— A little over two years after opening in Deep Ellum, coffee and cocktail bar Drugstore Cowboy has officially closed its doors. The shop’s shutter is reportedly related to “complications and difficulties” that prevented the bar from renewing its liquor license, according to Central Track. The space at 2721 Main Street already has new owners, which means that it will soon be home to what is likely a new bar or restaurant. [Central Track]

— Brandon Cohanim, owner of Pok The Raw Bar, will open a second raw fish-focused restaurant at West Village. Called Namo, the new sushi bar will serve hand rolls and sashimi in the space formerly occupied by jewelry shop Kendra Scott, right across from Pok The Raw Bar. Namo is expected to arrive sometime later this summer. [CultureMap]

— Now that she’s settling into her new role as the Dallas Morning News restaurant critic, Michalene Busico is looking for feedback on the paper’s star-based restaurant rating system. The system has caused major ire in recent years, especially considering that it doesn’t exactly make space for more casual eateries to earn a five-star rating. Busico is accepting comments on the system via email, Twitter, and Facebook. [DMN]
