DESIGN DISTRICT—Matt McCallister's FT33 is taking a brief summer break. The restaurant will be closed all this week and will reopen on Tuesday, September 1. [EaterWire]

LOWEST GREENVILLE—Late-night staple Greenville Avenue Pizza Co. is getting into the brunch business. The star of the menu is breakfast calzones: a savory version with scrambled egg, potato, sausage, bacon, cheddar, and mozzarella (as well as a vegetarian variety) plus a sweet version with ricotta and berries. Mimosas are a hefty nine ounces for $3.50 and come garnished with a slice of pepperoni, because why the hell not. Brunch will be served Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. [EaterWire]

OAK CLIFF—Further cementing its status as a local hipster mecca, book store/coffee shop/bar The Wild Detectives is now serving avocado toast — err, "tostas," as they're calling them. The avocado version also includes lime-marinated tomatoes; there's also "a sweeter honey-cream cheese toast topped with poppy seeds" and half-a-dozen other varieties. [GuideLive]

PARK CITIES/UPTOWN/ADDISON—Fusion is the name of the game for Hopdoddy's newest burger special: The K-Town Belly burger tops a grass-fed beef patty with pork belly, gochujang mayo and ketchup, housemade kimchi, Korean rice crispies, and fresh basil, and comes on an egg bun or in a lettuce wrap for $13.
