What you need to know about Casa Nomad, the new Tulum-inspired restaurant in MKT Heights

Partners Roland Keller, Tyler Barrera and Keith Doyle, the host trio behind the Wicklow Heights bungalow garden bar, have created a new coastal Mexican restaurant that is now part of the mix of dining options in the bustling development of MKT Heights. .


The Silver Deck Lounge, designed by Coeval of Dallas, seats 28 and has a vacation vibe with a rope awning, blue tile walls, and lush tropical plants. Tulum, Mexico, was the inspiration for the design.


Executive Chef Vincent Forchelli’s “Mayan-inspired” menu features crudo tuna tostadas, chicharrones served with spicy cream, ceviche, a Tajin melon salad, tamales (pork or chicken with green chili) and “Ribs” with cotija, pickled onion and buttercream. Larger dishes include the chickpea and chorizo ​​cassoulet; skirt steak with mushroom agridulce and corn tortillas; bone marrow; and market fish with salsa verde and adobo sauce. There are also tacos: grilled fish, carnitas and braised chicken.


A few wines by the glass and by the bottle, beer and a tequila and mezcal menu. The cocktail list includes creative cocktails such as Jungle Disco (tequila reposado, pineapple, serrano chili syrup and carrot juice), Te Amo (mezcal, tequila reposado, lime, cordial de Cayenne, agave, pineapple and Topo Chico) and Tuluminati (tequila reposado), dry Curacao, lime, agave and dragon fruit syrup).


“Tulum has long been one of our favorite travel destinations,” Keller said. “With Casa Nomad, we wanted to bring a slice of Tulum to Houston so that Houstonians could experience in their own backyards the bohemian vibe that makes Tulum such a special place to us.


Casa Nomad is adjacent to Partners’ new Highline Park, an upscale patio bar that will open soon.


At MKT Heights, 600 N. Shepherd; casanomadhtx.com. Open Wednesday to Saturday from 4 p.m. to midnight.
