Fuego Latino Gastropub is now open on the Georgetown Square. The restaurant opened Aug. 8 and is located at 708 S. Austin Ave., Georgetown, replacing Greenhouse Craft Food, which permanently closed its Georgetown location May 4. The family-owned and -operated establishment features a mix of Latin dishes from El Salvador, Peru, Argentina, Costa Rica and Mexico as well as cocktails from each Latin country—such as pisco from Peru and caipirina from Brazil—Latin wine and local draft beer.

Yard Milkshake Bar

The Yard Milkshake Bar opened May 25 at 940 W. University Ave, Ste. 120, Georgetown. Owner Cheri Johnson said that although the shop is known for its “Instagram-worthy” milkshakes, dessert options also include 30-plus flavors of ice cream in a cup or cone, nine flavors of made-in-house edible cookie dough, specialty ice cream pies by the slice, ice cream cakes and three vegan ice cream flavors. 512-688-3634. www.theyardmilkshakebar.com/georgetown

City Post

Georgetown residents can expect a new steakhouse, oyster bar, butcher counter, small market and event space—all in what was formerly the historic post office, which was built in the 1930s—at City Post at 113 Eighth St., Georgetown. But what is a Prohibition-era building without a speakeasy? Residents can expect that, as well. The basement is complete with a hidden entrance.
