Perry’s Clear Lake relocating to more expansive location in Baybrook Mall Nov. 2015
Thirty-six years ago, the Perry family opened its first restaurant, a modest meat market on Scarsdale Boulevard in southeast Houston. A few years later, Chris Perry came to work at the market and persuaded his father Bob Perry to add tables, which eventually led to an expansion. As the markets gained popularity, Chris opened the first Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille in 1993 on Bay Area Boulevard. In November 2015, Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille will relocate its original Clear Lake steakhouse and debut the company’s newest concept at Baybrook Mall, the largest shopping center in the southeastern quadrant of Houston, and one of the prime shopping, dining and entertainment destinations in the city.
The new 10,000-square-foot restaurant will accommodate 400 guests and include design elements unique to the location and Houston-area Perry’s Steakhouses. The restaurant will provide an expansive view from every angle of the main dining room offering a glance at chef creations in the kitchen and peeks of Bar 79 through the towering wine wall. Layers of interest will be added by glass, lighting and other textures creating an environment that appeals to both men and women, distinguishing the experience from that of a traditional, stuffy steakhouse.
“This is the community where my father opened his first meat market. It’s where I learned about the business and where we opened our first steakhouse,” said Chris Perry, founder and CEO of Perry’s Restaurants. “We owe so much to our original steakhouse patrons in the Clear Lake area, and we want to say thank you. Our new location will showcase all we have to offer and perfectly complements Baybrook Mall’s commitment to providing an unparalleled experience.”
By relocating its Clear Lake restaurant to the more accessible Baybrook Mall location, Perry’s will have the opportunity to provide this unique fine-dining experience to the rapidly expanding communities nearby. Perry’s will be part of the expansion project on the north side of Baybrook Mall and the restaurant’s spacious outdoor patio will provide a view of the mall’s impressive grassy lawn, featuring gathering areas and fun community events.
Over the past decades, Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille has remained true to its roots with its butcher-fresh USDA aged prime beef and signature table-side carving presentations, including its mouth-watering, seven-finger-high pork chop. The restaurant has evolved to feature an engaging, open and airy atmosphere, a vibrant Bar 79 (named after its founding year) with an extensive wine and mixology program, and elegant private dining rooms for groups and special occasions.
In addition, Perry’s has transitioned from a regional to a national footprint bringing the award-winning experience to new fans. Today, Perry’s operates 10 steakhouse locations in Texas and two locations outside of Texas, as well as their original two Perry & Sons Market & Grille locations in Scarsdale and Friendswood. The new Baybrook Mall location provides the opportunity to bring what is now Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille to its loyal fans in Clear Lake, Friendswood, League City, and the surrounding communities.
Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille location at 487 Bay Area Boulevard will continue to serve its guests until the new Baybrook Mall location opens in November 2015. Perry’s unexpected steakhouse specialty, its famous pork chop is available at dinner daily, or part of a special three-course Sunday dinner offering. And a lunch-cut portion is featured for Perry’s Famous Pork Chop Friday Lunch from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. for $12.95, served with mashed potatoes and homemade applesauce. The steakhouse is also home to Bar 79, which offers Social Hour featuring specially priced bar menu items, wines and martinis weekdays from 4-6:30 p.m. and Sundays from 4-9 p.m.
Perry’s owns and operates five other steakhouses in the Greater Houston area – in Champions, Katy, Memorial City, Sugar Land, and The Woodlands – each offering a unique experience.
