COMING ATTRACTIONS — In anticipation of Northern Italian Juniper’s impending opening this summer, chef Nicholas Yanes is throwing preview dinners at various Austin restaurants. First, he'll set up in Qui's tasting room on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 2-3, where reservations are $125. Then there are dinners at Barley Swine on Sunday, June 14, Foreign & Domestic on Sunday, June 28, and finally Lenoir on Monday, July 6. Tickets for those three six course dinners are $75.

CAMPUS — Blackbird and Henry is introducing its own community supported restaurant program after being inspired by the one at Lenoir. "It gives the customer a sense of ownership of a restaurant they like," executive chef Mark Schmidt told Eater. "I think of Blackbird and Henry as a neighborhood restaurant and this gives our neighbors a chance to be a part of the restaurant." Participants will receive a house tab worth $1,250 for $1,000, as well as get first dibs on reservations and events. [EaterWire]
