The year 2014 is here, and we are gearing up for a multitude of restaurants to open and bring their culinary styles to the Houston dining scene. For most, it'll be awhile before they open, but two are almost ready.

In Kaitlin Steinberg's post about the ten highly anticipated restaurants of 2014, she lists Dish Society, which was supposed to open in December 2013 but now is scheduled to open this month. The casual ­farm-to-­table restaurant "features local ingredient-driven and chef-inspired options for break­fast, lunch, dinner and brunch," ­according to its Web site.

According to the B4-U-Eat newsletter, Fish & The Knife at 7801 Westheimer might be no more. Its construction process has been long overdue — it began construction in 2010 — and the Facebook page has disappeared.

The Whole Foods at Kirby has opened an indoor bar, Kirbside Bar, according to the Houston Chronicle. The bar includes eight taps by the glass or growlers to go as well as a bar menu. The bar will hold specials throughout each week: Mondays from 6 to 8 p.m., Kirbside Bar will offer a slice of pizza and a pint of beer for $5; Wednesdays from 6 to 8 p.m., there are $3 select pints, $4 select wines by the glass and happy hour foods during Hump Day Happy Hour; Fridays from 3 to 6 p.m. will feature $3 local pints and half-price local cheese plates; and Sundays from noon to 2 p.m., they'll offer $3 mimosas. On the last Thursday of each month, from 6 to 8 p.m., Kirbside Bar's sales will benefit conservation efforts at the Houston Zoo.

No restaurants officially closed last week. However, Mo Mong has closed for renovations. The Chronicle reports that Mo Mong closed on New Year's Day to remodel. The Vietnamese restaurant has not announced a reopening date.
