Hold on to summer with a fruity drink and a plate of fried chicken at The Toasted Coconut, the highly-anticipated, newly-opened tiki bar from Nobie’s chef Martin Stayer and. Houstonia got a look inside the restaurant’s palapa at 1617 Richmond Avenue (formerly home to Montrose Tex-Mex eatery Maria Selma Restaurant), complete with a patio waterfall and adjacent “adult sandbox.”
The restaurant shared on Instagram yesterday: “It’s official! @gettoastedhtx IS NOW OPEN at 4PM everyday except Tuesdays!!!” The tiki bar is serving up cocktails with ingredients like rum and coconut water along with wine and beer, and there’s plenty to eat here too. The Toasted Coconut’s menu is focused on food from the 20th parallel north, which lends itself to crispy Thai rice, dumplings, and skewers.
Here’s exactly what “grandma’s fried chicken” looks like at The Toasted Coconut.
