Kenny & Ziggy's [Eric Sauseda/Groovehouse]

GALLERIAKenny & Ziggy's food will now be available all around the country. The 14-year-old Galleria-area deli is employing FoodyDirect to help send house-cured corned beef, matzo balls, smoked pastrami, stuffed cabbages and even gift packages among other offerings. Shipping costs are a flat $9.95 for parts of Texas and Louisiana where overnight UPS Ground Service is available or $29.95 for UPS Next Day Air. [Eaterwire]

ANNIVERSARY WIRE— This Saturday (March 8) Pico's Mex-Mex will celebrate its 30th anniversary at the original Bellaire location. Shortly thereafter the Richards family will announce their big move to the Kirby building that once housed Ninfa's (and the notorious, short-lived Maggie Ritas). Here is Eater's look at that move.

REGRETTE WIRE— Prompted by a Twitter conversation, the Chron's Alison Cook chose to re-visit Cafe Rabelais on a quest to find good French fare in town. This first stop was not a good one: "The food was a decidedly mixed bag, ranging from fragrant and classic snails in garlic butter on the positive end to a dry, stringy horror of hulking frog legs Provencale on the negative side of the spectrum. Three bites in, repelled by the meat's consistency and the thick red paste of sauce, I gave up on them." [Houston Chronicle]
