Austin's bustling food scene is getting a slice of the action with Paperboy's latest venture, Loudmouth, setting up shop in the historic Rosewood Avenue space. According to Eater Austin, the brunch favorite is expanding into evening territory, serving up wood-fired pizzas with a side of Americana this fall at the former Rosewood Gulf Coast Chop House location.

Not one to be outdone in a city known for culinary innovation, Loudmouth is dishing out not only classic pies like pepperoni and margherita but also inventive custom toppings, inspired by Italian-American flavors. Executive Chef Patrick Jackson, heralded for his cooking upbringing with his grandfather, is developing the menus along with Chef de Cuisine Seth Helmly, who brings his expertise from a laundry list of local favorites including Barley Swine and Emmer & Rye. Loudmouth's family-friendly vibe is being constructed by Furman + Keil Architects, promising a beer garden ambiance complete with picnic tables and shaded patio areas.

Those keen to get an early taste can circle June 14 on their calendars, with Daybreak Hospitality kicking off preview pop-ups at Paperboy's East 11th Street locale on Friday evenings this summer, Eater Austin reports. The Rosewood venue, a storied location created in the 1890s, has a track record of building anticipation, closing last December with a tease of a new occupant.

On the flip side of openings, Austin bids farewell to Bonhomie, the French bistro flanked by a Waffle House simplicity, which closed its doors after brunch service last May 20. Chef Philip Speer, the brains behind the concept, expressed gratitude to the Burnet Road community and the patrons who embraced their unique blend of casual and thoughtful cuisine. "I couldn't be happier with the product and service that we consistently offered to our guests," Speer told the Austin American Statesman. Details are scant, but Speer is plotting a new culinary chapter on a vacant lot at Fifth and Colorado Streets in the coming months.

For the pizza aficionados, in Central Austin, the wait is over. According to the Austin American Statesman, Home Slice Pizza has finally flung open its doors at its 53rd St. location, complete with New York-style and Sicilian square pies, Buffalo wings, and a full bar. Home Slice is laying down the dough Sunday through Saturday, with expanded hours on weekends for those late-night cravings.
