Kraftsmen is gone, but the ivy is staying at the new Eatsie Boys Cafe.
From Mobile to Mortar

At least four different food truck operators are busy making their brick-and-mortar dreams real, with one of those opening any day now: the Eatsie Boys, who have moved into the old Kraftsmen Bakery space on Montrose and totally transformed the little restaurant into something all their own. Look for favorites from the food truck itself as well as a slew of new dishes and a coffee program set up by David Buehrer of Greenway Coffee & Tea -- and, of course, plenty of E-Boys ice cream.

Pi Pizza and Bernie's Burger Bus are also scouting for permanent locations of their own, which they hope to have open this year. And that worst-kept secret? That would be the downtown location of The Modular, run by Joshua Martinez and one of his old cohorts from the truck. We'll let you guess who...

Can't Pass It Up

I've already heard people saying that The Pass -- the second part of The Pass & Provisions, which opened earlier this month -- is the best Texas restaurant to come along in years, although I've yet to go myself. Paula Disbrowe of Southern Living called The Pass & Provisions "[t]he most refined and disarmingly delicious meal I've had in recent memory." Houston food writer Joanne Witt called her dinner at The Pass the "best meal I have had in Houston this year." And my friend Peggy Lane -- who is possessed of a silver palate, and whose palate I trust implicitly -- said of chefs Seth Siegel-Gardner and Terrence Gallivan's food: recently on Twitter: "The Pass [is] exemplary in taste, texture, presentation, beverage, service. Skip the plane ticket, stay in HTX and eat here."
