EaterWire: Clementine Delayed, Tataki Readies

THE RICHMOND—The revamped version of Clementine will have to wait a few more days to debut, as new owner Philippe Gardelle's hopes to open tonight proved a bit overzealous. When the Eater Spot Inspection Brigade arrived on the scene recently, things were definitely not in order for an opening tonight (kindly note tables on the sidewalk, pictured). The updated ETA is sometime in the next couple days, with Thursday a strong possibility, though it's a moving target, this one here. [EaterWire, previously]

PACIFIC HEIGHTS—Things are also coming together at Tataki in the former Subway space at 2815 California Street, just off Divisadero. Hoping for an opening next week, the sushi/sake spot has new signage, a fresh coat of lime green paint and the liquor license just went through this week. In other words, they're ready to roll (see what we did there?). [EaterWire]

NATIONWIDE—In its newfound quest to stay relevant, Starbucks has decided to join the 21st century and provide free Wi-Fi, almost: "Starbucks and AT&T said Monday that they would start offering a mix of free and paid wireless Internet service in most of Starbucks's American shops, beginning this spring. The move ends a six-year partnership with T-Mobile, which did not include free Wi-Fi and charged higher fees than AT&T will. ... Starbucks said it would give customers who use a Starbucks card two hours of free wireless access a day. An additional two-hour session will cost $3.99; monthly memberships will cost $19.99 and include access to any of AT&T' 70,000 hot spots worldwide. Nearly all of AT&T's broadband Internet customers, about 12 million people, will automatically have unlimited free Wi-Fi access at Starbucks." [NYT]
