If you’re a fan of Bosscat Kitchen + Libations’ laid back comfort food and whiskey-centric cocktails, you’re in luck. Soon, there’ll be even more Bosscat to go around. The team behind the recently opened River Oaks restaurant is bringing a second concept to The Heights later this year.
The new restaurant — BCK: Kitchen and Cocktail Adventures — will take over the former Glass Wall space at 933 Studewood Street, making for yet another new high-profile Houston restaurant opening in The Heights this year.
“We created this idea two years ago when we were still living in Newport Beach, but we never had a venue for it,” Bosscat co-owner John Reed says. “The Heights is the perfect neighborhood for this type of creativity. It’s going to give us a great canvas to step outside the box.”
While BCK is expected to channel Bosscat’s laid-back vibes, the future neighborhood restaurant will definitely stand apart from its sister concept. Bosscat owners Vinnie Capizzi, Leslie Nguyen and Reed alongside managing partner Tai Nguyen will present an entirely different menu at BCK.
Executive chef Peter Petro and bar director Matt Sharp will help the proprietors’ vision come to live with a food and drink menu inspired by nostalgic American fare. Dishes will be representative of food the group would devour at their kitchen tables in the ‘80s and ‘90s.
BCK joins new concepts such as seafood-centric restaurant Star Fish, German-American biergarten King’s Bierhaus, and Justin Yu’s neighborhood bar Better Luck Tomorrow in The Heights’ burgeoning restaurant revolution.
