This is so interesting! I’m not posting a link to the article because the paper is subscription only, but you can see the good news in the screen shot! I have high hopes for Katie’s new restaurant venture. I notice Katie’s is also supplying Chris Shepherd’s One Fifth Gulf Coast year long restaurant project. It’s almost oyster season, my favorite season. @jcostiones, if you get here first, be sure and let us know how it is.
On a sad note, both locations of Olympia Grill have apparently closed for good. I really liked the harborside setting on 21st Street Pier.
Sadder still is the news that Clary’s will not continue following the death of Clary Milburn a few years ago. The building it was in on Teichman Road was always in a precarious position over the water and suffered repeated damage from storms over the years. Jack Nicholson and Shirley MacLain shot a scene here for the movie Terms of Endearment. I’m personally acquainted with some of the Milburn family in Galveston and they are fine people.
Speaking of floods, I hope all of our faithful HO remnant are safe and dry following last week’s edition of “Houston Floods.”
