Culinary star Heights’ new seafood restaurant flocks to Spring Branch
An award-winning Heights restaurateur is opening a new seafood restaurant in Spring Branch. Kitchen and bar at low tide will open for dinner this Monday, August 22 at 2030A Bingle Road.
Formerly the stand of downtown’s Finn Hall food hall, owner Alli Jarrett has transformed a former taqueria into a permanent home for the Carolina-inspired seafood concept. Changes include an all-new look with coastal colors and beach-inspired furnishings. Recently named Restaurateur of the Year by the Texas Restaurant Association for her leadership of Harold’s in the Heights, Jarrett sees an opportunity in bringing a family restaurant to Spring Branch.
“I’m very bullish on Spring Branch,” Jarrett said. “It is a multicultural region. It’s the face of Houston. And we’ll be one of the few restaurants in the immediate area to offer weekend brunch and weekday breakfast.
Low Tide offers a menu of classic American dishes designed to appeal to a range of tastes. Entrees include oyster nachos, corn dogs, crab cakes, and steamed mussels. Sandwich options start with four burgers — beef, shrimp, chicken, and veggie — plus a shrimp po’ boy, oyster BLT, and blackened catfish sandwich.
Appetizers include fried seafood, shrimp and grits, a bowl of pasta with a choice of protein, and sirloin steak surf and turf with grilled or fried shrimp.
Raw sea bass selections start with East Coast and Gulf oysters, as well as a Carolina-style Low Country shrimp boil. The kids’ menu covers the usual basics such as mac and cheese, sliders, and chicken nuggets.
Adults can accompany their meals with a range of beers, wines and cocktails. Cafe service will roll out in the coming weeks once the restaurant adds weekday breakfast and weekend brunch.
“Low Tide’s mission is to provide our customers with Southern hospitality and service, along with the freshest seafood available at affordable prices,” added Jarrett. “We want a fun neighborhood atmosphere where you feel like you’re eating at the beach.”
