Hot dish: Those rumors simmering for days about The Reef Seafood House in Texas City are true. March 13 is the last day for the 40-year-old restaurant, an employee answering phones said. The good news is that owners of the popular La Brisa Mexican Bar & Grill are finalizing the acquisition of The Reef Seafood House building, 1301 31st 1/2 St., where they’ll open a third mainland restaurant.

Reef Seafood House owner Jerry Bulgherini in 2015 put the building up for sale with plans for retirement.
