HOUSTON – (Realty News Report) – Houston-based Berg Hospitality Group will open Buttermilk Baby, which reimagines the all-American soda fountain, in the M-K-T Heights development on North Shepherd Drive.
Berg tapped New York-based design firm, ICRAVE, to help create the modern and cool 3,100 SF restaurant. Berg’s concept will feature breakfast platters, flakey biscuits, fried chicken sandwiches, juicy burgers and salads.
“For Buttermilk Baby, we decided to take our fine-dining mindset and apply it to the aesthetics, ingredients and techniques of a fast casual concept, creating what we are calling a fun, ‘cool casual’ concept,” says Benjamin Berg, founder of Berg Hospitality Group, which operates several restaurants in Houston. “We’re taking a great mix of classic Southern dishes and using only the highest-quality ingredients to provide something for everyone.”
Buttermilk Baby will be located in M-K-T Heights, Building 2, which is owned by Triten Real Estate Partners and Radom Capital. Berg Hospitality was represented in lease negotiations by Erin Dyer of Read King, and Triten Real Estate Partners was represented by Steve Radom of Radom Capital.
“When Ben described how Buttermilk Baby would re-imagine the classic American soda fountain in a modern, approachable form, we instantly fell in love with his vision,” added Steve Radom, Managing Principal of Radom Capital. “Ben has been blessed with an intuitive sensitivity that allows him to reinterpret his life’s experiences into exciting hospitality offerings.”
Founded by restaurateur Benjamin Berg, the Berg culinary group is also responsible for creating B&B Butchers & Restaurant in Houston and Fort Worth, B.B. Lemon, The Annie Café & Bar, Turner’s, NoPo Café, Market & Bar, Trattoria Sofia, B.B. Italia Bistro & Bar, and Emilia’s Havana.
“Berg Hospitality is a brand that epitomizes creativity, culinary excellence, and thoughtful design centered on providing its customers with a differentiated and curated experience,” said Scott Arnoldy, Founding Partner of Triten Real Estate Partners. “This is exactly what we sought out when dreaming up M-K-T, and therefore is a perfect marriage for our project.”
The M-K-T project is located just north of Interstate 10 at the corner of Shepherd Drive and Sixth Street. The site is west of Heights Blvd and east of TC Jester.
The pedestrian-friendly development is bordered by the White Oak Bayou and Heights Hike and Bike Trails.
