Theo’s Greek Restaurant, a favorite late-night eatery in Montrose, will be closing its doors early in the new year. And once the doors close, everything must go.
The restaurant at 812 Westheimer is owned by Ted “Theo” Mousoudakis. In a restaurant auction notification, the ownership posted, “Ted has been in business for 12 years and is closing due to demolition of the strip center for building of a high rise.”
Recently, the Houston Chronicle reported that the demolition is part of the Montrose Collective, a 150,000-square-foot project to build three buildings of three to six stories along the north side of Westheimer on either side of Grant Street.
Theo’s Restaurant on the block east of Grant would close when construction begins, according to the report.
“Ted would like to thank everyone for the patronage of Theo’s over the last decade,” the statement added. The restaurant will be open until Sunday, Jan. 5.
The liquidation auction is set for Tuesday, Jan. 7 at 10 a.m.
