Named after the herons that nest on in the century-old live oaks of North and South Boulevards in Montrose, Night Heron is Agricole Hospitality’s (Coltivare, Revival Market, Eight Row Flint) first Montrose establishment. The come-as-you-are neighborhood bar and restaurant serves small and shared plates from executive chef Jacob Pate, formerly of Coltivare and Nobie’s, and a bar program at the hands of general manager Julie Rogers, also a Coltivare alum and a Cicerone (the beer equivalent of a master sommelier).
The food highlights flavors from around the globe, particularly Southeast Asia and the Caribbean. Its approachable menu offers light bar snacks such as smoked cheese dip, curried fried potatoes and chicken mousse, and larger entrees including salt and pepper pork rib and jasmine rice congee. Night Heron also serves brunch on Saturdays and Sundays beginning at 11 a.m.
At the bar, diners will find more than 50 wine bottles with by-the-glass offerings curated by Coltivare sommelier, Jeb Stuart, as well as brews on tap, an extensive list of beer by the bottle, and the well-crafted cocktails we’ve come to expect at Agricole’s establishments.
Night Heron is open from 2 p.m. to midnight on weekdays, 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Fridays, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Saturdays, and 11 a.m. to midnight on Sundays.
