Gap Concepts, the team behind XOXO Dining Room, a positively pink palace in Dallas – a place typified by cupcake ferris wheels, champagne buttons, and sparkling drinks –open its latest concept today in Houston. Now you can enjoy a pink oasis of cocktails and cupcakes at PostScript HTX at Arrive River Oaks.
Headed by Gap Concepts’ Veeral Rathod and Obi Ibeto, PostScript HTX features bubbly weekend brunches, girl night hangs, and celebratory dinners at the Arrive River Oaks mixed-use development come this January, according to River Oaks Lifestyle.
“We aim for our guests to feel honored – a place where flavors, art, and community reimagines the essence of dining in Houston,” says Ibeto, co-owner in a press release. “Being surrounded by the bustling businesses, complemented by the prestigious shopping hub of Tootsies, adds a layer of richness to the experience we are thrilled to offer.”
Much like the XOXO Dining Room, Postscript HTX features a stunning, saturated, and undoubtedly Instagrammable interior. Formerly occupied by Del Frisco’s Grille, the new 9,300-square-foot space designed by Jeffrey Abel of Abel Design Group is set to feature a 393-seat main dining room, 75-seat cocktail and dining lounge, 26-seat garden patio.
Furthermore, patrons here will find a private dining space, bar, and patio as well as cozy booths ideal for sharing plates, as well as irreverent cocktails, as well as XOXO’s staple Press for Champagne doorbells.
PostScript HTX will also offer a culinary menu created by Food & Wine Best New Chef-nominated and James Beard Award-finalist Bryan Caswell.
“With PostScript, we wanted to create a sensory-expanding space bursting with color and dynamism in such a way as to beckon each guest to fully explore the confines and take in each and every meticulously crafted detail,” says Rathod, co-owner in a press release.
“While certainly a calling card of the restaurant, the design is not the only element worth touting; Chef Caswell’s menu is one that perfectly complements PostScript’s striking interior space. He has truly outdone himself with this menu, one that Houstonians and visitors alike will find refreshing and authentic.”
PostScript HTX will also offer an elevated cocktail menu and champagne program to top off the experience.
The bar restaurant is now open at 2800 Kirby Dr., Suite A-132 at Shops at Arrive River Oaks.
