Savor re-do, new at View, wine at Blue

Partner Lisa Burris at Savor Cafe says the business will be expanding into the space adjoining it, beginning in July. The new space will enable the place to add a full bar, a community table seating 16 and 24 more seats. Burris anticipates it taking about a month, but plans on closing only two days, and says they'll do a reopening party. 1404 W. Morehead St., 704-334-0098.

On the new Big View Diner menu: more appetizers, more all-day breakfast dishes, new pastries and low-fat and gluten-free items on the dessert lineup.

Big View is going to have to keep adding to the menu if they want to keep 'Diner' in their name
