The team behind Uptown Sushi has a new restaurant dubbed Sushi Rebel in the works for the CityPlace development at north Houston’s Springwoods Village.

Uptown Sushi landed in The Galleria area’s Uptown Park more than 15 years ago. This year the flagship location unveiled a completely refreshed look while keeping its menu largely the same, packed with its destination-worthy sashimi platters, sushi towers, rolls, nigiri, and more.

Owners Peggy and Daniel Chang just secured a new 3,700-square-foot space for a sophomore project called Sushi Rebel at 1700 Lake Plaza Drive, planning to fuel up neighboring tenants ExxonMobil, HP, ABS and Southwestern Energy on its core raw fish offerings.

The plan is to operate at lunch until late at night. Stay tuned for more details, like menu items and ETA, as they emerge. Here’s a look at the logo:

CityPlace is also readying to welcome Island Grill, cult Houston bakery Common Bond, and Star Cinema Grill, a 10-screen, dine-in movie theater.

The huge mixed-used development is the commercial hub for Springwoods Village, a 2,000-acre master planned community along the west side of Interstate 45 between Springwoods Village Parkway and the Grand Parkway.
