The pale yellow former house at 223 Westheimer is now sitting quietly behind bars and in several piles. The 1910 Avondale home was sold last March to a corporate entity tied to down-the-road upscale tex-mex restaurant El Tiempo, and a demolition warrant was issued back in July. A reader notes that the bulldozers finally caught up to the 6-bedroom 5-bathroom structure last week, and the house was rearranged into a few ready-to-remove mounds at the last sighting.
Next door sits Georges Bistro, the not-for-sale-(unless-you’re-into-it) reincarnation of French restaurant Chez Georges. Georges and Monique Guy reopened in their former spot in 2014 after the space finished a 5-year culinary holiday across the Channel as high-end whole-hog British restaurant Feast.
