Houston – Transwestern today announces Lúa Viet Kitchen is opening its first location at Alabama Row, a development currently under construction at West Alabama and Mandell streets in the Montrose neighborhood of Houston. Transwestern’s Alex Kelly, the exclusive advisor for Lúa Viet Kitchen, represented the fast-casual Vietnamese restaurant in its 2,500-square-foot lease.
"We really believe the market is missing a fast-casual concept that serves delicious, authentic yet modern Vietnamese food,” said Nick Nguyen, co-owner of Lúa Viet. “You will notice the difference in our food, service and brand. It was important we worked with the best advisors to help bring our vision to life."
Lúa Viet Kitchen will feature cuisine made from fresh and locally sourced ingredients. All recipes will be prepared without MSG with a focus on quality, organic ingredients. Guests will find antibiotic, hormone-free chicken and beef from 44 Farms on entrees.
"Authentic Vietnemese food is very delicious and popular,” said Mardi Do, co-owner of Lúa Viet. “We will serve traditional Vietnamese recipes and dishes but elevate the taste and food experience. We are really after robust flavors."
“We are excited to bring this fresh dining concept to Houston, and extremely honored that Lúa Viet chose Houston for its grand debut,” said Kelly. “Our restaurant advisors have worked with numerous restaurateurs on a national and local level to introduce unique dining options to the Houston community.”
Lúa Viet Kitchen is scheduled to open in winter 2017. The designer for the restaurant is MC2 Architects, known for designing MF Sushi in Houston’s Museum District.
