— Casa Verona, a new restaurant that blends Greek and Italian cuisines, will soon open its doors at The Hill. The restaurant is expected to make its debut at the development at the intersection of Walnut Hill and Highway 75 at some point in 2019, joining a slew of recently-opened eateries at the Hill, including Tacodeli, Snooze, Houndstooth Coffee, and health-focused newcomer Bellagreen. No word yet on exactly when Casa Verona will open its doors. [EDFW]

— Dallas chocolatier Katherine Clapner will shutter two of three locations of her popular shop Dude, Sweet Chocolate. The outposts in Lower Greenville and Plano will close this weekend, and Clapner blames everything from parking to construction woes for the shops’ closures. Fortunately, the original Dude, Sweet Chocolate in Bishop Arts will remain open, and Clapner plans to introduce new flavors and events with her newfound free time [Dallas Observer]

— Brined Southern Kitchen, a Mockingbird Station Southern food spot, has closed its doors. The restaurant was a project from the same owners of Porcino’s in Addison, which shuttered earlier this month. According to a notice posted to Brined’s door, its owners failed to pay rent on the space. [GuideLive]
