Downtown is poised to get another high-end steakhouse when Guard and Grace opens next year in a snazzy, two-level space at One Allen Center, 500 Dallas.
Brookfield Properties, which is in the midst of a multi-million-dollar renovation of One Allen Center, announced this week it is partnering with Denver-based chef Troy Guard to bring his signature steakhouse concept to Houston, scheduled to open in summer 2019. It will be Guard’s first restaurant outside of Denver where his TAG Restaurant Group operates a variety of restaurants including TAG, TAG Burger Bar, Mister Tuna, HashTAG, FNG, bubu and Los Chingones.
"We chose to bring Guard and Grace to Houston because, similarly to Denver when we opened the first location, the city has this passion and energy that’s just contagious – we’re really excited to become a part of that," Guard stated. "The relationship we have with Brookfield continues to be so successful and collaborative that it was a natural fit when we made the decision to open up outside of Denver."
Described as a modern steakhouse, Guard and Grace features a menu that includes raw bar offerings, charcuterie, wood-fired octopus, Prime beef tartare, salads, rack of lamb, Alaskan black cod, Scottish salmon, pork chops, and a beefy lineup of Prime and Angus steaks.
Real estate company Brookfield has completed the first phase of its Allen Center renovation. Guard and Grace will be a 13,000-square-foot restaurant on two levels in One Allen Center’s new "glass box" that will provide views overlooking the property’s central lawn.
