Superica and La Lucha are back
After closing his three Houston restaurants two weeks ago, restaurateur Ford Fry will reopen his Heights spots Superica and La Lucha for takeout only. “At the time of our closure of Superica, while no one within our restaurants had tested positive for COVID-19, we felt that it was safer for all Rocket Farm employees to take the time to stay home for a full 14 days in order for us to streamline our processes and reopen without any health concerns,” Fry said in a statement. His River Oaks eatery State of Grace will remain closed for now.
Houston city council member launches pop-up kitchen to feed the needy
Houston City Councilor Letitita Plummer has teamed up with a group of business and nonprofit leaders to establish a pop-up kitchen that will bring 100 chef-prepared meals to those in need each day.
