Not content to just open Houston’s most sophisticated honky-tonk in Goodnight Charlie’s, master sommelier and budding restaurateur David Keck is plotting a Montrose takeover.
Along with his partners Peter McCarthy and chef Felipe Riccio, Keck’s Goodnight Hospitality will open two new restaurants and a cheese shop in the neighborhood, all expected to arrive next year. They’ll be located in the spaces adjacent to Goodnight Charlie’s, which opened at 2531 Kuester Street in December.
“We love how eclectic and vibrant the neighborhood already is,” McCarthy said in a statement. “We believe the surrounding restaurant and bar scene is representative of the Houston culinary scene at large. We can only aspire that our three concepts add to that.”
Scope out details on each of the forthcoming spots below:
- March — described as an “intimate, 28-seat restaurant,” this fine dining restaurant will showcase Mediterranean cuisine and a wine list developed by Keck that’s been in the works for more than two years.
- Rosie Cannonball — A creatively-named, more casual eatery that will serve pizzas, breads, and entrees prepared in a wood-burning grill and oven. The restaurant will also offer a list of affordably-priced wines from the Loire Valley and “progressive New World producers.”
- Montrose Cheese & Wine — Described by Keck as the neighborhood’s first cheese shop, the group’s third addition to the neighborhood brings a rotating selection of cheeses and wines, plus beer and cider. A market area will sell gifts, including a selection of culinary and cocktail tools selected by Riccio and Keck.
No official opening timeline for these three exciting new additions to Montrose has been announced just yet, but expect for them to arrive sometime in 2019.
