Housed in the Teala’s space, the neighborhood cafe Emmaline will offer a day-to-night menu punctuated by coffee, cocktails and late-night bites. The restaurant is the first solo venture of Sam Governale, and it will showcase botanical decor.
Sam Governale is calling the shots as proprietor of the forthcoming neighborhood cafe situated in the former Teala’s restaurant space. The restaurateur has tapped recent NY transplant Dimitri Voutsinas (Bar Boulud, Motorino Pizza,and La Gamelle) to helm the kitchen.
The former Teala’s restaurant at 3210 West Dallas will become a new neighborhood restaurant from owner Sam Governale, formerly of Fleming’s River Oaks. Expect seasonal dining from morning to night, including late-night eats, plus coffee and cocktails.
Former Teala’s Mexican Restaurant is being transformed into Emmaline by restauranteur Sam Governale. The menu will focus on American cuisine with European refinement. “It is very much an extension of my own home, and the way I love to enjoy food and entertaining guests”, says Governale.
The Houston restaurant scene is constantly changing, with new hotspots, must-try places, and major culinary events coming along on a daily basis.
One of Houston’s most popular front-of-house personalities is leaving his longtime post to go out on his own. Sam Governale announced Monday that he will leave his role as the operating partner of Fleming’s in River Oaks.
Sam Governale of Fleming’s Steakhouse today announced plans to leave the River Oaks location, in the Upper Kirby District, early in the new year to create his own restaurant group.
