The faux lighthouse atop Christie’s gotÂ some company this week — namely,Â the giant fake beaverÂ now heralding the arrival of the second Beaver’s location, in the first and last Houston outpost of southern cheesesteak fusion shop Texadelphia. After a few years of looking around for potential second spot spots, the selection of 6025Â Westheimer Rd. was announced early this year; the new trio of Beaver’s head chefsÂ told Eric Sandler just this month that they’re planning to put ofÂ more seafood on the menu, while upping the chainlet’sÂ barbecue game.
The beaver itself got craned into place on top of a steel frame last Tuesday, with the faux-rock ledge applied afterward (the shot above is from work spotted on Saturday). The chefs told Sandler that the plan is to openÂ as soon as permitting and training wrap up in the next few weeks,Â and a Now Hiring bannerÂ was still on display over weekend:
