When Chef Ryan Hildebrand closed Triniti Restaurant last year, many wondered what would become of the spot’s gorgeous space on Shepherd Road. Now, the building has an exciting new tenant.

The Houston Chronicle reports that New Orleans steakhouse Doris Metropolitan will set up shop in the stunning space at 2815 Shepherd later this year. According to Eater New Orleans, the restaurant first opened in the French Quarter in 2013, joining an outpost of the swanky steakhouse in Costa Rica that’s been open since 2010.

In Crescent City, Doris Metropolitan is known for its Israeli-inspired steakhouse fare and dry-aged Prime beef. Japanese A5 wagyu is also featured on the menu, along with Gulf fish and lamb chops. In New Orleans, the restaurant also grows much of its own vegetables, but it’s unclear whether or not the garden will be replicated in Houston.

Doris Metropolitan is expected to make its debut in “late 2017.” If this news induces a craving for top-notch beef, check out the city’s best options for enjoying a killer steak that you can actually eat tonight.
