The Dish: Tropisueno, King of Thai, Beard Papa's, More!

All openings, big and small, get served up on a regular basis by The Dish. Know of a new restaurant or bar that we've missed? Pass along your sightings.

2008_11_tropisueno.jpg1) Yerba Buena: Now open for lunch is Tropisueno, the latest eatery to hit Yerba Buena Lane. It's a few doors down from Beard Papa's, and right across the way from the Jewish Museum. For now, lunch is the only option for the taqueria-by-day, restaurant-by-night; dinner is slated to start December 1. As mentioned earlier,Antelmo Faria—who has cooked in Sonoma and Monterey—is the exec chef. UrbanDaddy has a few more details, including some thoughts on the decor ("like being on a veranda in Oaxaca"). 75 Yerba Buena, between Market and Mission; (415) 243-0299 Update: Turns out they hit some snags and aren't open yet. A tipster says they are now hoping to be ready by the weekend. [EaterWire]

2) Financial District: On Friday, we highlighted Yoppi and announced that Wednesday is the grand opening for the self-serve froyo joint. That's still the right date, but what we didn't know is that even though Wednesday is the grand opening (complete with free bags!), it technically opened over the weekend. 475 Sansome Street, at Clay; website [EaterWire]

3) North Beach: King of Thai Noodles has officially replaced the short-lived King Cha Cha in the old Citizen Thai space on the corner of Grant and Vallejo. But that's not all: in lieu of the failed soccer pub idea, the new scheme is to offer karaoke well into the late night hours. 1268 Grant Avenue, at Vallejo; (415) 391-8219; website [EaterWire]

4) Berkeley: Lastly, after a lengthy delay, Beard Papa's is finally open on Telegraph, and should be runaway hit amongst the college kids. 2399 Telegraph Avenue, at Channing; (510) 848-7272; website [EaterWire]
