Three Culinary Favs Find New Homes at Ion

The Ion and the surrounding District recently unveiled plans for three local culinary favorites slated to open in early summer 2021: Late August – a new concept by Chef Chris Williams of Lucille’s fame in partnership with Chef Dawn Burrell; STUFF’d Wings – the first brick-and-mortar location of Jarrod Rector’s eponymous food truck; and Common Bond – the newest on-the-go iteration of the well-known bistro and bakery.

“The new restaurants coming to The Ion and District showcase Houston’s deep culinary culture and local fare that Houstonians identify and connect with. We’re excited for The Ion and District to be a place that celebrates and supports Houston’s diverse entrepreneurial community,” says Sam Dike, manager of strategic initiatives at Rice Management Company, which is leading the development of The Ion and surrounding District.
