Bad news in Houston/ 3 restaurants burned!

Bad news for patrons of Montrose blvd restaurants, in 3 weeks there have been 3 fires!
The first was the Sierra Grill in the 4800 block of Montrose, that fire was intentionally set.
Just last night, Zimms Martini and Wine bar in the 4300 block of montrose burned, they will rebuild. It was an electrical fire caused by a short in the ice machine!
Zimms is a historical restaurant, it was the 1st wine bar in Texas and the first patio bar in Houston!
The Boulevard Bistro, which I gather is right next door, sustained fire damage as a result of Zimm's fire!
As far as I know, all three will re-open.
