THE SHUTTER— B4-u-eat's newsletter reports that the Bennigan's at 8401 Westheimer, the first to reopen in Houston, has already closed. A 59 Diner is reportedly expected to open in its place. Swamplot says that the chain doesn't claim to be going anywhere, in fact, the company is even planning a "comeback for its sister Steak & Ale chain, which had packed out of Houston with the Bennigan's retreat in 2008. President and CEO Paul Mangiamele is planning a 'big announcement' about Steak & Ale's future on Friday." [b4-u-eat/Swamplot]
