Table Talk

The Deli-ssh sandwich shop at 801 N. Hudson St. in Silver City has been relocated and renamed. It's now primarily a Mexican restaurant, Sabor, with a full kitchen rather than just sandwich fixings; some of the favorites from Deli-ssh will still be available at the new location, 1700 Mountain View Road. Completing the restaurant musical chairs, that's the former home of Off the Hook, the defunct catfish and comfort-food eatery. Sabor will be open daily 8 a.m.-8 p.m. 388-2737.

Peace Meal in The Hub, 6th and Bullard in Silver City, is now featuring burritos and no longer serves strictly vegetarian fare. Think of the newly named "Peace Meal Burrito Bar" as a local version of the wildly popular Chipotle chain. 388-0106.

Something new and savory is baking at Millie's Bake House in downtown Silver City. Evenings from Thursday-Monday, 5-10 p.m., the daytime bakery will open to serve Chicago-style deep-dish pizza and sandwiches. 215 W. Yankie St., 597-BAKE.

Curious Kumquat will be hosting an Oktoberfest party, Saturday, Oct. 13, from 12-9 p.m., with live music and plenty of beer. And if you're planning ahead for the end of the world as we know it, tickets go on sale Nov. 1 for the Silver City restaurant's "Apocalypse Tasting Dinner," scheduled for Dec. 12. You can eat all 12 courses with no worry about calories or feeling full the next day!

Kumquat also has new simplified hours: Tue.-Sat. lunch 11 a.m.-5 p.m., dinner 5:30-8:30 p.m. (final seating). 111 E. College Ave., 534-0337.

New hours at the recently reopened Tre Rosat Café in downtown Silver City are Mon.-Fri. 11 a.m.-9 p.m., Sat. 5 p.m.-9 p.m., closed Sun. 304 N. Bullard St., 654-4919.

In the Lake Roberts area, Little Toad Creek Inn also has tweaked its hours. It's now open for dinner on Thursday and Friday, and for brunch as well as dinner Saturday and Sunday. The tavern is still open seven days a week from noon to 9 p.m. 1122 Hwy. 35, 536-9649.

Seven Silver City restaurants are participating in the Silver City Museum Society's latest "Get Mugged Downtown" fundraising event. Buy a limited-edition mug at the museum for a $15 donation ($12 for members) and then get it filled at participating eateries on Oct. 13: Alotta Gelato, the Curious Kumquat, Diane's Bakery and Deli, Diane's Restaurant, Javalina Coffee House, Shevek & Co., and Yankee Creek Coffee House. 312 W. Broadway, 538-5921.

In Las Cruces, The Bagel Shop is now open, serving 21 varieties of handmade bagels. It's an outpost of a popular El Paso bagel restaurant that's been serving schmear for a dozen years. Hours are Mon.-Sat. 7 a.m.-2 p.m., closed Sun. 1495 S. Solano Dr., 521-4784.

If cupcakes are more your thing, try the new Let Them Eat Cake in Barb's Flowerland in Arroyo Plaza. Pick from 12 different flavors along with gluten free, sugar substitute and vegan options. Hours are Tues.-Fri. 8 a.m.-5:30 p.m., Sat. 9 a.m.-2 p.m. 2001 E. Lohman, Suite 136, 649-8965.

All area codes are 575 except as noted.
