La Fisheria

The restaurant bans kids after 7p.m., and everyone on the Internet has an opinion.

Another chain, Grub Burger Bar, also recently opened a Houston branch, this one at City Centre. The fast-casual chain's burgers are reasonably priced, and the joint also offers spiked milkshakes, which actually sound better than burgers in this heat.

Swamplot reports that two new bar/restaurants are prepping spots in Midtown for fall openings. The former Opium nightclub in the Midtown Shoppes is undergoing renovations to become the 3030 Pub, while Bremond Street Grill is taking over the place left empty by El Xuco Xicana at 2416 Brazos.

Tea drinkers, rejoice! Two new tea shops have opened: Kung Fu Tea in Chinatown and McHugh TEA in Bellaire. Kung Fu makes authentic Thai tea and bubble tea, while McHugh is more of an upscale tea room and gift shop. Also, I think the name is supposed to sound like "McCutie" that just me?

According to Woodlands Online, Fielding's Wood Grill in The Woodlands has decided on a September 4 grand opening that will begin at 6:30 a.m. with a special breakfast menu. The founder, Cary Attar, describes Fielding's as "new-age American," and the menu will feature burgers, milkshakes and salads with an updated twist.

Finally, my favorite food news of the week involves a "Cupcake ATM." Oh, yeah, that's right. Sprinkles Cupcakes is bringing Houston a 24-hour cupcake machine. The first such machine debuted last year at the Sprinkles in Beverly Hills, and now the chain has locations in Chicago and Dallas as well. Ours will be way faster, though. The company's president, Charles Nelson, told the Houston Chronicle that people will be able to get a cupcake in 30 seconds, and the machine can dispense up to six cupcakes at a time. Sprinkles expects to get the machine going by September, and it will be installed outside the Sprinkles shop in Highland Village in October.
