T Rex Opens
One day before Hurricane Harvey made its landfall, Justin Yu and chef Jason White opened the doors to Theodore Rex, Yu’s follow-up to Oxheart, for an invite-only friends and family service. It would have quietly opened that weekend, but, Harvey came and left feet of water and weeks of clean up. Yu and his team got the mess cleaned up, and the new restaurant officially opens to the public Friday night. In a statement issued Thursday morning, the James Beard Award winner describes his new restaurant as “in the plainest of terms, it’s a modern bistro, though more importantly I just hope that it’s a fun place to go to.” This is one you won't want to miss!
