A roundup of food news tidbits.

ARLINGTON—DFW's one-of-a-kind "pay what you want" restaurant, Potager Cafe, has closed its doors — but it's not clear whether or not it's gone for good. Owner Cynthia Chippindale says via Facebook that "the maintenance problems of this old building have been really escalating lately," including a broken air-conditioner. She doesn't yet know whether Potager "should just stay closed or look for another location."

NORTH DALLAS—Breakfast favorite Crossroads Diner will soon be on the move, thanks to a new landlord who's raising the rent. The sticky bun slinger is relocating from Walnut Hill and 75 to the corner of Preston and Campbell in early 2016.

FORT WORTH—Cowtown bakery Stir Crazy Baked Goods has just expanded with a new location on trendy Magnolia Avenue, in the space previously occupied by Magnolia Cheese Co. Stop by for an extensive variety of pastries and desserts like cupcakes, muffins, scones, Rahr beer bread, and plenty of vegan and gluten-free items. The bakery — whose slogan is "real-ass baked goods made with real-ass ingredients" — is open until 9 p.m. during the week and 10 p.m. on the weekends to sate any post-dinner sweets needs.
