New food in the 'hood

This sounds cool.

Fall should be an exciting time on Houston's food scene, with chef Robert Gadsby's new signature restaurant--named Bedford after his hometown in England--set to open by year's end in the Heights. Bedford will join Scott Tycer's upcoming Textile, located in the 1892 Oriental Textile Mill on West 22nd, in raising the Heights area's dining profile.

Gadsby's venture will occupy new construction on Studewood at 10th Street, near chef Lance Fegen's popular Glass Wall.

I'd been wondering what was being built there. The site used to be a nondescript little building. I'm glad to hear something more interesting than that is going up in its place.

I should ask around and see if that location would be affected by the Heights' notorious alcohol restrictions, and if so how it (presumably) plans to get around them, and make the same inquiry at some of these other places. If we want to bring an Alamo Drafthouse to the Heights, we'll need to know what our options are for dealing with stuff like that.

Yes, please, lets bring an Alamo Drafthouse to the heights! I'm so there. I mean, assuming, I can get there by rail.
