You might see some new faces at Montrose's Rosie Cannonball. The restaurant has recruited Francis Hawley— formerly of The Skylark, Public Kitchen by Jean-Georges, L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon, and Jean-Georges in New York—to be its general manager, and Sarah Crowl—formerly of Coltivare and Penny Quarter—to be its front-of-house and bar manager.

"Francis and Sarah bring such complementary skills to the Rosie Cannonball team,” said Goodnight Hospitality partner June Rodil in a statement. "It's important to us that Sarah has been so dedicated to the Houston hospitality scene—she knows and understands our community so well. Francis has worked all over the world, and he’s bringing all of that knowledge and experience to Rosie. The two of them make our team stronger and more dynamic, which, in turn, provides our guests an even better experience."

The West University location of Kenny & Ziggy's New York Delicatessen is closed, according to a report by CultureMap. Owner Ziggy Gruber tells CultureMap that the impact of Covid-19, led to the location's shuttering. The Post Oak Kenny & Ziggy's remains open.

A Houston food blogger has written a cookbook. The Chilean Kitchen comes from Pilar Hernandez, a native Chilean who moved to Houston in 2003. The book has recipes for stews, breads, salads, desserts, and more. You can get the book on Amazon and at other retailers and book-selling websites.

Here's some fun news: Better Luck Tomorrow—or BLT—is adding a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich—or a BLT—to its menu. Oh, happy day.
