Dallas-based Front Burner Restaurants LP is poised to break ground on its first Whiskey Cake Kitchen & Bar in the Houston area and it will be located in Katy along on the north side of the Katy Freeway, just east of the Grand Parkway. (See map below)
The 8,500-square foot restaurant will open in the fall. It will be situated on a 2.5-acre tract fronting Interstate 10, with access from Grand Circle Boulevard. Whiskey Cake Kitchen & Bar is an urban farm-to-table restaurant with an open kitchen and large central bar in an industrial-style, weathered design. It specializes in entrées like mesquite grilled steak and fish, and smoked duck as well as appetizers like green tomatoes and deviled eggs and a namesake dessert, whiskey cake. The bar is stocked with 24 craft beers, 100 small batch bourbons, whiskeys and scotch and 30 varieties of wine.
“They have been reviewing the market for two years in search of the right location,” says Hugh Ruggles, vice president of New Quest Properties. “They were trying to emulate the demographics of their other locations.” Whiskey Cake is up and running in the well-established affluent suburbs of northwest San Antonio, Plano, Texas, and northwest Oklahoma City.
Whiskey Cake’s two-mile trade area has an average annual household income of $92,771 and a median age of 35. The site neighbors a 1.5-acre restaurant tract and 19-screen Cinemark in Katy Grand Square and a 900-space Park ‘n Ride lot. Already open in New Quest’s 21-acre retail project are La Madeleine, JCPenney, Slim Chicken and Red Robin Gourmet Burgers & Brews.
Parkside Capital bought the Verde Parc land in January 2014 from Indianapolis-based Simon Property Group and immediately set about master planning a first-class business park with a mix of development options, including a conference center and corporate campus.
The restaurant will have direct access from the Katy Freeway and the Grand Parkway.
