Chris Shepherd’s Hospitality Group Announces Two New Restaurants
THOUGHT YOU KNEW about every likely restaurant opening in 2021? Here comes Chris Shepherd and Underbelly Hospitality to add some chaos.
Underbelly announced on Wednesday that Wild Oats will open at the Houston Farmers Market, the property being redeveloped by MLB Partners at 2520 Airline Dr. The company is handing the keys to this place over to Nick Fine, UB Hospitality’s culinary director, who also opened One Fifth as its chef de cuisine.
At Wild Oats, Fine, a Houston native, will go all in on Texas cuisine, sourcing from local farmers and ranchers and producing dishes such as shrimp and grits with masa. NEST Design Group is overseeing the design of Wild Oats, which is projected to open in the summer.
