Finally Discovering Down House

Where have you been all my life?

In happier news, Washington Avenue will be getting a Sonic Drive-In around the middle of July, as reported by the Chronicle. You can't complain about another location to grab a happy hour soda and a side of tater tots or a breakfast burrito on the way to work.

The Chronicle also let us know that First Colony Mall in Sugar Land would see the opening of Tucanos Brazilian Grill June 18. Now we have another place offering meat on skewers.

Jal — The Grille, a barbecue restaurant off the Southwest Freeway, also opened in Sugar Land. The restaurant announced on Facebook that it held its grand opening on June 15.

Down House opens early and closes late which means lots of time to linger.

B4-U-Eat reports that Kemah received Skallywag Suds N Grub. We're not too sure what the restaurant's menu looks like, but it will be serving burgers and most likely potatoes in some shape or form.

McDaniel Hill, a Texas Family Cafe in Richmond closed its doors a few weeks ago, and according to Facebook, the restaurant is working on reopening as soon as it can.

Alison Cook ran into Pico's owner and chef Arnaldo Richards and got an update on his new Kirby at Richmond location. Rather than in early June as previously reported, Pico's Mex-Mex Restaurant is looking at opening around July 11.

Swamplot reports that the old Queen Burger location on West 18th Street will become Hughie's Tavern and Grill, an Asian fusion restaurant. From the looks of the restaurant's Facebook page, Hughie's is close to opening.

Another location of Spaghetti Western is coming to West T.C. Jester, but Swamplot reports that a restaurant employee says it won't be open for a few more months due to renovations.

Midtown will also host another bar. CultureMap Houston says 3rd Floor Bar is an elevated club on the...drum roll, please...third floor at 2303 Smith Street. It will feature American-made craft beers and 50 wines by the glass from its wine-preservation system. Check out 3rd Floor's Facebook page for photos of the view and progress on the location's construction.
