Restaurateur Lee Ellis’ Much-Anticipated Starfish Won’t Open Before Super Bowl LI

Look for it to arrive in late February or March

With so many restaurants expected to make their debut in Houston before more than a hundred thousand people pour into the city for Super Bowl LI, it’s not as if those folks will lack dining options. Unfortunately, though, one highly-anticipated new spot won’t quite be ready in time for the big game.

A spokesperson for restaurateur Lee Ellis’ Cherry Pie Hospitality tells Eater that Starfish will not open its doors until at least a few weeks after the Super Bowl. No specific reason was given for the restaurant’s somewhat delayed opening, but it could have something to do with Ellis’ self-described “passion for detail” in ensuring that the “sights, sounds and tastes at Starfish are second to none.”

No menu has been released for Starfish just yet, but diners can look forward to plenty of seafood and scratch-made comfort food from Chef (and partner in the concept) Jim Mills, who developed the menu at Ellis’ State Fare. Right now, the restaurant is expected to arrive in “late February or early March.”
