The notice on Valencia: "Cafe" is the hipster mating call.
THE MISSION—A full-service restaurant is going into the old ADS Hats location on 758 Valencia. According to the architecture firm (Naylor and Chu), work just began last week, so it's still quite the ways off. The name on the change of use permits (pictured) is 758 Valencia Cafe, but that might be just a placeholder. As per normal, look for updates in the Plywood Report. [EaterWire]
THE MISSION, PART DEUX—If that brunch line at Ella's is too much for a hungover state to bear, it might be best to head over to the brand-new brunch service at Andalu. The spiced bacon has already warranted "best bacon I've ever tasted" reports. Also, don't forget about the $1 fish tacos every Tuesday night. [SF City Dish]
SAUSALITO—An EaterWire venture into Marin reveals truffle madness extends across that big red bridge. Poggio has announced its annual Festa del Tartufo, from November 14-18. The PR color: "Possessed of a potent earthy aroma and fetching as much as $3,200 a pound, tartufi bianchi are considered one of the world’s most coveted gastronomic delicacies. [Chef Peter] McNee is among a handful of American chefs who will make the trip to the medieval Piedmont town of Monforte d’Alba to hunt for and hand-select truffles to bring back to the trattoria." It's Poggio. It's the truffle festival. Seats will go quickly, so do make your reservations. [EaterWire Inbox, Official Site]
