The anticipated gastropub from James Beard-Award winning chef Bradley Ogden, Pour Society, sets September 1, 2015 as their opening date. We got a glimpse at corporate chef for Ogden Hospitality's restaurants in Houston, Greg Lowry's (The Rockwood Room, The Voice at Hotel Icon, Triniti) and chef de cuisine Matt Lovelace's (Paul's Kitchen) menu for the forthcoming Gateway Memorial City eatery. The menu will focus on reimagined Southern favorites, blending Houston's plethora of cultural ingredients with Texas-style cuisine.

Playful and upgraded takes such as the seven layer dip, but unlike the Krogrer bought party-staple, Pour Society's will be made with crab, shrimp, guacamole, pinto beans, sour cream, corn, pico and radish; Foie Gras with Texas caviar, arepa and BBQ vinaigrette; and fried oysters with bacon aioli, toasted bread, arugula and micro cilantro.

Given the casual, yet upgraded setting patrons can expect a decent sandwich with some bite, like their Texas-styled bahn mi with chicken, chicken liver mousse, chow chow, BBQ vinaigrette and Swiss chard. Standouts on the entrée menu include the Mexican fried chicken thighs with elote mashed potatoes, white cheddar, green chili sauce and egg and the "Pour Man's Filet," with teres major, smashed potatoes, green bean pecadine and ancho-whiskey butter.
