Houston Chronicle : Katz’s Deli to open in the Heights in fall 2020

Houston’s favorite deli that “never kloses” (that should be a hint) will have a new location to serve around the clock.

Katz’s Deli, the Montrose staple known for its hardy breakfast plates, homemade soups, burgers and New York deli-style sandwiches, has announced it will open a second Houston location at 2200 N. Shepherd in the Heights. Like the original deli on lower Westheimer (adorned with the neon sign “Katz’s Never Kloses”) and its sister restaurant in the Woodlands, the Heights Katz will also be open 24 hours. Fall 2020 is the projected opening.

“The spirit of what we are doing is being led by our passion to be our best with our staff, food, service, and design,” owner Barry Katz said in a statement.

As far as the design, Katz has tapped noted Austin architectural firm Michael Hsu Office of Architecture to design the new restaurant that will have the look and feel of a bustling New York deli. The new deli will have seating for about 130 guests.

The announcement comes about two years after Katz overhauled the Westheimer store with a major redesign and menu upgrade to mark that location’s 20th anniversary.
