— Popular Houston ice cream shop Cloud 10 Creamery will open its third local outpost in Montrose in the coming months. The shop has taken over a charming little house at 3502 South Shepherd Street, near a future outpost of burger chain Burgerim. In equally interesting news, the chain also announced on Monday that all of its locations are now “cash-free,” and will only accept debit, credit, Apple Pay or Google Pay. [Swamplot]

— Longtime Houston restaurateur Michael Cordua has parted ways with Cordua Restaurants, the company he founded 30 years ago. Both Michael Cordua and his son David Cordua, also a chef, have left the company after its investors reportedly made the decision to remove them from their positions. According to David Cordua, the investors “didn’t really understand chef-driven restaurants.” The duo have since formed their own catering company, and the younger Cordua is planning a series of pop-up dinners as they explore ideas for new restaurants.
