Cincinnati, Ohio-based franchise Tom+Chee will open its first Houston-area location at 21788 I-10, Ste. 500, Katy, in mid- to late January. The restaurant offers new approaches to grilled cheese and soup—including feature items, such as the grilled cheese donut and grilled mac and cheese.
With much of the menu made from scratch, the kitchen contains no freezers, fryers or microwaves. Gluten-free and vegetarian options are also available. 513-381-8500. www.tomandchee.com
