Celebrated Houston chef and restaurateur Monica Pope left behind the landmark local eatery t'afia in its prime to chart a new culinary adventure – a fresh start that is a result of Pope's continually evolving dialog with food, family and community.
Sparrow Bar & Cookshop is a back-to-basic…s concept that finds its story in the intimate, 1940s-era warehouse building at 3701 Travis Street, where t'afia was born and helped to re-gentrify a now bustling neighborhood. Sparrow represents a new freedom, a more free-flowing and easily sharable menu that often activates guest interaction in the final composition of dishes.
"At Sparrow, I am going to be cooking the things I would make at home for my family and friends – fresh, unpretentious and full of flavor," says Pope. "I want people to stop by without a reason or reservation, but we'll certainly accommodate that, too."Continued
