— Just days after the shutter of Ryan Hildebrand’s Triniti Restaurant, it looks like the chef’s newest restaurant will soon debut. Via its Instagram page, FM Restaurant + Bar (formerly known as FM Burger) announced that it will open its doors at 1112 Shepherd Rd in March. [Instagram]

— Midtown sushi standby Crave Sushi has closed its doors. Apparently, the restaurant is planning to make major changes and transition into a “full-time catering and wholesale operation,” but no details or location have been announced just yet. [Houston Press]

— Houston’s newest bar may also be its most bizarrely named. Houston Food Finder reports that Lil’ Danny Speedo’s Go Fly A Kite Lounge has opened its doors at 823 Dumble in EaDo. The bar doesn’t have its liquor license just yet, but in the meantime, you can order up beer, wine, and a rotating selection of frozen shandy. [Houston Food Finder]

— Chef Ben McPherson’s fried chicken sandwich joint Krisp Bird & Batter will soon open its doors. As Eater previously reported, McPherson will serve up naturally-raised, deep-fried yardbird in a variety of preparations (classic Southern, Korean sauced) when it opens its doors at 5922 Richmond Ave. CultureMap now reports that the restaurant’s investors are already plotting a second outpost of the restaurant, slated to arrive in the Heights at 2400 N. Shepherd Drive. [CultureMap]
