New restaurant roundup

fizzLittle tidbits of restaurant news have surfaced over the past few weeks that I’m not sure I paid adequate attention to. So please allow me this little restaurant roundup.

It serves a menu of appetizers, sandwiches and unique desserts from 4 p.m. until 2 a.m. Mondays through Saturdays and from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sundays. One of its coolest features: A bloody Mary bar on Sundays.

Bocco Deli opened recently in the former Zoomdweebie’s Tearoom space at 3010 E. Central. It’s owned by Nathan Toubia, son of the late Antoine Toubia, and features soup, salads, sandwiches and pasta.
