Lazy Dog, a giant lodge-themed restaurant that serves up lunch, brunch, and dinner in a dog-friendly atmosphere, hits Houston next week.
The first Space City outpost of the national chain will debut at 20030 Northwest Freeway in the Cypress Crossing development. According to a press release, interiors were designed to feel like a Rocky Mountain Wyoming retreat, where the founder’s family vacations. Diners can expect lodge-like furnishings including fireplaces and rustic light fixtures and furniture, plus multiple flat-screen TVs for game watching throughout the bar and giant dog-friendly patio. The patio also offers a selection of special dishes for diners’ four-legged furry friends.
At its dozens of outposts across the U.S., Lazy Dog is known for its enormous menu of Americana-themed dishes like shrimp & grits with house-made sausage and bell pepper gravy; wild boar chili with indigo cornbread fries; lamb barbacoa tacos; and seared ahi tuna salad. Burgers, sandwiches, salads, rice and noodle bowls, meat-laden entrees, and vegetarian dishes round out the sprawling selection of dishes.
Dessert options include a compelling gluten-free carrot cake made with almond flour and pineapple buttercream, as well as an apple-huckleberry open-faced pie, all made in house. As far as drinks are concerned, diners can sip on cocktails like the smoked maple bacon old fashioned and the hibiscus margarita with small-batch Lunazul tequila. Local beers as well as Lazy Dog’s own line of brews will also be on offer.
Lazy Dog officially opens July 31 at 11 a.m. and will operate Monday through Friday 11 a.m. to 12 a.m. Saturday and Sunday 9 a.m. to 12 a.m.
