There’s good news ahead for lovers of The Breakfast Klub. Marcus Davis has revealed he’ll be opening a new restaurant in Houston dubbed Kulture in early 2018. Kulture will be located at 701 Avenida De Las Americas right by the George R. Brown Convention Center and Discovery Green in the heart of downtown Houston.
Trademarked as “an urban komfort kitchen” by Davis, the new restaurant will serve lunch, dinner, and drinks inspired by the islands of the Caribbean and the Gulf Coast.
Best known for his charismatic personality and customer service, native Houstonian Davis long ago recognized a breakfast void in Houston. The Breakfast Klub’s since grown into a well-known tourist attraction, and has been touted for producing the best breakfast in America by Good Morning America. Davis’ second restaurant — The Reggae Hut in the Third Ward — focuses on Caribbean specialities.
Davis now even has a line of Breakfast Klub branded “koffees,” waffle and pancake mixes and a soulful and savory seasoning mix.
Known primarily for its “Katfish & Grits” and “Wings & Waffles, The Breakfast Klub expanded to an airport location.at IAH. Now, the family-owned company that traces its roots back to Davis working with his brothers at his father’s Houston catering business is growing again.
Kulture will explore the cuisines of the African diaspora, including Caribbean fare and the food of the Gulf Coast. While Davis won’t spill any info on future menu items quite yet, the success of the Breakfast Klub and Reggae Hut Cafe have set a high bar. Davis insists that community, or “kommunity” as he puts it, remain the guiding principle of this self-made family empire.
While Kulture certainly won’t be the first restaurant focusing on Caribbean and Gulf Coast food (Punta Cana Caribbean Restaurant and Cool Runnings are a few of our favorites), it will be a welcome addition to Houston’s diverse food scene. While most African restaurants in Houston focus on South African or Ethiopian, we expect Davis’ Kulture to add a twist of eccentricity.
After all, he never just does what everyone expects.
