LONG AWAITED ANTICIPATION
The Original Ninfa’s Uptown Houston opened in June as the long-awaited sister location to The Original Ninfa’s on Navigation, the iconic East End restaurant that has served thousands of Houstonians each week since 1973.
“Our goal from day one has been to ‘bring Navigation to Uptown’,” General Manager Tim Loftin said. “We have been working hard to achieve that goal since we opened – including bringing many Navigation veteran employees to Uptown in both the kitchen and in the front of the house. We are now very happy with the quality of the food and service, and we’re excited about people coming in to check it out. It’s going to be a great week of official ‘Grand Opening’ festivities.”
