Bun B hangs out with Sticky's Chicken owners Patsy and Benson Vivares.

Sticky's Chicken is now open at Sawyer Yards. Located at 2313 Edwards St., the fast-casual street food restaurant represents a jump from food truck to brick-and-mortar for owners and siblings Patsy and Benson Vivares. 

The Vivareses are known for chicken over rice, plus wings slathered in a house-made "sticky" sauce made by family patriarch Ceferino Vivares. Get them, plus loaded fries and other bites, inside a 1,500-square-foot space with seating for up to 35. The Sticky's food truck is still operating, too.

You may have heard beloved Meyerland grocery store Belden's is closing. In good news, about a dozen of Belden's employees are moving over to New York Deli & Coffee Shop and neighboring Bagel Shop Bakery, which is planning an expansion over the year. The hires include Belden's deli counter workers plus Fernando Munoz and Donna Toscano, who led the bakery at Belden's and will be baking Houston Kashruth Association-certified breads for Bagel Shop Bakery.

"Our team and the larger Jewish community in Houston will miss Belden’s​, as it has​ been a Meyerland staple," said Michael Saghian, co-owner of New York ​Deli & Coffee, Bagel Shop Bakery, and Houston Catering Concepts. ​“While we are disappointed to see this institution close, we are grateful to soon employ many of its former team members and bring in so many of the scratch-made breads, baked goods, kosher products, and deli items customers know and love."

Phat Eatery in Katy is marking Chinese New Year with an eight-course feast. The Malaysian restaurant, which recently announced an expansion of its footprint, will host a big dinner to welcome the Year of the Rat on Jan. 25 and 26. A traditional lion dance will be performed during each dinner. The menu is $38 per person; call the restaurant at 832-913-6382 to book a table.

Some serious bottles of rosé will be poured at Pappas Bros. Steakhouse downtown on Jan. 31.
