FIRST RETAIL BUSINESSES COME TO GENERATION PARK FIRST RETAIL BUSINESSES COME TO GENERATION PARK
Opening in the coming weeks, Bibo’s Bistro and Bar is the second concept from local restaurateurs, Jon Nguyen and Mary Huynh. Derived from their original and popular Bibo’s Cafe, the new bistro serves new twists on Vietnamese staples and includes signature fusion dishes of the original cafe, such as boba tea and pho. Distinct from the original location, the bistro at 250 Assay offers a more upscale dining experience with areas for private dining and meeting space. The restaurant will also host a full bar, including craft beer, cocktails and happy hour specials, to cater to the burgeoning business community in Generation Park. Also, marking its 24th Houston-area branch, BB&T Bank opened in Redemption Square in late March and is already hard at work serving the Lake Houston community. Currently open Monday-Friday, they will soon add Saturday business hours as well. Other businesses coming to the Generation Park area include Sub Zero Nitrogen Ice Cream and Cafe Rian. Adding to the excitement, IKEA is under contract to purchase 160 acres in Generation Park.
