New Montrose Restaurant Moving in Next to Coming Veterinarian, Bygone Viking Bar on W. Gray

Now that construction work on the new retail structure Braun Enterprises is developing at 311 W. Gray has headed indoors, a collection of building permits up on the window near the building’s northwest corner names one of its occupants: Me’Lange Restaurant. Last spring, the Chronicle reported that a second location of Kirby fast food spot Viet’s Express would move into the new strip alongside an office of Feather & Fur Animal Hospital. Back then, the 18,221-sq.-ft. plot just west of West Gray Cleaners on the corner of Taft St. was still just a vacant lot; construction began later in 2017.

A parking lot that runs lengthwise behind the building wraps around its west side as it heads for the curb cut on W. Gray:


Just off-camera to the right is the former Ship & Shield restaurant (more formerly Byzantio’s) that shuttered last December. Braun Enterprises owns that parcel, too, but is not marketing it for lease at this time.
