Owner and Operator Adrian Hembree is eager to strengthen the Grazia Italian Kitchen presence by opening the second location in Clear Lake. Grazia Italian Kitchen is known for its fresh house-made pastas, wood fired pizza, and Chef’s grilled selections, characterized by premium ingredients and new concepts to traditional entrees.

“We are blessed with the opportunity our second location will present and excited to give the community of Clear Lake the Grazia experience,” Hembree said.

With a dining capacity of 250+, this 6,000 square foot location will host an energetic atmosphere throughout. The restaurant will present a full-service wood fired pizza bar, outside patio dining and a Speakeasy-era bar.

Perfect for families, couples, and groups alike, the Clear Lake Grazia will feature the same delicious meals and friendly service that customers have come to expect. The menu will feature cooked-to-order pastas, soups, salads, wood-fired pizza and Executive Chef Steve Haug’s specialties and grilled selections.

After dinner, customers can either eat or drink their desserts, with options from house-made bread pudding to age-crafted cocktails. The Clear Lake location will serve lunch and dinner and expects an early summer opening. The restaurant will be located at 1001 Pineloch Dr. in Clear Lake.

Adrian Hembree started his career in the food service industry as a dishwasher and worked himself up to the Vice President of Sales for an Italian Food distributer. Hembree worked in developing and branding restaurants for the past ten years. While training for his first Ironman, Hembree and some friends decided to turn their dream into reality by opening up Grazia.
