Here are three Inner Loop openings to know.

Chef Lance Fegen's namesake restaurant, Fegen’s, opens April 6 at 1050 Studewood St., Houston. The restaurant offers an Italian-leaning menu, with items ranging from steaks with au jus and chicken schnitzel to Neapolitan-style pizza and linguine with clam sauce. The restaurant will also feature Fegen’s Bar, which will have its own cocktail program and menu. www.fegens.com


Locally owned steakhouse Gatsby's opened in mid-March and is now serving prime steaks and seafood in the Montrose area at 4319 Montrose Blvd., Houston. The location formerly housed a B.B. Lemon location that shuttered amid the pandemic. "Gatsby's Steakhouse has been the fulfillment of a dream to open a restaurant for my friends and family." www.gatsbysteakhouse.com

After a soft opening in February, Ruggles Dessert Cafe fully opened in mid-March at 3411 Kirby Drive, Houston, according to posts by its sister restaurant, Ruggles Black. The small cafe serves up a wide range of Ruggles desserts, including keto and paleo diet options, along with soups, salads and sandwiches. https://rugglesblack.com
