Restaurateur Barry Katz of Katz’s Deli and Bar announced March 7 that his 20-year-old flagship Montrose location will unveil a major interior facelift in early April.
Michael Hsu of Austin-based Michael Hsu Office of Architecture designed the changes, which encompass the entire two floors of the 6,800-square-foot diner at 616 Westheimer Road, according to a press release. Steve Morse served as general contractor, a spokeswoman said.
The changes are being phased in to allow the 24/7 diner to remain open throughout the process. The first phase started Feb. 7 with the second floor, including flooring, ceiling, bathrooms, furniture and layout, the spokeswoman said. The second phase began about a week ago with the downstairs dining area, and the final phase will cover the entryway and part of the kitchen. All three phases are lasting about three weeks each.
“(Barry Katz’s) goal is to take Katz’s into the future by thoughtfully meshing the old and new, ultimately creating an environment that is more in line with the evolving needs and wants of the neighborhood’s eclectic and increasingly discerning residents and visitors,” the release states.
