— Radar Online speculates that Sandra Bullock will be the one to turn her shuttered Bess Bistro into a tapas restaurant and lounge.

— To BuzzFeed, Franklin’s [sic] means "damn good brisket," Torchy’s is "taco heaven," and Salt Lick is the "true Mecca of BBQ."

— Uchi and Uchiko chef and owner Tyson Cole told Bon Appetit about his two bloody kitchen experiences, one involving a knife under his nails and the other with an entirely missing finger section.

— Elsewhere, Cole also shared his tips for creating a thriving restaurant, including the importance of having a good chef and hospitality.

The Austin Chronicle got a glimpse into the city’s new flagship central library, which will include the cafe on the first floor, with a separate entrance. The library is still looking for potential tenants.
