It's officially spring! In nature that means the bees are buzzing, the animals are all getting a little twitterpated and the flowers are blossoming. It's the season of renewal and new beginnings. The restaurant industry seems to be mirroring this sentiment with grand openings, menu updates and reinvented spaces. Here are just a few foodie news tidbits that have crossed our radar:

Finally! Fish Fish Fish is finally open! The orange and blue, retro-themed, fish ‘n' chip slinging joint has finally opened their doors.

Among the delectable offerings, Fish has chosen to introduce their wares to the public including Fish ‘n' Chips, of course, with a variety of options including haddock fillets, cod and albacore.

Indo Street Eatery owners, Buoy Ngov and Yu Nanakornphanom, have situated their sister store right next door. Chef Aaron Grissom of DOA is leading the kitchen, highlighting handmade noodles steeped in delectable broths with compelling sidekicks like nori, wood ear mushrooms, burned garlic and ginger bacon.
