Look out, Larry McGuire! Houston's Liberty Kitchen Oyster Bar is opening an Austin location right around the corner from Clark's Oyster Bar. Liberty Kitchen co-owner Lee Ellis tells Eater Houston they'll be opening up in a Michael Hsu-designed space in the Gables building:
For us to go to Austin and reprise what we did here, the neighborhood accepted us so well that we thought this is what needs to be the vehicle. When Julie from the Gables came to us, she really wanted a BRC. We think it needs to be a Liberty. The place we're going to do it is in Clarksville, which is a very cool neighborhood. We're gonna make it fit into the neighborhood. Hired Michael Hsu as the architect, and he's the guy that did Uchi ? just a very cool architect to work with. They understand what we're trying to do.Oyster fight, anyone?
