Openings & Closings: Fish & The Knife Finally Opens; Gigi's Closes

Categories: Restaurant News

Last week we reported that the previous location of Red Lantern would be replaced by a Creole, Cuban and Caribbean restaurant. This week, Eater reports that this fusion restaurant's name is El Gallo Rojo, which will have its soft opening today, February 14. The restaurant, located at 917 Franklin, will hold its grand opening on March 2.

If you didn't know by now, opening a restaurant can be tricky and difficult. Fish & The Knife has proven this to us several times with delayed opening dates and speculations about construction coming to a halt after the restaurant's Facebook page disappeared. But, on Monday, February 10, Fish & The Knife held a media preview event (which was supposed to be the opening day) and according to Mai Pham, the restaurant opened for business (for real this time) on Thursday, February 13.

Mo Mong closed at the beginning of the year for renovations and has emerged with a new interior, new food offerings and a new name, Dua. The 1201 Westheimer restaurant reopened on Friday, February 7, and is currently open for dinner from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday, and from 5 p.m. until 11 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.

Grab a milkshake at the new Prince's Hamburgers on the Katy Freeway.

Another Prince's Hamburgers opened on the Katy Freeway; this one is located between Dairy Ashford and Kirkwood. This I-10 location will serve all the classics, including the old-fashioned hamburgers, root beer floats (with homemade root beer), soda fountain concoctions and your favorite diner food: chicken fried steak, cobbler and stuffed French toast.

Crawfish Cafe will open its second location soon. The Cajun and seafood restaurant will open this location at 811 S. Mason Road in Katy. With crawfish season right around the corner it doesn't hurt to have another place to grab some Louisiana crawfish, along with a cup of seafood gumbo and oysters.

Did we miss any openings or closings? Let us know in the comments section and we will be sure to include them in next week's report.

there's this new spot near the intersection of woodway and chimney rock call Embers American Grille. Seems like they have a lot to offer. Great ambiance and fantastic food.

Too bad about GiGi's.  The new Corner Bakery is in the Echo Lane Shopping Center at Echo Lane and I-10.
