THE SHUTTER — With retirement, food science doctor Rommanee "Foo" Swasdee is shutting down nearly 30-year-old Southeast Asian restaurant Satay. The last day will be Thursday, June 16. She already has her eyes set on her next venture, though: Sumptuary, which is pegged as an "affordable, rentable restaurant." [Chronicle]

MENU CHANGESJuice Society is now the proud owner of a farm out in Dale, Texas. Dubbed Flycatcher Farm, the space will include vegetables and fruits for juices and food. Food waste from the newly-opened storefront on South Lamar and the juicing facilities will be used as compost. The space, which includes a greenhouse and animals, will eventually host events and dinners. [EaterWire]

CAMPUS — Classic restaurant The Carillon added a new menu option, where guests will be able to order three-course meals for $30, with dishes like beef tartare, seared redfish, chicken fried quail, and fried peach pie. Other entree choices, like rack of lamb and grilled prime ribeye, are available for an additional $10. The special is only available on 5:30 to 10 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, starting this month until September. [EaterWire]
