Waterman Steele Real Estate Partners Emily Durham and Lance Gilliam were proud to have represented Legacy Restaurants lead by its President and CEO Jonathan Horowitz. Travis Rodgers and Dennis Younes represented BLVD Place’s owner Whitestone REIT.
“We have been looking for a premier location for the first ‘new’ Original Ninfa’s, and we have been focused on the Galleria/Uptown area for some time,” Horowitz added. “The size of this space and its location are just what we were searching for. As for the restaurant itself, we don’t see the need to make any significant changes to The Original Ninfa’s formula – both the classic items and the exciting new additions Chef Padilla has made over the past 12 years are extremely popular with our guests. If it’s not broken, we’re not going to try to fix it.”
A new Ninfa’s isn’t the only way Legacy plans to grow the brand. The company also announced plans to open a fast casual spin-off called Mama Ninfa’s Tacos y Tortas. The first location of that concept will open in downtown’s Understory food hall in 2019.
