Underbelly Burger opens at The Houston Farmers Market; NewQuest Properties tapped for leasing gig
Underbelly Burger is now open at The Houston Farmers Market as of Jan. 6, offering a selection of handcrafted burgers along with milkshakes, beer and wine, among other menu options.
Run by Underbelly Hospitality, a creation from Chris Shepherd, a James Beard award-winning chef, Underbelly Burger occupies one of several restaurant spaces at the market. Crawfish & Noodles, a concept of James Beard semifinalist Trong Nguyen, will open at the site in the spring.
Leasing for the remaining spaces and vendor slots at the market was recently turned over to NewQuest Properties, according to a Jan. 17 press release from NewQuest. Leasing was previously handled by a team from MLB Capital Partners, which acquired the property in 2017 and has been conducting a redevelopment effort ever since.
