The Watermark Grill Prime Seafood, Steaks & Cocktails will open this fall in the space once occupied by Reggiano's, 18470 Stone Oak Parkway at Loop 1604.
The restaurant will feature largely American fare, as the name suggests, according to Michael Bazar, vice president of operations for Watermark, which also owns and operates Brasserie Pavil.
Scott Cohen, corporate executive chef for Watermark Hotel Co. Inc., will oversee the restaurant and is working on the menu. A website is also in the works and should be running in a few weeks, prior to the launch of the restaurant, Bazar says.
The restaurant will feature two private areas for parties in addition to the main dining room and bar.
The new restaurant will also operate the bakery that Reggiano's had started, which supplies fresh bread to many restaurants in town, he says.
"We're excited by the concept and the location," Bazar says.
