Plaza Mexico opens, Barrel Thief's new dinner menu, and more.

Plaza Mexico: Now serving at 1731 W. Main St. in the former Cirrus location. Open for lunch and dinner daily from 11 a.m. Partner Enrique Lopez says the ABC license is pending, and “everything is quick and good — burritos, fajitas, tacos, whatever you want.” 278-9944.

Barrel Thief: New dinner menu includes pork-duck-orange-pistachio pA›tAc, smoked seafoods such as Finnan haddie, citrus and basil salmon, and Maine diver scallops. Also panini, salads and small plates chosen for wine-friendliness. Short Pump and Patterson Avenue locations with retail wine stores. www.barrelthiefwine.com.

The Fat Goat:  New name, cocktail menu and interior design for the former Zed CafAc at 5109 Lakeside Ave. Chef Jeff Mosca serves hand-pulled mozzarella, sourdough pizzas piled with ingredients from farmers' markets, and a select list of boutique wines. The cafAc's farm-to-table mission remains in place, but owner Lisa Granger introduces “a facelift and style redux” to the Northside spot this month. Five- and seven-course tasting menus, too. 261-5656. www.zedcafeonline.com.

Once Upon a Vine:  Just named 44th in the world by www.ratebeer.com for the shop's range, freshness and quality of beer. Richmonders have known for years that owner Bob Kocher runs a class act on Northside at 4009 MacArthur Ave.; the sister location in Stratford Hills is building its own reputation with across-the-river imbibers. www.onceuponavine.us.
