A Not-So-Moveable Feast: Sorrel Urban Bistro Wants Local Foods Only at Ziggy’s Old West Alabama Pad

The owner of the Pepperoni’s Pizza chain — which has locations in First Colony, New Territory, Pecan Grove, Riverstone, Rosenberg, Greatwood, Woodbridge, Sienna Plantation, and Fulshear — plans to open a bistro focused on local ingredients in the former Ziggy’s Healthy Grill space at the corner of West Alabama and Greenbriar. (Before Ziggy’s, the down-in-front space in the 2-story office building at 2202 West Alabama housed natural-foods store A Moveable Feast.) A sign advertising Sorrel Urban Bistro now hangs out front. Ray Salti tells the HBJ‘s Allison Wollam he expects his new farm-to-table restaurant — which will feature a new menu each week — will open up by early May, and that he’ll count both Mark’s and Haven as his closest competition. Salti also owns Ray’s Grill in Fulshear.

  • This excites me. I live around the corner from this space, and I grew up in First Colony– where my family ordered all our pizzas from Pepporoni’s. Can’t wait to try Sorrel Urban Bistro. Welcome to the neighborhood :)

  • That whole strip mall area (hate to call it a strip mall – doing it for lack of better word) has been totally vacant since Ziggys, the doctors office, and a few others (?) moved out.
    Commercial real estate scares me for that reason.
