DIVISION/CLINTON—Nick Zukin's guisados spot Mi Mero Mole has announced an expanded menu that now features onetime daily specials as permanent options. In addition to a tamale of the day, Zukin will serve up ceviche, frijoles charros ("cowboy beans" stewed with tomatoes, onions, chiles, chorizo, and bacon), and Oaxacan memelas, described as "a cross between a sope and huarache." Changes are in effect now. [EaterWire]

NORTHWEST/ALPHABET DISTRICT—The recent menu revamp at Scott Dolich's NW tavern the Bent Brick meant a happy hour menu revamp was on the way, too, and here it is: The spot's new happy hour separates bites by price — ranging from $1 to $6 — with options like smoked salmon chips (on the low end), oyster mushroom salads, and steelhead roe tea sandwiches. Happy hour is now available from 4-6:30p.m., seven days a week. [EaterWire]
