LIVE TO EAT: Hull & High Water’s lunch hours debut on December 11, and other tidbits from the New Albany food and dining scene.

More on Hull’s Monday oyster special here.

Hull & High Water has been playfully hinting at new lunchtime hours, and now it’s official … as of December 11. That’s next Monday, folks.

Starting December 11th, we will officially be OPEN FOR LUNCH! As some of you may have guessed it! We are bringing back a convenient style of luncheon to New Albany, Indiana with counter style service.

Counter style service lunch allows you to come up to the counter, place your order, pay, and receive a number. One of our food runners will come out very shortly with your food hot and fresh. Get it to go or stay with us and enjoy the atmosphere. You asked for it and we are bringing it to you! Stay tuned for our lunch menu launch later this week!

A few weeks ago, a few pieces more of Dragon King’s Daughter’s prospective shift to new digs came before the Board of Works.

Dragon King’s Daughter in New Albany preparing new site, by Chris Morris (N and T)

A New Albany restaurant will be moving to a new home early next year. Dragon King’s Daughter will be leaving its current location at 202 E. Elm St. and move to 129 W. Market St.

Ryan Westphal said Tuesday after the New Albany Board of Public Works and Safety meeting that the move will come “in the first quarter” of 2018.

The board of works approved Dragon King’s Daughter for outdoor seating along the sidewalk facing West Market and First Street, improvements to the building’s facade which will include a canopy to the new restaurant, according to architect Ron Stiller.

Also in the local chain newspaper, some fine (and heartwarming) ink for Israel’s.

Israel’s Delicias de Mexico owner goes viral after son makes loving post, by Danielle Grady

Son makes loving post

All Christian Landin wanted for Christmas was for his dad to get some recognition. He ended up giving him internet fame — and some real life fans.

Christian’s father, Israel Landin, is the owner of Israel’s Delicias de Mexico restaurant on Market Street in New Albany, which opened in 2014. (Previously, Israel owned La Rosita, which closed in 2012) …

… Christian decided to make a post about Israel on the website, Imgur, where users share pictures of anything and everything — from humorous memes to snapshots of their daily lives. On Imgur, other people can give the photo “points” or make a comment …

… Christian made the post and went to bed, thinking it wouldn’t get any attention. When he woke up, he couldn’t open his phone at first because of all the notifications. As of press time, Christian’s post had been viewed 224,473 times and had received 8,211 points.

La Tiendita on Market evolves; more of a restaurant, less of a grocery, and with plans to stay put — and that’s good.
