Adobe Springs Cafe, 1617 Hwy. 180 in the Pinon Plaza in Silver City, has changed hands. New owner Cynthia Shylo, of Scottsdale, Ariz., immediately began remodeling the restaurant, and plans to add some international influences to the menu. In between directing new carpeting and upholstery installations, Shylo managed to say she hoped to re-open in early June.

Expect new things at the Wrangler Steakhouse on Hwy. 180 in Arenas Valley. Deborah Nennich confirms that the casual-themed bar and grill is slated to have its rooftop dining area completed and open in the near future, hopefully in time for summer enjoyment.

The Red Barn Steakhouse in Silver City has changed its wine list. Sutter Home brand is now the house wine, and Dancing Bull red zinfandel, a favorite with steak lovers, has returned. Others featured are Yellowtail and Echelon brands, and the steakhouse will continue to carry local New Mexico wines, including the Blue Teal and Luna Rossa labels.

Un Mundo, a natural foods-oriented restaurant on Bullard Street in Silver City, has re-opened.

You want Jesus with that? The church-owned Burger & Fry Company in Las Cruces has died and gone to heaven. Also in Las Cruces eatery closings, Heart's Delight has flat-lined.

The Golden Dragon Chinese restaurant, 914 N. Pope St. in Silver City, has added sushi to its weekend menu and has applied for a liquor license.

According to Derek Farely of T.G.I. Friday's, there's no truth to the rumor that the hip and hoppin' franchise food joint is opening in southwestern New Mexico anytime soon. Quoting a company spokesperson, Farely writes, "T.G.I. Friday's has no current plans to open restaurants in southern New Mexico, though Friday's new small prototype may enable the company to enter this market in the future."

Javalina Coffee House at the corner of Broadway and Bullard Street in Silver City is now serving up the baked creations of that food entrepreneur who evidently needs no sleep, Geoff Moore of "Moore Please!" Catering.

Barb Fila, owner of Bad Ass Bakery at 300 S. Bullard St. in Silver City, at the corner with San Vicente, is now hosting live music on her back patio every Saturday, 1-4 p.m. The shop now carries a full line of lunch sandwiches and salads, along with tea, java and baked goods, of course.
