— Just days after the Super Bowl, the Houston Texans Grille has closed its doors. The CityCentre restaurant opened in 2011 under an agreement with the team that allowed it to use Texans logos in its branding. No reason has been cited for the shutter, but signs may point to troubles with its ownership, G3 Restaurants, which has closed similar concepts across the country in recent months. [Sports Foodie]

— After months of waiting, Potente, the upscale Italian eatery from Houston Astros owner Jim Crane, has finally opened its doors at 1515 Texas Ave. The restaurant’s sister concept, Osso & Kristalla, is set to open up next door on February 20. [Houston Business Journal]

— In order to keep things interesting, Galleria-area eatery Peska Seafood Culture is making some major changes to its menu. Per CultureMap, the restaurant has added a selection of Prime steaks and “approachable” dishes that will entice diners to keep coming back in times of low oil prices and economic change in the city.
