The culinary landscape of Houston’s vibrant Montrose area is about to get a touch sweeter with the introduction of Mexican Sugar, a concept known for its innovative take on traditional Mexican cuisine, set to open a new location at 3505 W Dallas St, Houston, TX 77019, according to a permit file with the state. It comes from the innovative hospitality group, FB Society, who also operates Sixty Vines, Whiskey Cake, The Ranch, Ida Claire, Haywire, and Son of a Butcher.
The new outpost of Mexican Sugar, which is taking over a generous 12,323 square-foot space, is currently under a major transformation that should deliver an immersive and upscale dining experience to its patrons. With an estimated cost of $2.8 million, the revamp will see a suite of high-end modifications, aiming to redefine the essence of modern Mexican dining in the heart of Houston.
According to the permit filed with the state, the project is not just a facelift but an extensive overhaul that will include significant structural enhancements. The ambitious plans reveal the addition of a building area on the second floor, which can be speculated to be additional dining space or private event areas. The exterior facade will undergo modifications, aligning the building’s aesthetic with the chic and contemporary brand image that Mexican Sugar is known for.
The first floor is set to receive a new slab pour, laying the foundation for what could become a bustling atmosphere of culinary delight and social interaction. Interior partitions will help craft intimate dining areas within the expansive location, while the installation of high-quality fixtures and finishes is projected to create an inviting and luxurious environment.
The heart of any restaurant is its kitchen, and Mexican Sugar seems to spare no expense in ensuring that their new kitchens are state-of-the-art. Alongside the culinary spaces, new restroom facilities are to be constructed, focusing on comfort and style.
The permit shows this massive undertaking to begin sometime in November 2023 and then completing in November 2024.
