New Casual Heights Restaurant/Bar Open May 5


The owner of Savoir and new steakhouse Patton is set to launch a third project, a casual bar and restaurant in the Heights neighborhood, which will open May 5.

“My goal is for Heights & Co. to add to the neighborhood’s wide range of food and beverage offerings and serve as a place where Heights residents, Houstonians from other parts of the city and visitors to out of town can congregate. and enjoy well-prepared food and drink in a fun neighborhood bar atmosphere,” Doke said.
