Openings & Closings: It's the Year of the Bakery
Hubbell & Hudson Market's official last day is Wednesday, March 12, but according to CultureMap's Eric Sandler, from the looks of the market it could close much sooner. Whether it is on or before March 12, Hubbell & Hudson Market is closing. The Kitchen and Bistro are not going anywhere, though. In fact, Sandler writes that the Bistro will use part of the market's space to add private dining rooms and a chef's table for chef Austin Simmons.

Being the "year of the bakeries," it's no surprise that this week's openings and closings report has news about three bakeries.
First up is the third location for Three Brothers Bakery. Rather than a new bar opening up on Washington Avenue -- which seems to be the trend lately -- Three Brothers now has three bakeries after the opening of its third location on Monday, March 3. Just like the other two bakeries (Memorial City and Braeswood), this location will dole out its staple custom-order cakes and wedding cakes. According to a press release, the new location has a coffee program and an area for customers to make personalized cake parfaits (layers of icings and/or fillings, cookie crumbles and/or cakes). Bring your pup to the bakery, order them a gourmet dog treat, and get something sweet for yourself, then sit outside on the dog-friendly patio.
Next up is Tout Suite, the soon-to-be sister bakery of SWEET in CityCentre. Eater Houston reports that Tout Suite at 2001 Commerce will open near the end of March or the beginning of April. Along with a selection of baked goods like chocolate chip cookies and morning pastries, Tout Suite will offer soups, salads and sandwiches. The bakery and cafe will serve a selection of coffees from Greenway Coffee and will use Slow Dough Bread Co.'s bread for sandwiches.
