Underbelly Hospitality, the restaurant group that owns establishments like steakhouse Georgia James and coastal Italian restaurant Pastore, opened the first Underbelly Burger at the Houston Farmers Market in 2021 under the tutelage of Houston James Beard Award-winning chef Chris Shepherd. Though Shepherd helped found the company in 2012 and launched many of its restaurants, he is no longer with the company after his departure in 2022.
The restaurant will be a continuation of Underbelly Hospitality’s recent shifts and slew of openings in recent years. Underbelly Burger will be the second Underbelly restaurant to open this week alone, following the official Friday launch of its sister restaurant Comalito, a taqueria inspired by Mexico City that will open at the Houston Farmers Market. Underbelly also launched its Texas cuisine-focused restaurant Wild Oats in 2022, which will relocate to Spring Branch by the end of the year, followed by the relocation of Georgia James from Montrose to Regent Square, and the closing of GJ Tavern. Most recently, Underbelly Hospitality opened Pastore in June.
Underbelly Burger’s outpost in Spring Branch will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. 1222 Witte Road, 77055.
