Who wouldn’t want to grab a bite at James Harden’s restaurant? At this point it would be hard to imagine Houstonians going to dine at the player who quit on their city. But somehow James Harden’s restaurant will open in January as scheduled.
The restaurant is set to make its debut on January 22, according to the Houston Chronicle, inside the former Mr. Peeples space at 1911 Bagby Street. The restaurant will be helmed by chef Tobias Dorzon, a former professional football player who’s also worked as a personal chef, cooking for star athletes like Tyrod Taylor DeSean Jackson, and Lebron James.

The publicists for Harden’s restaurant said the following statement:
“Thirteen Restaurant will still be opening at the end of this month. Our entire staff and team is looking forward to providing top notch service and bringing a one of a kind dining experience to Houston. We are looking forward to sharing our extensive menu and beautiful restaurant with the city.”
What are the odds this restaurant sticks around? Not good, who the hell is going to support Harden at this point.
Might be a good idea to move the restaurant to Brooklyn.
