The PostHTX food hall will open in mid-November

PostHTX, the massive shopping, entertainment and dining complex entering Barbara Jordan’s historic downtown Houston post office, appears to be gearing up for opening in mid-November. Following a safety helmet tour a few weeks ago, many Instagram influencers, vendors and even Visit Houston (aka the Houston First Company) are promoting on Saturday, November 13, as the grand opening of the development. When contacted for comment, Lovett Commercial declined to confirm the date but noted that the company planned to announce more details in the coming weeks.

When it opens, PostHTX will be home to many highly anticipated eateries including award-winning Austin Salt & Time Butcher, Biochemist-backed Blendin Coffee, Hawker Street Food Bar, Saison Cellar Wine Bar, Andes Cafe, etc. like the restaurants of beleaguered Houston chef Paul Qui.

After menu refresh, March officially reopens today

One of Houston’s most luxurious tasting menu restaurants officially returns today after closing for about a month. Mars closed several weeks ago in order to undergo a menu overhaul. The restaurant, which serves six- and nine-course tasting menus, focuses on different regions of the Mediterranean. For its first menu, launched when the restaurant opened in the spring, this region was the Maghreb in Northwest Africa. The last menu highlights Andalusia and Murcia.
