HOUSTON – (Realty News Report) – The Mexican, a fine dining Mexican restaurant in Dallas, is coming to Houston.
In Houston, The Mexican will be housed in a free-standing 10,000-SF restaurant that will be constructed in the Central Plaza of Four Oaks Place, a major office park located about a half-mile north of The Galleria.
The Mexican is a high-end eatery with dinner menu items including Langosta Enchiladas with salsa chiapanaca for $40; Sea Bas Regio with zarandado sauce for $48; and Milagro Bone Ribeye with piquin roja sauce for $62.
“We pledge to inspire with our layers of details and motivate with our skills to elevate the Mexican Food and Tequila experience,” the restaurant says on its website.
The menu will resemble that of the Dallas location but with several Houston-focused additions, the operators say. The restaurant is expected to be completed in early 2026.
Chodrow Realty Advisors’ Chelsea Padon and Alan Chodrow represented the restaurant in negotiations.
Transwestern Real Estate Service’s Crystal Allen and Kim Bernick represented the landlord, Nuveen Real Estate.
Designed by famed architect Cesar Pelli, Four Oaks Place is an office development with 2.3 million-SF of space. It was developed by Giorgio Bodlenghi’s Interfin company and opened in the early 1980s.
“Nuveen is proactively embracing the flight to quality,” said Skylar Huth, Director of Workplace, Retail & Mixed-use at Nuveen. “The addition of The Mexican is the result of a years-long strategic plan to ensure the right operator is placed among the existing array of hospitality offerings in Four Oaks Place.”
Abel Design Group will serve as architect for The Mexican in Houston.
“The demand for high-quality dining experiences in the city has never been higher,” said Transwestern’s Allen. “We sourced potential operators from across the country and are delighted with this addition for Houston.”
The posted dress code for The Mexican in Dallas prohibits guests from wearing ball caps, which would presumably include hats worn in support of the Houston Astros (World Champions in 2022.)
