What's Cookin', June 10 

Jerry Barakat's reputation for constantly opening and closing restaurants remains intact after the restaurateur shut Rockston's American Bar and Grill earlier this week after opening it not six months earlier. An update on the restaurant's Facebook page promises "exciting updates of what's to come" in the space.

In other news of restaurant woes, Juanita's has announced that it will soon cut back its hours. Starting on Monday, June 21, the venerable Tex-Mex cantina will serve lunch Monday through Friday and dinner Thursday through Saturday. The restaurant's website explains the decision. "[O]ur operating costs have consistently outweighed our sales figures on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights for some time, with few exceptions. We decided that our efforts would be better spent making your dinner experience excellent three nights a week than it would be to continue trying to attract dinner customers early in the week, when fewer people are out for dinner."
