Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. is now open at Harborplace. The restaurant and market takes over the old Phillips anchor space. The restaurant will be open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.
The restaurant is owned by Houston-based Landry's Inc, which refers to itself as "America's biggest dining, hospitality and entertainment company." Their holdings include casinos, resorts, hotels and such formerly independently owned restaurants groups as McCormick & Schmick's and Morton's the Steakhouse. Bubba Gump and The Oceanaire are more recent acquisitions, acquired by Landry's in 2010.
Landry's owner, CEO and chairman Tilman Fertitta was one of 21 newcomers on Forbes 2012 list of the World's Billionaires, debuting at 854.
