Neighborhood Food News: New Breakfast and Lunch Spots

Plus: Thaiku auctioning decor, B&O isn’t closing—yet, and more.

B & O Espresso will be around a bit longer.

Allecia Vermillion reported last week on the closure of Thaiku and Fu Kun Wu. Now, MyBallard says there will be an auction December 29 of decor, kitchen appliances, and furniture. Preview the items at the restaurant starting at 8am, the bidding kicks off at 10.

In last Friday’s Action Items, we mentioned the impending closure of B & O Espresso due to a new development. Turns out the coffee shop has reached an agreement to not shutter until the ground breaking, which means it’ll be there for most of next year, and maybe longer, says Eater says.

Another addendum to already-reported news: In addition to brunch, Terra Plata also kicked off lunch service last week.

In what may be a response to Molly Moon’s morning offerings, Old School Frozen Custard has added breakfast service. Starting at 7, the custard shop will be serving quiche, bagels, pastries, and oatmeal, along with coffee and tea.

Mezcaleria Oaxaca announced that today, the 21st, is the start of lunch service. From noon to 3 Wednesday–Saturday, try midday exclusives like memelitas, tamales de rajas, enfrijolas, and carne asada tacos, among others. Entrees range from $7 to $12; the bar will not be open, sadly. UPDATE 8PM: “Due to high demand,” bar service will in fact be offered.

All three Homegrown locations are serving up breakfast sandwiches all day, from 8 to 8. Also new: a smoked ham, Beecher’s cheese, and sage aioli sammy.
