One of the Houston Press's most anticipated openings of 2017, Presidio, celebrated its grand opening in the Heights at 911 West 11th on Saturday. Charles Bishop, formerly of Southern Goods, and chef Adam Dorris of Pax Americana fame, debuted their new spot for casual Texas-inspired fare with a celebration that included live music, as first reported by the Chronicle .
However, folks hoping to try the new eatery will have to wait until Tuesday, February 14, to get a taste. The restaurant was not open on Sunday (and isn't open today), posting a sign on its door about the closure, as well as a message on its Facebook page.
Presidio had originally planned to be called 60 Pioneers, a concept created by Bishop and his former business partner at Southern Goods, Lyle Bento, who are now involved in a legal battle. The restaurant features outdoor seating both on a covered front porch and in a backyard. The menu has not yet been made available online.
Update 2/14, 10:00 a.m.: Bishop tells the Press that "the lawsuit between Lyle and myself has been resolved. Lyle and I came to an agreement that he would purchase my shares of Southern Goods. I wish him the best as he moves forward. My main focus at this point is the opening of Presidio," where he will be running operations, the beer program and events.
