THE MISSION—Inner Richmond fave Sushi Bistro is looking to open a second location, this time in the Mission. The space—a quaint one at 2809 24th Street, in between St. Francis Fountain and Roosevelt Tamale Parlor—has been chosen, but still needs the city's approval for a conditional use permit. Sushi Bistro is scheduled to go before the planning commission this week; the preliminary recommendation is approval with conditions. [EaterWire]

There will be a seasonal dessert tasting menu, a few more savory dishes, and the new menu will organized into two sections, fruit and chocolate, for both savory and sweet." [Tablehopper]
