— Justine’s Brasserie’s annual outdoor winter tent is back for the season. This time, the theme is old Hollywood and designer Tony Duquette. The tent space, which was designed by Emily Hughes, takes on a baroque look, with golds, reds, greenery, statues, 17th-century paintings, and more. Bar à Huîtres, Justine’s winter tent’s oyster bar, is back too, featuring East Coast shells. The oyster bar is open every weekend evening until 1:30 a.m. It opened last Friday, November 24.

Former Food Network star Paula Deen is opening the first and second locations of her restaurant, Paula Deen's Family Kitchen, in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and San Antonio. The family-style menu will skew Southern; like chicken fried pork chops, fried catfish, and pot roast; for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The space will include a reproduction of Deen’s kitchen and sell retail goods. The first restaurant should open sometime in spring 2018, and the second sometime several weeks later.
