Village.
Meanwhile, former Feast co-chef Richard Knight is joining forces with Treadsack, the ownership group behind Down House and D&T Drive Inn with this year's upcoming Hunky Dory. The group has already hosted a pop-up food preview in the form of a Burns Supper at D&T this month. That restaurant is expected to open later this fall.
