Next year, a new tiki-themed restaurant and bar from Nobie’s chef Martin Stayer will officially open its doors on Richmond Avenue.

Back in August, Eater first reported that Stayer had filed permits for The Toasted Coconut, which will set up shop at 1617 Richmond Avenue sometime next year. As we speculated, the 2,850 square foot restaurant will be island-themed, with culinary inspiration from the Caribbean and Southeast Asia, according to Houstonia.

The bar, helmed by Nobie’s bartender Sarah Troxell, will focus on tiki cocktails, including classic recipes developed at iconic tiki-themed bars like Trader Vic’s. Details for the menu are scarce at present, but tiki enthusiasts will be able to preview the libations and dishes on offer at a “Toasty Tuesday” pop-up at Nobie’s on February 12, which will show off The Toasted Coconut’s offerings.

The Toasted Coconut is expected to make its Richmond Avenue debut in Spring 2019. Stay tuned for more details on its arrival.
