Montrose Cheese & Wine (1618 Westheimer Road, 832.380.2461), the first of three new concepts from Goodnight Hospitality, is open. Offering a rotating selection of wine, charcuterie and 12 to 15 small-production cheeses based on seasonality and availability, the cafe also features Greenway coffees and sweet and savory baked goods such as Portuguese egg tarts.... Also new to Montrose is Penny Quarter (1424 Westheimer Road, Ste. A) from acclaimed Anvil Bar & Refuge owner Bobby Heugel and chef Justin Yu. The new look (the space formerly housed Etro) for the stylish wine bar and all-day cafe involves lofty ceilings, dramatic modern light fixtures and a distinctive walnut bar. Expect coffees, egg breakfasts, small plates, cocktails and 100 wines curated by sommelier Justin Vann.... Traveler’s Table (520 Westheimer Road, 832.409.5785), specializing in elevated international fare, is taking over the shuttered Aqui spot. In the boho-style space, globe-trotting owner Matthew Mitchell is sharing his passion with elegantly plated cuisine spanning from Indian curry to pad thai and Middle Eastern flatbread. Opt for the communal “traveler’s table,” which seats 16 with a view of the open kitchen. ... Still new Lotti Dotti (601 Richmond Ave., 713.393.7422) is slinging playful cocktails galore from its two welcoming outdoor bars in the former Brooklyn Athletic Club. Sip on frozen cocktails, carafe-size drinks and punch bowls along with food from former Presidio chef Adam Dorris (try the house-cured charcuterie).... Veteran Houston chef Mark Holley, formerly of Holley’s in Midtown, is helming the kitchen at Davis St. at Hermann Park (5925 Almeda Road, Ste. A, 713.526.1663). Scheduled to reopen late fall, the menu features myriad Gulf seafood dishes and Creole specialties, along with pan Asian staples and Latin flavors.... Chef-restaurateur Ronnie Killen is bringing a new concept inside the Loop with Killen’s (101 Heights Blvd.) this fall. Gussied up Southern-style comfort food classics headline the menu, along with top hits from his other popular restos.
