— Vegan actor Woody Harrelson brunched at vegan comfort food restaurant Counter Culture on Sunday. According to the restaurant, he and his table ate the biscuit bowl (which comes with vegetables, biscuits, tofu scramble, and gravy), grits, beans, mushrooms, and greens.

— St. Edward's University is buying the land across the street on South Congress, which includes the building of former Tex-Mex restaurant El Gallo, which closed earlier this year. The property will probably be turned into student housing, according to Community Impact.

— A potential development project in the Arboretum could close down Manuel's Mexican Restaurant, , which is part of the Great Hills Market. There is no available timeline for the project. It would be replaced by what Statesman called a "high-turnover restaurant," along with a fast food, drive-thru spot.

— Rosen's Bagels are now available at downtown restaurant Forthright Cafe and downtown coffee shop Alta's Cafe.

— Manor Road’s Unit-D Pizzeria added weekend counter-service lunch to its lineup last week. The menu includes a variety of sandwiches, like the Italian, turkey, mortadella with chicken liver mousse on a croissant, salads, and pizza, of course. Drinks like beer shandies, micheladas, mimosas, and spritzes are also available. It runs from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

— New south Austin distillery Still Austin Whiskey Co. added happy hour to its tasting room. It includes $2 off cocktails, $3 bites from on-site trailer, the Indian-Texas Puli-Ra. It is available from 3 to 7 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays.
