Houston’s Galleria Light, a massive chain that owns and operates restaurants, bars and shops across the city, is about to let its patrons in on a new world.
Houston’s Gallia Light, which operates under the Gallia Group, announced on Monday that it will reopen for business, with a total of 100 eateries and cafes.
Gallia’s first restaurant will be opened on Oct. 19, a day after the grand opening of the Galliama Galleria, which was announced by Gallia CEO Bill Gee on Oct 1.
Gallia Light’s owners and operators have been working for a year to renovate the Gallias flagship Galleria.
The renovations will cost about $200 million.
Galliama will reopen in mid-October with a number of restaurants that will feature new and expanded menu items.
The restaurant has been a cornerstone of Gallia for a decade, and Gee said the restaurant will have a larger menu than before, and will have more of a casual feel.
Galliamas new Galleria Gallia, which will be open during Gallia Week, will offer more upscale dining options and better menu options, including a new menu featuring grilled chicken, steak and lobster, and a menu of house-made sauces.
Gee said Gallia will be opening a new location in the historic Galleria on Westheimer Boulevard, in the same space that is currently home to the Gallium Galleria Restaurant, which opened in 2001.
Galliareal restaurants also will open in the Galliamas new space.
Gallimarieal has opened more than 60 restaurants in the Houston area, and has been awarded three Michelin stars in 2017 and one in 2018.
Gallias owners plan to open their Gallia Galleria restaurant on Oct 19, the opening day of Galliamastampark, the new Galliamatopia Galliamamark, which opens in late October.
