With just a few months until kickoff, preparations for Super Bowl LI are undoubtedly in full swing at Houston’s NRG Stadium. Outside of the sports world, though, the impending big game is having some major ripples in Houston’s dining scene as restaurants prepare for their time in the spotlight.
A post to Corner Table’s website indicates that the restaurant will shutter in order to complete renovations ahead of the holiday season and, of course, the Super Bowl. As CultureMap reported last week, Oakwood Social Club will open in the same building as Corner Table, which means that the restaurant will upgrade to a more “plush” aesthetic to match the atmosphere of the swanky cigar bar.
Lunch and dinner service will be “suspended” for the foreseeable future, but Corner Table will still continue to host private events throughout the remodel.
With a projected opening date of December 2016, Corner Table is giving itself plenty of time to adjust to the newly-remodeled space before thousands of diners descend on the city.
