PARK CITIES – Late-night barbecue isn’t exactly a thing in Dallas, but it soon will be. Sonny Bryan’s, one of Dallas’ oldest barbecue establishments, has announced plans to keep the doors open 24 hours a day at its Inwood Village location starting on May 10. The chain’s other locations will maintain their current schedule. [GuideLive]

ARLINGTON – Crunch Donut Factory, a “self-serve donut bar,” will open in Arlington this spring. Fried dough enthusiasts will be able to choose from a selection of creatively topped donuts or select their own adornments like icing and M&Ms. Crunch Donut Factory’s owners expect it to be open on Cooper Street by the end of the month. [CultureMap]

DESIGN DISTRICT – Chef John Tesar has his hands in many restaurant projects, but he should have a bit more free time in the coming weeks. Tesar has reportedly parted ways with Apheleia Restaurant Group, the ownership team behind Quill Lounge, The Royale, and Oak. After yesterday’s announcement that Joel Harrington would take over the kitchens at Oak and Quill, this news really comes as no surprise. [Escape Hatch Dallas]
