French bakery chooses Rice Village for second location, adds wine and beer to both menus


Flo Paris has come a long way in a short time. The bakery-cafe opened quietly on Westheimer almost exactly one year ago, but it’s already growing.


Owner Rabih Salibi tells CultureMap that he will open a second location in Rice Village, at the site of the recently-shuttered Mercantile coffee shop. Although he had considered an option in Montrose, Salibi says Rice Village is a better fit. The area’s pedestrian traffic will allow the bakery to be open from 7 am until 10 pm (the Westheimer location currently closes at 3 pm).



When the new location opens in August, it will incorporate several lessons learned during the first year, with additions to the menu at both locales. First, each location will feature a dedicated coffee bar. Second, both locations will begin serving beer and wine. Finally, Philippe Schmit, the acclaimed chef who recently parted ways with Toulouse Cafe & Bar, has returned to help Flo Paris develop new menu items that will make it more appealing as both a brunch and dinner destination.

Flo Paris crab eclair

“American people like to drink a lot of coffee,” Salibi says. “We use Lavazza. The general manager of Lavazza in Texas came just to see what’s going on. She was impressed by how much we use coffee from them. She was really surprised. I’m surprised, too.”

Adding beer and wine will allow Flo Paris to serve something its customers have been asking for almost since day one. Expect 15 to 20 wines by the glass with a mix of French, Italian, and Californian options. Cheese plates are also coming.

“When you are talking French, it’s cheese and wine. We don’t want to serve cheese without wine,” Salibi explains.

Salibi has also hired two new chefs from France — Schmit describes them as “rock stars” — one for the savory side and one to assist baker Dany Srour.

“Most of my time I spend creating new dishes to change a few things at Flo here and also for the new location,” Schmit says. “Rabih wanted a larger variety of food that we can rotate, also more adapted to the new location and the new hours.”

Schmit showed off a number of new dishes that are coming to Flo Paris’s menu, including eggs Benedict served on one of the bakery’s croissants, a duck proscuitto Napoleon, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on toasted brioche bread (for the kid’s menu), and a savory eclair filled with crab salad and topped with a tomato glaze. French “boulanger-style” pizza, which is known for its thick, foccacia-like crust, will be available by the slice in a variety of flavors.

Flo Paris pistachio opera cake

Srour has also been busy. On the savory side, he’s developed a new bread with sundried tomato, cheese and olives. Additions to the pastry side include a pistachio-flavor opera cake and a classic palmier (the classic “elephant ear” pastry).

With so much success and such promising prospects, only one truly bad thing has happened to Flo Paris in its first year — a rare zero-star review from Chronicle critic Alison Cook that trashed almost every aspect of the bakery’s offerings. Salibi hasn’t commented publicly on the dressing down, but he plans to continue working hard every day to prove her wrong.

“I decided, and I told chef Philippe, the best thing is not to react and not to call her,” Salibi says. “Leave her alone. Let’s continue what we have to do. I think she will make another article. I don’t know when. She will say ‘I’m sorry about Flo Paris.’”

A husband-and-wife duo have opened their newest restaurant downtown — just in time for the 2017 Super Bowl.

Chef Hugo Ortega and his wife, restaurateur Tracy Vaught, opened Xochi on Jan. 27 on the ground floor of the Marriott Marquis, which is serving as the official headquarters for the National Football League. The hotel, which overlooks Discovery Green at 1777 Walker St., opened in December.

Xochi — from Xochitl, the goddess of the flowers — means to bloom or catch fire. The restaurant’s menu incorporate themes from Oaxaca, the culinary capital of Mexico.


Authentic Oaxacan herbs will be used in the menu along with several moles, including a mole sampler plate, according to a statement. A variety of meats, seafood and vegetables will be prepared on the horno, or wood-fired oven. Items include barbacoa de res de zaachila (braised skirt steak rolled with hoja santa, guajillo and costeño pepper broth, potato, carrots, masa dumplings), bistec con mole de chicatana (grilled prime Black Angus ribeye, seared black bean tamal, ant mole); and lechon (slow-cooked suckling pig, huaxmole, plantain molotes). Sopa de piedra, an ancient, traditional fish and shrimp soup, heated with hot river rocks from the horno, will also be served.




Tlayudas, the iconic street food dish of Oaxaca, is another menu item. Thin Oaxacan tortillas will be offered with various toppings – from beef to pork to mushroom – and cooked over wood in the horno. Tacos, tamales, memelas (toasted masa pancakes with roasted pork rib), tetelas (triangular blue masa envelopes filled with cheese) and other street food classics will be served.

Insects, delicacies in Mexico, will be found on the menu in dishes such as the queso del rancho, which is housemade queso de cincho with chicharrones, three insects and guacamole.

Desserts at Xochi, crafted by executive pastry chef Ruben Ortega, feature traditional flavors of chocolate, chiles, tamarind and corn, among other flavors.

Huge lines greet wildly popular Austin burger chain’s arrival, with a second H-Town location on the way


By Eric Sandler – 5.31.16 | 11:26 am – Culture Map Houston

Judging by the hundreds of people who stood in line up to three hours on Monday, Houstonians are very excited about Austin-based burger juggernaut Hopdoddy Burger Bar’s arrival in River Oaks District.

In town for the opening, co-founder Larry Perdido (a Houston native and Strake Jesuit alum) concedes it’s taken the company too long to arrive in Houston.

“It’s something I’ve wanted to do since year one — once we figured out we could scale this thing,” Perdido tells CultureMap. “We’ve come close to having a couple of spots here. We should have been here about three years ago.”


Hopdoddy Houston

Brand manager Erin Fohn notes that Houstonians have been asking for a location since the first location opened in 2010. “It took us this long to find the right spot,” she says, but plans for at least one more are already underway.

The company’s second location will be in Rice Village, Perdido confirms. While he wasn’t ready to confirm a timeline, opening next year would put Hopdoddy head to head with Houston’s second Shake Shack location to make the shopping area a must-visit burger destination.

While Houstonians will have to wait a bit for that opening, no one seems to be holding a grudge that it’s taken so long for the first one to arrive. Fohn said the line, which snaked in front of Hopdoddy before turning a corner at the new outdoor shopping center, was the longest she’s seen at any location’s opening day. A dream deferred is not a dream denied — at least when it comes to hamburgers.


Hopdoddy Houston

Thankfully, the restaurant has grown pretty adept at managing the lines. A dedicated server offers diners the chance to get drinks while they wait, and the kitchen sends out a constant stream of samples of both fries and shakes.

“The first person who doesn’t get a sample because we ran out gets the cowbell,” Fohn explains. “When they order, they get free fries. That happens all day.”

Once they reach the end of the line, diners will find a wide selection of burgers awaits. Choose from beef, chicken, turkey, tuna, or veggie patties. Both traditional and gluten-free buns are available, with a wide range of toppings. Fries come plain, topped with parmesan and truffle oil, or alongside queso (either regular or green chile).

While all of those things sound pretty familiar, Hopdoddy sets itself apart by its control of the process. Buns are baked on site — the aroma of freshly baked bread occasionally wafts into the dining room — and all meat, hormone and antibiotic-free, natch, is ground in-house.

In addition to the expected sodas and shakes, Hopdoddy offers a full bar, as well as craft beer and wine. A frozen margarita costs $7, and most of the rest are either $8 or $9.

Perdido says diners can start with one of the company’s beef burgers, but his favorites are the Continental Club (a turkey burger with bacon and provolone) and the Ahi tuna.

“Those are my two that I personally eat (and) some of the salads. When I designed it, there are definitely different categories to hit. Some are very cheffy or foodie in design. The akaushi (beef) is very decadent, very rich,” he notes.

Whatever the order, Houstonians are obviously excited about the city’s newest burger joint. While the opening day line probably won’t be repeated, don’t expect to walk right in, either. Everybody wants a first bite of a Hopdoddy burger.

Hopdoddy opens daily at 11 am.

In one of the largest office leases this year, the American Bureau of Shipping and ABS Group have inked a deal to move to CityPlace, a 60-acre mixed-use development under construction in Springwoods Village, the master-planned community south of The Woodlands and home to Exxon Mobil’s new campus.

The groups will occupy all of the office space in the 326,800-square-foot CityPlace 2, a 10-story building that will break ground early next year, according to an announcement Tuesday.The building will include 23,700 square feet of ground-floor retail space, as well.

The partnership behind CityPlace, Patrinely Group, USAA Real Estate Co. and CDC Houston, will also develop CityPlace 1, a 149,600-square-foot building to be constructed across from ABS’s new headquarters.The building will include 122,700 square feet of office and 26,900 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

When completed, the overall CityPlace project will include 4 million square feet of office space with 400,000 square feet of retail space, luxury apartments and a full-service hotel.

“This development offers great amenities and a state-of-the-art, energy-efficient office design for our employees in an attractive location,” Christopher Wiernicki, ABS’s CEO, said in the announcement. “The new facility reaffirms our commitment to the Houston area.”

The American Bureau of Shipping is an international classification firm serving the marine and offshore industries, and ABS Group is a a technical services subsidiary involved in safety and reliability for energy industries and government sectors. Current offices in are in the Greenspoint area in 16855 Northchase Dr.

Tim Relyea and Kevin Snodgrass of Cushman & Wakefield represented ABS in lease negotiations. Chrissy Wilson of JLL and Dennis Tarro of Patrinely Group presented the landlord.

Transwestern Retail is leasing the retail space in CityPlace, with Nick Hernandez, Chace Henke and Crystal Allen leading the effort.

Week in Review: Housing affordability, energy megadeals, major commercial real estate projects among top stories




What oil slump? There was news of job cuts and bankruptcy filings last week, but the top headlines focused on major energy deals and highly anticipated commercial real estate projects — just like old times. Heck, even the housing market apparently hasn’t received the oil slump memo.

Let’s take a look at Houston Business Journal’s most-read stories from Sept. 28 to Oct. 4.
A view of the Kirby Collection from Kirby Drive. The announcement of the Kirby Collection’s groundbreaking date was one of HBJ’s most-read stories last week.

A view of the Kirby Collection from Kirby Drive. The announcement of the Kirby Collection's groundbreaking date was one of HBJ's most-read stories last week.

Housing market

Houston’s housing costs just keep rising. The most-read story last week was Paul Takahashi’s “Rice study: Houston crosses threshold of housing unaffordability.” The Rice University report found that Houstonians spend more than the national average on housing and transportation costs. Other findings — such as the neighborhoods with the least-affordable housing and Houston’s growing traffic problems — probably weren’t a surprise to many.

Next up were three stories about major energy deals, all in different phases.

Dallas-based Energy Transfer Equity LP (NYSE: ETE) won out the deal to take over The Williams Companies Inc. (NYSE: WMB) after months of negotiation. A few Houston-based companies had reportedly shown interest in acquiring Oklahoma-based Williams, and the newly announced deal will be of significant interest to many Houston companies. The $37.7 billion deal is expected to create the world’s largest operator of infrastructure for the movement and processing of oil and natural gas.

Additionally, Houston-based oilfield services giants Halliburton Co. (NYSE: HAL) and Baker Hughes Inc. (NYSE: BHI) announced more divestments they’ll make to close their megadeal. The companies also pushed back the latest closing date for Halliburton’s $34.6 billion acquisition of Baker Hughes.

Finally, Suzanne Edwards took a look at how Accenture PLC (NYSE: ACN) will use its acquisition of the consulting arm of Schlumberger Ltd. (NYSE: SLB) to compete with the big three consultancies in Houston. That story surged over the weekend to take the No. 2 spot for the week.

Major real estate projects

A massive, long-awaited mixed-use project on Kirby Drive will break ground Oct. 5— that announcement was the No. 5 story of the week. Roxanna Asgarian’s exclusive tour of the Marriott Marquis under construction in the convention center district was the sixth-most-read story, and the first luxury apartment complex planned for Fulshear was No. 7.

The week even ended with some big commercial real estate news. Just before 3 p.m. on Oct. 2, news broke that a posh hotel first announced in January 2014 would break ground this month. That story managed to crack the top 20 stories this week, landing at No. 19.

ConocoPhillips reportedly plans to buy new building



Houston-based ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP) reportedly plans to buy one of the new buildings it’s leasing in the Energy Corridor.  Real Estate Alert, a commercial real estate industry publication, reports the oil giant has agreed to buy Energy Center 3, at 935 North Eldridge Parkway, for $275 million. Los Angeles-based CBRE reportedly marketed the building.

“ConocoPhillips routinely evaluates its lease arrangements and other real estate opportunities in order to identify and capture cost savings for the company. However, we don’t comment on specific properties or other market rumors,” said Daren Beaudo, spokesperson for ConocoPhillips. Meanwhile, CBRE Global Investors also is shopping the Marathon Oil Tower in the Galleria area, according to the same report.

ConocoPhillips reportedly has agreed to buy Energy Center 3, at 935 North Eldridge Parkway, for $275 million. The building is fully leased to the oil giant.

The Marathon Oil Tower, at 5555 San Felipe St., could sell for $300 million, which would be Houston’s biggest deal in the past 12 months, according to Real Estate Alert. Similarly, at $501 per square foot, the Energy Center 3 deal would be the highest per-foot price ever for a Houston office property outside of the Central Business District, according to Real Estate Alert.

Dallas-based Trammell Crow Co. is developing Energy Center 3, 4 and 5 alongside Des Moines, Iowa-based Principal Real Estate Investors. Houston-based Kirksey designed the buildings, and Dallas-based Balfour Beatty Construction is the general contractor. Houston-based PDR is the interior architect.

Energy Center 3 and 4 are both fully leased to ConocoPhillips. The 20-story, 548,000-square-foot Energy Center 3 broke ground in 2012 and was delivered in the fourth quarter of last year. As of June, ConocoPhillips was expected to begin moving into the building in August.

Energy Center 4 is 596,000 square feet on 22 floors and broke ground in December of 2013. The building will be complete by the end of this year, and ConocoPhillips will move into that building next April.

Marathon Oil Tower is 41 stories and 1.2 million square feet. When CBRE acquired the tower in 2013, it was 93 percent leased with 60 percent occupied by its lead tenant, Houston-based Marathon Oil Corp. (NYSE: MRO). Its total occupancy rate is roughly unchanged, according to Real Estate Alert.

Groundbreaking set for new condominium tower in Houston

Sep 11, 2015, 8:21am CDT by Paul Takahashi – 

Randall Davis Co. plans to break ground this fall on a new high-rise condominium, which is seeing brisk sales despite the oil slump.  The Houston developer and its development partner, DC Partners, expect to start construction in mid-October on Arabella, a 33-story, 99-unit condo tower at 4521 San Felipe. The condominium project, which will feature 10 units with private terrace-top swimming pools, is planned for the former site of Westcreek at River Oaks apartments near Westheimer Road and the 610 Loop in the Galleria area.

Buyers have purchased about 45 percent of the condo units inside Arabella since Randall Davis Co. began presales in April. The project — which will be built near the River Oaks District, a high-end retail development from San Diego-based OliverMcMillan — is expected to be completed in January 2018.

Houston named America’s No. 1 city by top national magazine: Oil bust no matter

Houston has landed the No. 1 spot on Forbes‘ latest annual list of America’s Fastest-Growing Cities.

“Thanks in large part to the boom in horizontal drilling and fracking, which has helped the Houston metro area add a whopping 667,800 new jobs since 2005, the energy city is an economic powerhouse: Its 4.5 percent year-over-year job growth rate is the nation’s fastest,” the Forbes report notes. “Jobs at major corporations like ConocoPhillips and Halliburton help boost the median annual pay for college-educated workers to $71,900, fourth among America’s 100 largest metro areas. Add to that an economy that grew at a 3.52-percent clip last year alone.”

The Houston metro area is expected to create 63,000 jobs in 2015, Forbes reports from stats offered by the Greater Houston Partnership. As well, some 1,500 corporate relocations or expansions have come to Houston since 2009, leased 20,000 or more square feet of office space or invested $1 million or more in capital improvements.

“When oil prices are low, Houston’s economy grows. When oil prices are high, Houston’s economy booms.”

“In the past four years, greater Houston grew by half a million people — half from moves, half from births,” the Forbes study notes. “Population growth means housing demand, and realtors sold more than 425,000 homes in the last five years, amounting to a home-closing rate of one every six minutes, according to the Greater Houston Partnership.

“What’s more, jobs boost construction, which is why last year Houston topped our list of “Building Boom Towns“: Metro areas with the most new construction.”

Forbes attributes exports as the driving force, beside oil, behind the boom, noting between 2009 and 2013 the value of Houston’s exports grew 74.5 percent, making the metro area the nation’s top exporter. Even though the falling price of oil is expected to slow Houston’s growth, the city’s economy should “chug along” with the rest of the country, the report says.

“When oil prices are low, Houston’s economy grows,” Patrick Jankowski, senior vice president of research at the Greater Houston Partnership, tells Forbes. “When oil prices are high, Houston’s economy booms.”

Houston is joined by four other Texas cities to give the Lone Star State half the moving-and-shaking cities in the Top 10.

Austin is ranked No. 2 on the list, followed by Dallas at No. 3, Fort Worth at No. 8 and San Antonio at No. 10. Strong population growth and unemployment levels under 5 percent are propelling the cities’ expansions, the report notes.

After Texas, the Golden State has the next greatest number of metro areas on the list with three: San Francisco at No. 7, San Diego at No. 16 and San Jose, No. 17.

The methodology behind the study began with taking the country’s 100 most populous cities and their surrounding suburbs and ranking the areas on six metrics. Estimated population growth for 2014 and 2015, year-over-year job growth for 2014, 2014 gross economic growth rate, federal unemployment data and median annual pay for college-educated workers determined the final results for the 20 fasting-growing metro areas in terms of population and economy.

A look at Houston neighborhoods with the most apartment construction


Recent data from apartment consulting firm MPF Research shows four parts of Houston that look to be the most vulnerable to a slowdown.

Those neighborhoods are Downtown/West Inner Loop, Greenway Plaza/Upper Kirby, The Woodlands and Katy. They have a high percentage of construction under way while already having added thousands of units in recent years, the data shows.

A slowdown, which would translate to lower rents — especially in high-end complexes, has already started in some of those areas that saw flat or declining rents last year.  Other neighborhoods expecting substantial new supply are Memorial, Spring/Tomball and Rosenberg/Richmond.

As Houston’s energy-driven economy faces a much slower year, Carrollton-based MPF recently released a mulifamily report that called Houston the “wild card for 2015.”

More than 33,500 apartments are under construction here and 23,420 of them are expected to be available this year, nearly double last year’s openings.

The following chart from MPF shows multifamily market statistics by neighborhood:
