Chris Shepherd is Opening a Burger Place
CHRIS SHEPHERD AND UNDERBELLY HOSPITALITY are in a “can’t-stop-won’t-stop” mode. On Friday, MLB Capital Partners announced that the James Beard Award-winning chef’s hospitality company will open a burger restaurant this summer at the Houston Farmers Market.
It’s called Underbelly Burger, and it’ll be parked right next to Wild Oats, another Underbelly restaurant helmed by chef Nick Fine.
Underbelly Burger will have an updated version of Hay Merchant’s Cease and Desist burger, along with burgers and hot dogs featuring Shepherd’s bacon sausage (now available at H-E-B!), plus special burgers and chicken sandwiches. Beef will be sourced from 44 Farms and RC Ranch Texas Craft Meats, which will have its butcher shop next door at the Farmers Market.
