EaterWire: Delays at Fishbowl & Beretta, Plus Brunch News

TENDERLOIN—Over on the "wrong" side of the Hilton, the Fishbowl—Fish & Farm's adjacent seafood bar—has hit some delays and won't be open as soon as previously expected. According to our source, Team F&F is still working on various aspects of the contracting angles, and they are still awaiting the finishing touches (carpeting, etc.) The current opening date: "soon." Stay tuned, won't you? [EaterWire Inbox, previously]

THE MISSION—Proving once again that predicting restaurant opening dates is like hitting a moving target, delays are afoot in on Valencia and 23rd too, as Beretta has pushed back its grand opening to next week. The move is reportedly self-imposed (read: not permit related), so further delays aren't expected. The new date for the revamped Last Supper Club is next Tuesday, April 1st. More on Beretta here.

THE WORLD OF BRUNCH—A pair of big name restaurant kicked off brunch service over the Easter weekend. Not only did upscale soul food hotshot 1300 on Fillmore start a brunch service worth five exclamation points (see above!!!!!), but none other than Thomas Keller has decided to hop on the brunch train too, at Ad Hoc. From Bunrab: "Brunch at Ad Hoc is an excellent deal at $38.00 per person (ten bucks less than dinner, which includes a cheese course.) It would be a mistake to come here expecting a French Laundry type experience - it's casual, family style eating. Your coffee cup will probably not have the handle pointed at 4 o'clock, there are no tablecloths and the friendly servers are not moving with TFL precision and polish (especially on a Sunday morning after a Saturday night, this is a young group)."
