The end of the week brings a flurry of openings served up by The Dish, your source for the latest and great openings. As always, your sightings are appreciated.
1) Russian Hill: After being shuttered for about eight months, tonight (superstition be damned) is opening night for Cossu, the new incarnation of Pasha. There's a new look and direction, and overhauled menu, now online, bills itself as Moroccan, Asian and California so we'll see how this goes. 1516 Broadway, at Polk; (415) 885-4477; website [EaterWire]
2) Pacific Heights: After a stint on the delaywire, the Fillmore Grill's space's evolution into Long Bar & Bistro finally finished yesterday. The high-ceilinged space is decked out in mahogany and the layout—bar along one wall, elevated tables along the other—is not unlike Harry's down the road, although in the earlygoing, Long Bar hedges closer to the restaurant side of things. 2298 Fillmore Street, at Clay; (415) 440-1700 [EaterWire]
3) Hayes Valley: Last night was also opening night for Buck Tavern, the new bar right across the street from Zuni Cafe. The owners are Mark Landregan and Michael Gouddou, the same pair behind the Gallery Lounge and Dada, but Buck Tavern will be more of a traditional tavern, complete with pub grub and microbrews. And we still think it could be a pornstar's name. 1655 Market Street, between 12th and Gough [EaterWire]
4) North Beach: A quick turnaround has gone down at the former Palermo Deli: less than a fortnight after the initial shuttering, it is already reborn as La Spiaggia, with an entire menu of specialty and grilled sandwiches. Palermo faithful, tell us what you think. 1556 Stockton Street, near Union; (415) 362-3354 [EaterWire]
5) The Fillmore: More sandwich shoppery: Upper Crust Deli has made the successful migration from Pacifica and is currently open in the shuttered Cocina Poblana space. 1109 Fillmore Street, at Golden Gate Avenue; (415) 674-1301 [EaterWire]
6) Oakland: Via the Wine Section: "Water Lounge and Raw Bar opened Tuesday in what used to be Pearl Oyster Bar in Oakland's Rockridge neighborhood. While the interior and surroundings are reminiscent of Pearl with its glowing bar, movies and blue-green walls covered in artwork, the concept has taken a decidedly new turn, focusing on cocktails, a raw bar with oysters, and small plates." 5634 College Avenue, at Keith; (510) 654-5426; website [Chron]
