PaperCity Houston: Houston Restaurant Coronavirus News — Themed Dinners, Pop-Ups, Baking Kits and Armandos’ Incredible Margarita Power

In the time of COVID-19, the Houston restaurant scene is constantly in flux as chefs and owners struggle to develop new business plans that will attract customers and aid the sinking bottom line. Themed dinners, a classy food truck, delicious takeout options and more are on the table for Houstonians stepping up to help the ailing food industry.

Clearly, the experimental Annie Café food truck pop-up last week was a success. Restaurateur Benjamin Berg announced midday Wednesday that the fine dining food truck would again be serving Chef Robert del Grande’s specialties this Thursday, April 16 and Friday, April 17 from 3:30 to 7:30 pm, and on Saturday from 11 am to 3 pm.

To encourage visits each day, the food truck will feature five to six dishes and a cocktail to-go each night. On Saturday, Hardie’s Fresh Foods will join the Post Oak Boulevard party with the Mobile Farmer’s Market, which will be selling produce boxes for $20. Add Merchant Café to the mix and those with a sweet tooth will surely want to sample a selection of their famous chocolate chip cookies. Read More.
