Two sister restaurants are celebrating a grand opening next week, anchoring Generation Park’s Redemption Square development. Wholesome Kitchen and Wholesome Pies just announced a grand opening date of Thursday, June 6 at 250 Assay Street at Generation Park.
The flagship restaurants for the development will offer something for everyone, even picky diners, with pizza, spaghetti carbonara, and Asian sticky ribs on the menus. Restaurateur Michael Collins of The Fish in Midtown is behind both new projects under the restaurant group name Wholesome Restaurant Group, and Theyen Hoang is executive chef.
Wholesome Pies serves up thin crust Neapolitan pizzas in a wood fired 900-degree oven, with pies like the Honey Bee, made with honey, chili oil, mozzarella, basil and tomato sauce. The 80-seat restaurant includes a Houston-themed mural by local graffiti artist Mario E. Figueroa, Jr. Wholesome Pies is currently operating during a soft opening, and during the grand opening, it will offer half off pizza’s, half off appetizers, and drink specials.
Meanwhile, the 4,000-square-foot Wholesome Kitchen’s menu includes beet hummus, citrus kale salads, and entrees like grilled pork chops. The brass-accented space seats up to 180 guests, and both restaurants share a 72-seat patio.
Wholesome Pies’ hours of operation are Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.; while Wholesome Kitchen’s hours are Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.; and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
