EaterWire: Bouchon on Hiatus, World's 50 Best Eateries, Free Food From BART

YOUNTVILLE—Up in Kellertown, Bouchon begins its ten-day sabbatical today, which means that diners who once balked at the portable bathrooms need not worry anymore (though we liked the look, personally). The cause of the hiatus is the Bouchon kitchen expansion, and the restaurant is expected to reopen for dinner service next Thursday, May 1st. In the meantime, reservations are still being accepted online. [EaterWire]

BAY AREA—Speaking of His Highness Keller, Restaurant Magazine has released its annual list of the 50 best restaurants in the world. Once again, El Bulli took top honors, and The French Laundry (#5) managed a spot in the top five, followed closely by its NYC offshoot, Per Se (#6). The only other American entry west of Chicago? Put your hands together for Chez Panisse, at #37. [Bloomberg]

BART STATIONS—Tomorrow morning, while yay-environment people celebrate Earth Day (has it really been a year already?), BART will shower riders in coffee for Rider Thank You Day. Via SFist: "From 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. tomorrow morning, Bay Area Fair Trade Coalition volunteers will be clogging our landfills by handing out 50,000 coupons to BART riders good for one piping-hot fair trade certified espresso from Tully's Coffee and one free half-pound of fair trade certified beans when you buy a half-pound."
