The Union Kitchen continues its Houston-area expansion with new Cypress outpos

Houston-based Gr8 Plate Hospitality is gearing up to debut its sixth Houston-area The Union Kitchen outpost in Cypress.

What began as a sole Bellaire restaurant has quickly evolved into a beloved local chain of New American fare from restaurateur Paul Miller.

Miller is simultaneously readying to debut a seventh location in Katy, as well as a new Jax Grill at Stableside at Falcon Landing in Cinco Ranch.

The Cypress location will be nestled into the The Boardwalk at Towne Lake, at the space formerly occupied by Jaxton's Grill House & Bar, 9955 Barker Cypress.

"We've been looking at the Cypress area for a long time," Miller said in a prepared statement. "Between the property, the community and the unbeatable location on the lake, it all added up to a great opportunity. We're excited to connect with the Towne Lake community, local sports teams and the Cy-Fair school district to make this a special gathering place for everyone at any time of day, whether they're looking for lunch, Happy Hour, dinner, drinks or our signature weekend brunch."

The sprawling 5,000-square-foot interior will seat 200 guests, and a 2,000-square-foot patio will accomodate 130 more diners who can enjoy of a view of the 300-acre lake. The bar area, decked out with TVs for game days, will open up to the patio area.

Chefs James Lundy and Edward Roberts, from the Washington Avenue Union Kitchen, will be at the helm.

Expect this location to debut later this month.
