The Statesman reports that Barley Swine in Austin is suing Miami's Barley & Swine "claiming the similarly named Florida eatery is infringing on its trademark". Back when the Miami spot was just opening, Austin's Barley Swine had already issued a cease and desist to protect its namesake. Owner of Barley & Swine, Jorge Ramos, responded by saying he would change the name to B&S if it became a problem. Time for a name change then, Mr. Ramos.
