Boil House, located at 606 East 11th Street in the Heights, closed just as quickly as it opened. The crawfish restaurant opened its doors on May 9, but because crawfish season has ended, Boil House decided to close until mudbugs become available again, a.k.a. next year. On June 20, Boil House posted the announcement on Facebook, "Beloved fellow Boil House enthusiast, we have decided to close for the remainder of the season but look forward to serving you the best crawfish in Houston next year."

But, in happier news, The Honeymoon opened at 300 Main Street on Monday, June 23. Currently, The Honeymoon only serves coffee from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m., but cocktails and late night libations are on the way. And when those aperitifs are offered, The Honeymoon will be the perfect spot to sip on a drink and share a house-made dessert, or cheese and charcuterie plate with friends. Until then, downtown workers can stop by The Honeymoon for their morning cup of Joe or afternoon caffeine pick-me-up.More »
