The New York area’s only wine bar dedicated exclusively to California wines.California 88 is a wine bar set to open in the late spring of 2018 in the Greenpoint Brooklyn, New York area. Right around the corner from McCarren Park, California 88 will feature exclusively California wines, and their wine program will be truly one of a kind -- they will offer every bottle available by the taste or the glass. This means that customers can indulge in a rare $180 bottle of wine...at a tasting price of just $9. The goal behind California 88 is for patrons to become their own wine experts and learn what wines they most enjoy. California 88 will offer 88 California wines, be open Monday through Sunday, and offer locally-sourced, organic small plates, charcuterie, and cheeses, as well as weekend brunch. In addition to just being a comfortable and inviting place to meet some friends, the bar will also offer tasting classes, private winemaker dinners, and California wine country retreats.
A New fast casual hot pot concept flexibly caters to both solo diners and group dining.MUMU Hot Pot is a full-service, fast, and casual restaurant that cares about one thing: bringing a unique, delicious, and excellent hot pot dining experience to their customers.

Boiling Hot Pot has one location in Fremont and one in San Francisco, and between those two locations, sales have reached over $1.2 million in revenue per restaurant in 2017, with nearly 15% net margins. Now, hot pot lovers and solo shoppers alike can enjoy an excellent hot pot experience in the Pleasanton and Livermore area.
Next generation of the food hallBravery Hall is taking the concept of a food hall to the next level. They aim to be the first-of-its kind “chef hall,” which they envision to be a food hall -- but with a chef-driven focus. Their 9,000 square foot space will offer clients five chef-driven concepts, as well as three bars, all under one roof. The bars will include a wine bar, a molecular cocktail bar, and a patio bar. Located in downtown Houston and set to open in summer 2018, Bravery will be the anchor tenant in the new Aris Market Square high-rise, which is directly across from the Market Square Park. Bravery was created by the founders of the Conservatory Underground Beer Garden & Food Hall and Pax Americana, and they’ve already chosen chefs Gary Ly, Chef de Cuisine from Underbelly, Ben McPherson, founder of Krisp Bird & Batter, and David Guerrero, owner of Andes Café to launch three of the five concepts.
It is our mission to create beers that not only honor the pioneering history of Texas, but celebrate the adventurous spirit of a city built on outlaws and invention.The Buffalo Bayou Brewing Company (Buffbrew) is known for their creative, innovative (and delicious!) beers! Buffbrew has already established a successful brand and following in the past six years. They’re Houston’s largest self-distributing brewery, and they offer 70 innovative beers varieties. Now, after two years of getting their buffalos in a row, they want to open a taproom in Houston to dwarf all taprooms. Their vision is three stories tall and 28,000 square feet. They see the first floor embracing the immersive, picnic-tables-on-concrete feel of their current brewery; the second floor housing the main taproom with large windows that overlook the tanks, brewers, and the city of Houston; and the third floor offering a roofdeck, city-view patio experience. They plan to open seven days a week, offer over 40 beers on tap, and have a full-service kitchen.

Launching the premier soccer bar and restaurant in HoustonHouston Dynamo legend and all-time leading scorer, Brian Ching, knows what it’s like to score big on the soccer field. Now, he plans to score big in another type of the field -- the restaurant and bar field, that is. Ching plans to open up Pitch 25, a sports bar and restaurant in Houston. Named for a “football pitch” (what England calls a soccer field) and Ching’s jersey number, “25,” the 25,000 square foot restaurant and bar will offer high-end bar food, an extensive tap list, and show soccer matches (and other sports) from around the world on over 20 TVs. There will also be an outdoor beer garden. And the kicker? There’s going to be a soccer field in the restaurant itself - Pitch 25’s very own pitch! Soccer fans don’t just get to watch soccer there -- they get to play it. Guests will be able to privately rent the field, or participate in leagues, pickup games, scheduled gatherings, and mini-tournaments.
