The Sign of a New Vinoteca Poscol, Lower on Westheimer

Vinoteca Poscol, 608 Westheimer Rd., Lower Westheimer, Montrose, Houston

A new sign is up already on the building next door to Katz’s Deli, at 608 Westheimer Rd. But Vinoteca Poscol won’t be moving from its current strip-center spot at 1609 Westheimer to this new, and lower, Westheimer location until sometime after the Fourth of July, owner Marco Wiles tells Houstonia‘s Katharine Shilcutt.

The exterior of the former home of Azamian Rugs and (before that) AIDS Foundation Houston’s Stone Soup has already seen quite a few changes in its new Italian Restaurant redo, especially to the front of the house. Gone is the old single-story addition that pushed up to the sidewalk. Next to be completed: interior renovations, and perhaps an extra letter for the sign.

  • What’s the parking situation like here? IIRC Westheimer has no street parking and Lovett is restricted parking.

  • What was in this house in the early ’80’s? I remember Tila’s was where Katz is now.

  • Shady: lots of people in walk/bike distance. Or people driving into Montrose that parked in any number of spots and walked from there? Luckily the paved wasteland of parking hasn’t hit this area of Montrose.

  • Cody, this is also the one part of montrose that has restricted parking on side streets which is the primary reason people are against reducing the parking minimums elsewhere in the ‘trose (fortunately Lovett only has one part that’s restricted). As not within walking distance and long past my Numbers days I avoid this part of westheimer like the plague, sorry Dolce Vita.

  • joel: I walk from my house to Dolce, and along the way I find a lot of parking spots that could be used. There is plenty of parking — just not RIGHT in front of ANYWHERE you might want to go.
