The Dan Marino Restaurants

The 13 restaurants that nearly made our 30 essential Texas restaurants list.

Backstreet Cafe, meanwhile, has been temporarily closed for renovations since January 14 but reopened yesterday. A source at the restaurant says that most of the changes were the sort of basic, behind-the-scenes repairs and upkeep required for a century-old house, so don't worry — Backstreet still looks exactly the same.

It was announced back in September that chef John Sheely of Mockingbird Bistro would soon be opening a second restaurant near the Galleria, in the BBVA Compass building that's currently under construction. Mike Riccetti at the Examiner has the scoop on that new restaurant — Osteria Mazzantini, named after Sheely's maternal family — which will feature Italian classics in a 130-seat space with an 80-seat patio. Riccetti even has a sample menu, with intriguing dishes like calf's brain-filled ravioli on the list. Osteria Mazzantini is slated to open at 2200 Post Oak this April.

Another food truck hit the streets last week: Craft Infusion, a mobile canteen from Troy Witherspoon — the former chef at Petrol Station — that will be serving more of Witherspoon's noted beer-based grub. Look for the truck today at Oak Forest Chill (3542 Oak Forest Drive), where it's been serving lunch and dinner since last Friday.
