Next year, Chef Ned Elliott will bring his popular Austin restaurant Foreign & Domestic to Houston, and it’s probably going to land in Bellaire.
On Friday, Eater Austin reported that Elliott had sold the Austin location of Foreign & Domestic to chefs Nathan Lemley and Sarah Heard. Despite that sale, Elliott still maintains ownership of the Foreign & Domestic brand, which means that he’ll still be in charge of the Houston restaurant when it makes its arrival at some point next year, but it won’t share much in common with the Austin restaurant other than the name.
Before opening the Houston restaurant, Elliott will open an outpost of Foreign & Domestic in his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. Space City’s location is expected to follow after that, and will likely be located somewhere near Bellaire. No leases have been signed just yet, but Elliott expects that Foreign & Domestic will arrive in Houston in winter 2018.
