The much-anticipated opening of Mr. Peeples Seafood + Steaks at 1911 Bagby in Midtown has been delayed time and time again. And after tweeting about its final touches in early March, it seems the spot has another setback.
Houston-based restaurant and entertainment giant Landry's Inc. filed suit on 26 March against the restaurant, its owner, Landmark Houston Hospitality Group LLC (which also runs 51fifteen and Hearsay Gastro Lounge), and Tim Kohler, a former general manager at Vic & Anthony's Steakhouse (a Landry's establishment).
The lawsuit — first reported by Houston Business Journal — alleges Kohler, who was fired from Vic & Anthony's last August for “performance-related reasons,” had signed a nondisclosure and noncompetition agreement during his 10 years with the company, which it argues he's now breaking.
