Manfred Jachmich and his partners Dinorah Barnes and Barry have opened their restaurant in Energy Corridor earlier this month. They have been veteran restaurateurs of Houston and with their latest venture in the new place of Energy Corridor the trio has invested about $500,000 in this new establishment.
Urban Kitchen - the name given to the restaurant certainly caters casual American cuisine and serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner for all those people in the Energy Corridor buildings and its neighborhood. It is a 2,500-square-foot brand new hangout with 800-square-foot patio. The restaurant is currently in a hunt to hire a head chef for smooth functioning. Indeed, it relies on the networking to market and word-of-mouth skills to see a profitable business. According to Jachmich opening a restaurant in that area was an exciting idea for their hotel business. The restaurant is located at the corner of Memorial Drive and Kirkwood Road which was earlier recognized for Ripps Grille (that closed in November).
Jachmich had his own achievements during his peak years of hotel business. He has a long lasting story in the history of Houston restaurant business. He opened his first restaurant Ruggles Grill and earned a profitable business through it before selling it. Following this he then opened Post Oak Grill, River Oaks Grill, Remington’s and Redwood Grill.
These veterans also own Ricky’s Burgers in Crosby, TX. However, the partners have recently joined the West Chase Chamber of Commerce, and are also aiming to be a neighborhood place, said Barry Barnes.
