Riel Restaurant Trying To Get Real on Fairview in Former Te House of Tea

Riel Restaurant under construction at 1927 Fairview, Montrose, Houston, 77006

French-Canadian-Ukrainian-Texan fusion restaurant Riel is still being installed at 1927 Fairview St., formerly home to Te House of Tea and Trudy’s Boutique Re Sale at the corner with Woodhead St. A reader snagged the shot above yesterday afternoon, showing the former mid-60’s retail strip dressed up in green construction fencing and still sporting that above-it-all street number signage. Ex-Reef chef Ryan Lachaine last said in September that the place should be opening some time next month.

  • Ah, i have been looking for a Ukrainian restaurant far and wide, just can’t find anyone that can cook a turnip more than three ways.

  • The “for” crowd looks like a bunch of city council members who have taken checks form HEB. What a bunch of truly pathetic losers. Looks like total AstroTurf.
