Sylvia’s Enchilada Kitchen Reopens After Two Weeks of Hurricane Harvey Clean-Up

The Eldridge Parkway location saw extensive flood damage


Restaurateur Sylvia Casares has officially reopened the Eldridge Parkway location of Sylvia’s Enchilada Kitchen after Hurricane Harvey forced the restaurant to close for more than two weeks.

Casares is opening the doors for lunch at 1140 Eldridge Parkway after an extensive (if quick) clean-up of the damage caused by the storm. The restaurant was impacted by flood damage, according to a press release, which meant that clean-up crews have been hard at work repairing the building, redecorating the dining room, and getting the kitchen back in fighting shape.

Fortunately, the Woodway location of Sylvia’s Enchilada Kitchen opened pretty quickly after the worst of Hurricane Harvey, and didn’t sustain any major damage. The Eldridge location was definitely flooded, evidenced by the photo below, posted to the restaurant’s Facebook page:
