Need some news you can eat? Here's a look at the latest and greatest San Antonio restaurant tidbits, from fresh menus to grand openings.

There's a new brunch menu over at Brigid, featuring items like an Italian sunrise pizza (topped with spinach, soppressata, fried egg, roasted garlic, tomatoes, and fontina); buttermilk pancakes with preserved peaches, maple cream cheese, and toasted maple syrup, and a Bogside Breakfast Burger. Available Sundays from 11 am to 3 pm.

Botika will now be doing lunch on Saturdays from 11:30 am to 2 pm, followed by happy hour from 2 to 5 pm. Lunch will be on Saturdays only; you can look forward to the farmers market-inspired menu changing seasonally and including different specials each week.

San Antonio all-star bar team will host the grand opening of its newest venture, Stout House in Helotes, on Saturday, September 17.

Happy hour will be available from noon to 8 pm daily, with daily drink, shot, and beer specials.
