Legacy Restaurants owners Niel Morgan and his son Chase have hired Anvil Partnership (which runs Anvil, Hay Merchant and Underbelly) to operate their two Houston concepts, Antoine’s Famous Po’Boys and the Original Ninfa’s on Navigation. Both concepts have been around for decades and will celebrate, respectively, their 50th and 40th anniversaries next year … A happy 42nd birthday to Los Tios, the Tex-Mex restaurant concept established by Rosemary Gambett and now owned by Gary Adair. Los Tios was reportedly the first eatery in the city to serve frozen margaritas … Gloria’s, a Salvadorian/Mexican food concept, has opened in midtown. This is the first Houston outpost for the Dallas export, which serves up dishes such as grilled pork fajitas, ceviche tostadas and black bean dip … The Brazilian steakhouse Texas de Brazil has opened a 9,000-square-foot space at CityCentre. Roaming waiters with spears packed with grilled and roasted beef, chicken, lamb, pork, sausage and more portion out as much as you can possibly consume … Under construction at BLVD Place are another outpost of the tart frozen yogurt sensation Pinkberry and True Food Kitchen, an eatery conceptualized by the famous Dr. Andrew Weil and restaurateur Sam Fox (Fox’s Restaurant Concepts). TFK concentrates on delicious healthy fare that follows the tenets of Weil’s anti-inflammatory diet. Look for a  2013 opening.
