— As part of the forthcoming Alabama Row development in Montrose, a new Vietnamese eatery will officially make its debut. The restaurant, called Lúa Viet Kitchen, will bring fast-casual Vietnamese fare made with locally-sourced ingredients like beef from Cameron’s 44 Farms. Lúa Viet Kitchen is expected to make its debut sometime in late 2017. [Houston Business Journal]

— Continuing its takeover of Houston’s burger scene, Hopdoddy Burger Bar will open its fourth Space City location in the Heights. Joining Ascension and possibly a new Tex-Mex restaurant from State of Grace’s Ford Fry, the Austin-based burger joint will land at the in-progress Heights Waterworks development. Look for it to land sometime late next year. [CultureMap]

— California-based Neapolitan pizza chain MidiCi will soon open its doors at 2925 Richmond Avenue on Friday, August 4. The spot is known for its focus on non-GMO ingredients and pizzas baked in an open kitchen that serves as the focal point of the restaurant. It’s the first of two MidiCi outposts planned for the Houston-area — another is set to arrive sometime this year in Katy. [EaterWire]
