Continuing the parade of restaurants from Austin expanding into Houston, popular eatery Foreign & Domestic could be eyeing a Space City location.
A post to the European-inspired restaurant’s Instagram account indicates that Foreign & Domestic is considering opening an outpost in Houston. According to Eater Austin, Chef Ned Elliott opened the restaurant with his ex-wife Jodi, who has since departed the business. On his own, Elliott has racked up accolades for his progressive New American fare in the ensuing years.
In Austin, Foreign & Domestic serves up a menu simply prepared proteins, like roasted chicken and Wagyu beef culotte served with shiitake mushrooms and onion jam. Also of note is Dollar Oyster Tuesdays, a special that would definitely be popular in Houston. In case an endorsement from the world’s favorite spiky-haired chef is important, the restaurant was featured on a 2012 episode of Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.
Eater has reached out to Foreign & Domestic for more details on its Houston expansion. In the meantime, scope out the evidence:
