After closing down for four weeks amid the coronavirus outbreak, the River Oaks restaurant Giacomo's announced it would reopen Tuesday, April 21. "We chose to close during these last four weeks to ensure that none of our staff is symptomatic. The downtime has allowed them to make sure everyone at their homes is healthy. ... With appropriate precautions and social distancing, we now feel it should be safe for us to serve the public," the restaurant wrote in an April 11 Facebook post. A limited menu will be available, along with 25% off wine, for curbside service only. 713-522-1934. www.giacomosciboevino.com
