Openings & Closings: Campioni Open Through Holidays and Fat Cat Creamery Finds a Home

Categories: Restaurant News

This past week, Eater posted that Prohibition in the Galleria area would be closing; however, in an updated post, Darla Guillen reported that Prohibition is actually moving to a building downtown. The new location will be at the McCrory Building on Prairie. The bar is holding a Closing Party on Saturday, December 21. The night will include a prix fixe dinner and a show by The Moonlight Dolls, as well as bottles of Champagne and a social-hour menu.

B4-U-Eat's weekly newsletter explains that the last day for Campioni on FM 1960 will be New Year's Eve. The Italian restaurant will open at 13850 Cutten Road at the beginning of January.

Commenter Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah informed us in last week's openings and closings report that Taste of Lebanon has closed. After calling the restaurant (no answer) and visiting it (no furniture inside), we can confirm that Taste of Lebanon has officially closed.

That's it for the closings announcements for this week. Let's take a look at the openings.

Ramen Jin opened softly on Thursday, December 12. Eater's Darla Guillen reports that the restaurant will focus on ramen bowls, serving six different types, including tonkotsu, miso, cold sesame, curry, veggie and tonkotsu shoyu. While the stars on the menu are the ramen bowls, Ramen Jin also offers edamame, tempura fish cake, seaweed salad and other snacks, as well as mini rice bowls.

Campioni's is the business, well worth the trip to the crime ridden land of FM1960. A real family institution, and good people.
