    The Troy Aikman-approved Wingstop is now open in Seattle.
    Here's a rundown of the restaurants, bars, and everything in-between that debuted and shuttered in the Seattle area this month.

    First off, in Ballard, RoRo BBQ & Grill at 6416 15th Ave. N.W. has gone out of business after less than a year's time. (The Wallingford RoRo is still up and running.)

    On Beacon Hill, The Oak has opened its doors at 3019 Beacon Ave. S. The restaurant-bar is run by the same folks who brought us beloved neighborhood hangout Redwood on Capitol Hill.

    Meanwhile, in Belltown, a new Japanese-style creperie is open at 2502 5th Ave. in Belltown. Just Crepes serves both sweet and savory crepes for six bucks and under, as well as bubble tea.

    On Capitol Hill, The Wandering Goose is now open at 403 15th Ave. E. The Southern bakery-cafe serves biscuit sandwiches, grits, and plenty of dishes that feature fried chicken. Also, a new Middle Eastern restaurant is coming to 1508 Melrose Ave. by Thanksgiving. Mamnoon will feature Lebanese and Syrian cuisine. It will also have a walk-up from which patrons can order smaller, more portable offerings. In less upbeat news for the neighborhood, Peet's Coffee at 833 Broadway Ave. has closed. The company plans on reopening the neighborhood store when the nearby light rail construction is complete -- but that's not happening until 2016.

    In Fremont, a revamped Joule is now up and running at 3506 Stone Way N. The beloved French-Korean restaurant closed its Wallingford doors in the spring, but its new space offers 36 seats, an open kitch, and seasonal outdoor seating for 20.

    Over in Magnolia, a new restaurant is taking over the former Wheeler Street Kitchen space at 3216 W. Wheeler St. at the end of this month. Tanglewood Supreme will serve upscale Pacific Rim and Mediterranean-inspired seafood dishes, made using local ingredients whenever possible.

    Pike Place Market has a new vendor: Britt's Pickles. The Whidbey Island- based business features pickles (obviously), kraut, kimchi, and more, all handmade and naturally fermented in oak barrels. Patrons can sample shots of brine to determine what flavors they like best.

    In Queen Anne, beloved neighborhood restaurant emmer&rye offers its last dinner service this Sunday. Chef Seth Caswell attributes the closure to rising costs and the vast size of the two-story building housing his two-year old restaurant. Also closing its doors in the neighborhood this Sunday is Pikabella Cupcakes at 1817 Queen Anne Ave N. The bakery's four other locations however, will remain up and running.

    In Wallingford, La Casa Azul at 1715 N. 45th St. has shuttered after just a yearlong run. Fortunately for fans of its Oaxacan cuisine, the Greenwood location is still open. Better news for residents: Julia's Bakery at 4401 Wallingford Ave. N. has reopened. And taking over the former Joule space at 1913 N. 45th St. will be a Japanese eatery called Yoroshiku.

    Lastly, over on the Eastside, Wingstop opened its first Seattle-area store at 14875 Main St. in Bellevue. The Texas-based chain is notorious for its Troy Aikman- touted wings. And it's just only getting started -- 15(!) more WIngstop locations around Seattle and Tacoma are being planned.
