— North Loop restaurant Foreign & Domestic’s fried chicken dinners are back on Wednesdays starting tonight, Wednesday, May 31. The $25 meal comes with three pieces of the poultry with a single side (ranging from corn on the cob, cheesy polenta, to tomatoes with roe), plus pickles, honey, hot sauce, and cornbread. Chef/owner Ned Elliott teases Korean fried chicken to come in the near future.

— A fire wrecked longtime Wimberley restaurant Cypress Creek Cafe this week, causing $75,000 in damages. The cause of the fire isn't known yet.
