1) Tuk Tuk Thai Two: Right when you thought that the name of North Beach's newest Thai place couldn't get any more alliterative, they go and add "two" to the end of the name. Anyway, as mentioned earlier 'round these here parts, Tuk Tuk is a new restaurant from the brothers behind San Francisco's King of Thai Noodle House and Berkeley's Tuk Tuk Cafe. It's in the former Fogon space on Union, and looks to be your standard Thai joint, with most prices under $8. It's open everyday at 11am, but more importantly, it's open late, until 1am nightly. 659 Union Street, between Columbus and Stockton, North Beach; (415) 445-7839 [Eater Staff]
2) Bar Jules: One restaurant poised to make a big splash on the Hayes Valley dining scene is Bar Jules, opening tomorrow night. Right next door to Suppenkuche off the corner of Hayes and Laguna, Bar Jules will be open Tuesday through Saturday for dinner, plus a Sunday brunch. In keeping with the mid/upscale neighborhood restaurant trend, they won't take reservations, so walk-ins only. It's from the mind of Jessica Boncutter, who has done time at Zuni and Hog Island, so modern ingredient-driven cuisine will reign supreme. Consider this a tease; much more on Bar Jules is on tap for tomorrow. 609 Hayes Street, at Laguna, Hayes Valley; (415) 621-5482, website [Eater Staff]
