While the LA Clippers were in Houston, star guard James Harden announced the grand opening of his Thirteen restaurant in the city he spent nearly a decade in. In an Instagram post on Thursday, Harden wrote, "The wait is over! Book your reservations now."

The website for Harden's Thirteen restaurant includes a description that reads the following:

"Thirteen Houston cleverly blends traditional flavors with a Japanese flare, elevated dining, and a great time into one. From our state-of-the-art restaurant and patio, to our stunning lounge with a live DJ, exotic hookah, and innovative libations, Thirteen is sure to please. We also offer a one-of-a-kind Night Club better known as 'The Basement' with spacious sections and a private area with a two lane bowling alley and private bar. We've taken the concept of elevated dining and made it our own; #TheThirteenExperience."

Houston means a lot to Harden, and this restaurant is one of the many ways he is able to still connect with the community. Rising to superstardom in Houston as a member of the Rockets, Harden broke several records during his time there, and will always be connected to the city.

Speaking with reporters after the Clippers defeated the Rockets on Wednesday, Harden was asked if it's still special coming back to play in Houston, and said, "Yeah. Family, everybody is still here. Definitely."
