Portugallia and Sprouts Market
Noticed that Portugallia has closed.
Not surprising. We liked sitting at the bar and eating stuff that was new to us, but they never had much business. Admittedly we were usually there off hours, but even the bar was a little rough around the edges. The last time I was to meet my brother and a mutual friend there, he called before I arrived and said not to bother. They were out of almost everything, including olives for my martini. It is directly across Westheimer from Phoenicia, so there's really no excuse for that.
They are building out a Sprouts grocery at Kirkwood and Westheimer in the center with Spec's, Half Price Books, Rioja and Bull and Bear.
It's in the space where Oshman's/Sports Authority was.
