Helen in the Heights Opens April 11 in Houston

HOUSTON, Texas – The team behind the much-praised, multi-honored Helen Greek Food and Wine are set to open their sister restaurant, the casual Greek taverna called Helen in the Heights, Houston Chronicle reports.

The new sibling, 1111 Studewood, takes the place of Arthur Ave Italian American, a concept the team closed last month after about eight months of operation. Their disappointment in the Italian concept’s failure in the Heights was met with an equal measure of excitement when the Helen team decided to rebrand the space as an extension of the Greek restaurant they opened to such acclaim.

Helen in the Heights, after a quick design turnaround, is ready to start serving up taverna-style food and drink on April 11.

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams?
