Tom N Toms Coffee is planning an outpost for the Galleria
The South Korean coffee chain hasn’t yet made its grand Houston entrance at Bellaire Food Street, but the brand is already plotting a second Space City outpost for the Galleria, according to a short video posted on Facebook. The coffee purveyor has yet to make a big splash stateside — it operates only a handful of U.S. outposts, mostly located in California, with one location in DFW. When it arrives locally, it will presumably serve up a similar menu as found in its DFW outpost, including cold and hot espresso beverages, herbal tea, and smoothies. For eats diners will find soft pretzels, pizza, cakes, fish-shaped waffles infused with red bean or custard, and breads (think French toast) topped with garlic butter or chocolate, along with customizable shaved ice desserts.
A giant sports-obsessed bar is now open in Midtown
After months of delays, Pour Behavior has officially thrown open the doors to its enormous new Midtown digs at 2211 Travis Street. The indoor-outdoor sports-obsessed destination features plenty of TVs for game watching (about four dozen) and serves up food like pizzas and burgers with fries. It’s one of two recent openings for partner Roveen Abante, who also welcomes a new underground cocktail bar at Downtown’s Understory today. According to its Instagram account, Pour Behavior is open from Tuesday through Thursday 4 p.m. to 12 a.m., Friday and Saturday 4 p.m. to 2 a.m.
A new pizzeria is headed to Finn Hall
Pizza Zquare is coming to Finn Hall to fill the void left by Mr. Nice Pie when it departed the food hall about four months ago, reports Houstonia. The new pie-slinging outpost will serve up traditional pizzas topped with pepperoni and prosciutto, as well as some inventive toppings like “loaded baked potato” and barbecue pulled pork. Sandwiches, salads, and desserts will also be on offer. The magazine reports that the pizzeria is influenced by owner Francisco Sierra’s trips to Italy.
