MUSEUM DISTRICT – Make your way to Bistro Menil for Chef Greg Martin’s newly-launched afternoon tea service. The service begins with a generous pour of champagne, followed by a selection of black, green, and herbal teas, soup, and a tray of fancy tea time snacks and sweets. Until May, you can also score a seasonally-appropriate flight of five of the restaurant’s new rose offerings. Tea service is only held on Thursday afternoons from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., and is priced at a budget-friendly $25 per person.[Houston Chronicle]

POP-UP WIRE – Chef Jonny Rhodes’ Jensen Chronicles pop-up series continues with its latest installment planned for St. Joseph House, featuring a five-course tasting menu of dishes like heirloom tomato tart with green tomato ice cream, beet-black garlic flan, and other veg-forward plates. Score your tickets to the April 1 dinner for $76.95 via EventBrite. [EaterWire]

KATY – The first of five planned Bonchon Korean Fried Chicken locations planned for the Houston area will land in Katy in the coming weeks. The restaurant, known for its crispy twice-fried chicken, will open its doors at 24437 Katy Freeway sometime in April. Here’s hoping Houston is a better fit for Bonchon – the first-ever Texas outpost of the restaurant opened in Dallas in 2014, and shuttered just seven months later. [EaterWire]
