The Riverbend’s Momo restaurant will bring together ramen and poke, two of the nations trendiest foods, when it throws open its doors this Tuesday, March 20 at 11 a.m. in the Carrollton Avenue corner spot that saw O’Henry’s dishing out burgers for decades, according to the business’s Facebook page.
Owner Tony Zheng, who formerly operated Sake Cafe Uptown, has combined concepts in the past, namely when he opened Houston’s now-shuttered Fish & The Knife, a highly-anticipated but ultimately “confusing” sushi restaurant and nightclub mix with lauded New Orleans chef Bob Iacovone helming the kitchen. (Iacovone opened Iacavone’s Kitchen on Freret Street in 2017.) Poke and ramen are probably a better mash-up though.
Momo restaurant will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
