FESS TIME? Tennessee Williams was a regular at Galatoire's back in the day, so as part of the annual Tennessee Williams Festival, the Grand Dame of New Orleans restaurants is auctioning off the first floor table that he frequented. Not selling it for real, of course; just auctioning off reservations for that table during the nights of the Festival, March 22-25. The auction opens next Monday on Ebay. [EaterWire]

HOURS CHANGES? Phillip Lopez's restaurant Root announced over the weekend that it is now open on Sundays. Hours ar 5PM to 9PM. [Facebook]

MUSINGS? What with spring getting here in full force in recent weeks, this is the high season for al fresco dining, writes Peter Thriffiley, Jr in Blackened Out. Thriffiley has a brief run down of some of the ways different restaurants are helping customers get outside. [Blackened Out]
