BERNAL HEIGHTS—An ownership change has shaken things up at Giovanni's Pizza, which is now Giovanni's Pizza Bistro. The mom-and-pop team that ran the place has passed it along to a new family, and the space has been remodeled. We're still not quite sure what makes a pizza bistro exactly, but from what we can tell, they still have similar pizza/pasta offerings, so do let us know. [EaterWire]

SILICON VALLEY—After leaving his post as Google's food director several months back, John Dickman is climbing aboard the Apple ship: "Dickman has joined Apple in Cupertino. Apparently the makers of the nifty iPhone and iPod not only want to feed their hard-working employees better, but want to give Google a run for its money in the gourmet cafeteria arena." [FoodGal]

MILL VALLEY—Over in Marin, Tyler Florence's first kitchen retail shop officially opened, and—well, here's Tyler to tell you about it: "As a chef, I’ve been all over the world looking for the best culinary products, old and new, that I can get my hands on. My new shop will give you a first hand look at all of the great stuff I’ve come across, from French copper cookware to antique chopping blocks, and I hope you’ll stop by to see us!" [TyFloBlog]

CIVIC CENTER—The controversy continues at the Heart of the City market, and KQED's food blog brings everyone up to speed on the debate between farmers and The City: "As the oldest continuously running farmers market in the city, there’s certainly room for improvement. An overworked and underfunded nonprofit currently manages the Heart of the City Farmers’ Market. The key, though, in any type of development, is respecting all stakeholders while weighing the benefits of short-term gain against long-term goals." [BAB]

RR'S WORLDRachael Ray won a Daytime Emmy for having the best talk show, but what's even more amazing is that the first words of her acceptance speech were "HOLY CAT!" Complete video at Food Network Addict. [FNA]
