Katz out of the bag: Here’s some appetizing news for all those mainlanders mourning last month’s closure of Fork & Spoon Coffee Shop, 902 Sixth St. N. in Texas City. Kat Kearns and Shy Leger, owners of the popular ShyKatZ Deli & Bakery on the island’s East End, bought the legendary restaurant, sealing the deal Monday.
The mainland restaurant is expected to reopen by month’s end as ShyKatZ Fork & Spoon. Islanders shouldn’t worry, though. ShyKatZ, 1528 Ave. L, will continue operations. The Texas City transaction merely marks business expansion for Kearns and Leger.
