I’ll be out of the office on Monday and won’t have a Tuesday Biz Buzz column. So, I thought I would leave you with some small bites of next Thursday’s Buzz.
• Another specialty burger joint plans to bite into the north county/Clear Lake area market.
For the uninitiated, the fast-casual restaurant Smashburger is so named because the concept smashes, sears and seasons handcrafted burgers.
• In other dining dish, Riondo’s Ristorante has opened in the island’s downtown.
The eatery, 2328 Strand, offers Italian-inspired cuisine and is in the space formerly occupied by Luigi’s Ristorante Italiano, which closed in December ahead of a move to Houston.
I’ll have more details about both items in next Thursday’s Biz Buzz.
Are you a Smashburger fan? And can anyone out there who has feasted at Riondo's share their thoughts?
