Here’s a peek at the new space of Ruggles Green, back open this week at 2305 W. Alabama St. next door to the restaurant’s original shopping center spot by Persona Medical Spa. Ruggles announced the move out of the westernmost suite of 2311 W. Alabama at the end of 2014, and the doors closed on New Year’s Day. The restaurant has now reopened in the street-facing ground floor retail space at the northeastern corner of the 5-story Gables Upper Kirby apartment midrise, which opened across W. Alabama from the less-dense Gables Waterford Square complex last year.
The scootch over to the 4,000-sq.-ft. spot gives the restaurant twice the floorspace and triple the parking, according an announcement from Ruggles Green in early 2015. The move positions Ruggles Green more directly across the street from posessive-but-vegetarian-friendly Field of Green’s Healthy Cuisine, next to The Path of Tea in the strip center just north of W. Alabama.
