The farm-to-table chain’s new spot aims to be a neighborhood hangout

Houston’s farm-to-table favorite Dish Society is now up to five locations with the opening of its newest outpost at 1050 Yale Street. The anticipated restaurant officially opened at mixed-use development Heights Central Station this week after a soft opening on Monday, and Dish Society’s got it down to a science with this Heights outpost.

“We’re getting better at this,” founder Aaron Lyons said in a statement. “A lot of the efficiencies come through in the design. We’ve been able to streamline. You learn each time.”

This location includes distressed white brick walls and modern elements like exposed ductwork, along with vintage treasures like a tractor grill and oversized mailbox, all scooped up from the Round Top Antique Festival. The new 3,500-square-foot Heights venue seats 85 and boasts a 24-foot bar and floor-to-ceiling double doors with windows that can open up on nice days. A 50-seat patio is also in the works.

Dish Society aims to be a neighborhood hangout too, with a communal game area outfitted with an oversize Scrabble board and more board games, a miniature foosball table, a large screen TV, and a cozy leather sofa.

The menu is similar to other Dish Society outposts ( as in Nutella French toast at brunch and quinoa-stuffed avocados for dinner). This location has room at the bar for more experimentation though, bringing in local company Kickin’ Kombucha and nitrogen-infused cold brew coffee from Heights-based Recharge Brewing Co. along with cocktails, green juice, and local craft beer on tap alongside Dish Society’s own house red and white wines.

Dish Society’s Heights location is open Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m
