Originally pitched as a gastropub from James Beard Award winner Bradley Ogden, this restaurant in the Gateway Memorial City development has found a new direction under former Trinity Chef de Cuisine Greg Lowry, who's joined Ogden Hospitality to revive the chef's flagging Houston operations. Lowry describes it as "Texas, pub-driven food" that draws upon Southern, Texan, and Mexican influences. One example: a McRib-inspired sandwich of boneless pork ribs topped with cheddar cheese, onions, and chow chow that Lowry is thinking of calling "Good Luck", as in, "good luck finishing it."

If it all comes together, Lowry will have achieved a nearly unprecedented turnaround.
