Despite signage declaring that the Joe’s Crab Shack on 600 East Riverside Drive was “temporarily closed for repairs,” the riverfront casual seafood chain restaurant is up for lease through real estate development company Endeavor. There’s another location up in Round Rock.

Voodoo Doughnut Goes Digital
Voodoo Doughnut had been famously cash-only, but now the Portland-based 24/7-hour doughnut shop will accept credit and debit cards at all of its location, which includes the Austin one on 6th Street.

Temporary Brunch Closure
South Lamar tapas restaurant Barlata is pausing its Sunday brunch service to work on some maintenance issues, but it will still open for dinner service. Brunch will come back on Sunday, April 7.

Austin Pizza Shutter
Pizzeria Saccone’s Pizza, known for its Jersey-style pies is closing on 11416 North Farm-to-Market Road 620 near the Anderson Mill neighborhood. Its last day will be on Sunday, March 31. The pizzeria is looking to reopen in a new location in Cedar Park eventually.
