Arts District wins BBQ
The Arts District is getting a new BBQ area with a bit of Tex-Mex on the side. Chef Gerald Casas, who has spent time in the kitchens of Thomas Keller, Mario Batali, Caesars Palace and Station Casinos, will be launching 1504 Breaswood BBQ on Saturday at S. Main Street. The name refers to the Houston area he grew up in, and many of the recipes he will use pay homage to his grandfather’s Tex-Mex restaurant.
Breaswood will have an open plan kitchen and about a dozen indoor seating, with seating for an additional dozen on a sidewalk patio on Main Street and a larger back patio where Casas will have live acoustic music on weekends until midnight. Marissa Hollenback will perform on Saturday and Sunday to celebrate the opening.
