SwitcHouse Plates & Pours, Spring’s first upscale restaurant according to a representative for the eatery, just debuted inside the newly opened Houston CityPlace Marriott in Springwoods Village.

SwitcHouse is located at 1200 Lake Plaza Drive inside the brand new 10-story Marriott hotel. Gensler-designed interiors boast inspiration from local nature and the railroad industry. To that end, the restaurant’s aesthetics are characterized by mossy green leather chairs, wooden tables, and honey colored wood floors inlaid with diamond-motif tiles. According to a press release, restaurant uniforms incorporate denim to pay homage to railway workers, while the lighting mimics “pine needles on a forest path and water circles created by rain drops on the area ponds.”

Chef Jorge Petterson will head up the culinary program of seasonal dishes that use local produce and meat. Petterson comes from a lengthy background in the hotel industry in Florida, California, Costa Rica, and Puerto Rico, including many Marriott properties. He’s been in the Houston area for the past two years and will use smoke treatments to add his interpretation of “Texas flair” into the dishes. Diners can look forward to a “beer can smoked hen,” smoked onion soup, and slow smoked brisket for dinner among steaks, seafood, and shared plates. Peep the full menu details below.

In addition to being Spring’s first upscale restaurant, according to a press release SwitcHouse is also the first restaurant in CityPlace — Springwoods Village’s new 60-acre mixed-use development. Facing the CityPlace Park and lake system, SwitcHouse is within walking distance to major area employers like the ExxonMobil campus and Southwestern Energy.

SwitcHouse is serving up meals from morning until night. Stay tuned for its hours of operation.
