It has been quite a slow week for restaurant openings and closings. In fact, there weren't any notable closings that we heard about. So, let's get right to the openings.
CultureMap Houston's Eric Sandler reports that Ranch Bakery has reopened inside Cypress's The Backyard Smokehouse. The bakery reopened on Saturday, February 1, serving its signature Texas kolaches filled with savory ingredients such as bacon and cheese, brisket and Andouille, as well as a variety of sweet fillings like bourbon peach, salted caramel apple and cherry compote. And don't worry, they still have the famous soft pretzels stuffed with bratwurst and mustard, pepperoni and mozzarella, and so much more. Barbecue and southern pastries, sweets and breads make one heck of a combination.
