New in Lubbock – December 2017

While 2017 has come to an end, it’s just the beginning for these Lubbock establishments. Start the New Year with a fresh taste by trying out these new restaurants around town and a new home decor shop in the Depot District.

Something Different Grill

4317 50th St.

In the mood for something different? You’ve got a good chance of finding it at Something Different Grill. The Portales, New Mexico staple has been in business for nearly two decades and just expanded to Lubbock. Christy and Leonard Vandenberg were driving around Portales in the late nineties looking for “something different” to eat. Not finding what they were looking for, they set out and created their own restaurant. This fast, casual spot has a little bit of everything, from burgers and salads to pasta and spuds. They have an online app for take-out, and delivery within a two-mile radius.

The Farmhouse

7718 Milwaukee Ave. Suite 200

If there is one thing we’re always a sucker for, it’s a new brunch spot.  After spending his career operating restaurants here in Lubbock, Steve Gonzales caught the entrepreneurial bug and set out to start his own place. His menu is based off dishes he tried and loved through the years. The hearty portions of old-fashioned favorites start with fresh ingredients, local when possible. We tried the Southwest Benedict complete with green chilies, bacon, avocado and corn cakes – incredible. The Farmhouse is a fantastic spot for families and small groups looking for a filling meal to start the day.

The Pasta Warehouse

You want Japanese; she wants Italian; the dinner debate ensues. Lucky for both of you, the newest venture from Howard Restaurant Group (Las Brisas, Buffalo Wild Wings) solved your problem. At The Pasta Warehouse, you can customize your dish. Pick the pasta, protein and two veggies with plenty of combinations for you to choose from. Sandwiches, soups and salads round out the menu for the non-noodle lovers.
