Paul Qui has dropped a major sneak peek at his forthcoming Houston restaurant, Aqui, over on his Instagram.
Aqui will be an upscale Asian restaurant and is located at 520 Westheimer and the chef’s first location in Houston — outside his typical Austin territory.
The Instagram shows a fetching progress shot of Qui’s forthcoming Houston restaurant — a neat M-shaped roof and gutted-out lawn included. Qui previously posted another Instagram hint — a slightly more cryptic post with a caption-less rendering of the Houston location. Now he’s unveiled the progress on the IRL resto — which is sure shaping up to look like the rendering.
Qui is planning a “spring or early summer” opening for Aqui — which is about when Qui himself will head to court for a 2016 assault charge for allegedly hitting his girlfriend. Qui denies the allegations.
Keep eyes glued here — or, uh, Qui’s Instagram — for further Aqui developments.
