With Tropical Storm Nicholas set to make landfall on the Texas Gulf Coast on Monday, a number of Houston restaurants are planning to close their doors for a day or two in an effort to keep workers and diners safe. According to Space City Weather, Nicholas’s impact is likely to be strongest in Houston overnight, which could result in flooding or power outages.

Over the next few days, Eater Houston will be tracking the establishments that plan to close or close early as Tropical Storm Nicholas approaches. Stay tuned to this space for more information as it becomes available.
