Food quote: It didn’t seem appropriate earlier today to link to this story about a restaurant down the street from my office closing. (I’m quoted in it.) The original Houston’s Restaurant — the first of a successful chain of 35 restaurants — is closing. It is probably the smallest location in the chain, and I’m sure one of the least profitable. But there is still always a crowd and the food is consistently good (as fern bar food goes). I guess they’ll tear it down and build a Walgreens so there will be two Walgreens next door to each other.
