Foxsister will become Great Gold

The 24th Street restaurant from chef Brandon Kirksey will flip from its first life serving lively Korean drinking food to Great Gold, a ““modern, American-Italian, wine-focused, neighborhood restaurant,” according to Tablehopper. No word yet on when Foxsister will close to make the switch, but a help wanted ad mentions August as a targeted opening.

Boot and Shoe goes all day

Starting July 6 the Grand Ave. restaurant will offer counter service all day with coffee, tea, pastries, small plates like salmon rilletes, and large dishes like an egg and avocado sandwich. They’ll also serve beer, wine, and cocktails, plus slices of square pizza on the weekend. Hours for counter service breakfast and lunch are now 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday; weekend brunch and counter service from 11 a.m.- 3 p.m. on Saturday-Sunday.
