New, 2 comments

All the latest openings, big and small, get served up on a regular basis by The Dish. Spot a newcomer in your neighborhood? Kindly let us know; operators are standing by.

1) Nob Hill: Well, well: after a six-month hiatus due to some, ahem, rent problems, The Front Room officially made its return over the weekend. As suspected, the 40-year-old classic has been resurrected by new owners, but we're told the menu and look have stayed pretty much the same, which may or may not be a good thing. 1550 California Street, between Larkin and Polk; (415) 771-1591; website [EaterWire]

2) The Mission: We mentioned it on Friday, but Limon Rotisserie took the training wheels off this weekend. We've yet to see a menu, but Beer & Nosh has a pretty good recap of a meal there, complete with Peruvian beer, ceviche, rotisserie chicken and lots of food porn. 1001 South Van Ness Avenue, at 21st Street; (415) 821-2134; website [EaterWire]

3) Oakland: Almost solely because of the name, just had to mention the opening of O My Dawg on Second Street, not too far from Jack London Square. It's a hot dog/sausage joint and promises gourmet fries too. Is there some sort of unwritten pact that says all hot dog mongers must involve incredibly entertaining puns? 463 Second Street, at Broadway, Oakland; (510) 251-1531 [EaterWire]

4) Financial District/SoMa: Finally, a tipster sends along word of Perilla, now open in the old Sai's space near the intersection of Mission and First. All the greatest Vietnamese hits are on the menu—papaya salad, pho et al.—and mostly everything is under $8.50. 510 Mission Street, at First Street; (415) 777-1893; website [EaterWire]
