— Chef Nick Barclay makes his return to Dallas with a new restaurant called Fish & Fizz. As its name might indicate, the restaurant will focus on seafood classics like fish and chips and steamed shellfish along with other English favorites, like mushy minted peas and Cornish pasties. Fish & Fizz is expected to open at Richardson’s Promenade Center sometime early next year. [D Magazine]

— Popular barman Charlie Papaceno has taken a leave of absence from his post at Industry Alley in order to care for his father, who is dealing with health issues. While Papaceno is away, Industry Alley will be in the hands of Dallas tiki enthusiasts Marty and Jen Reyes, who are currently working on opening Swizzle Luau Lounge. Papaceno is expected to be away for two months, but the Reyes’ tiki-themed cocktails could stick around after he returns. [GuideLive]
