THE EMBARCADERO—With the opening exactly two weeks away, the next wave of La Mar Cebicheria mania should be hitting San Francisco soon enough. To whet your appetite and get the ball rolling (we hear the place is "coming along beautifully"), we'd like to point you towards the La Mar San Francisco website, now live. The menu isn't up yet, but rest assured we'll be watching. [EaterWire]

'BUCKSWIRE—As we all know, Starbucks debuted their new line of health foods yesterday. The offerings have received mediocre reviews thus far, but the main event is still en route: the introduction of the Clover machines. Now, we have word that the big San Francisco Clover launch has been pushed back to October 7th. Kindly adjust your schedules accordingly. [EaterWire]

SANTANA ROW—The annual Pear & Wine Festival will take place in Santana Row next month, because FYI, Santana Row was once a 65-acre pear orchard. The usual Bay Area festival items are on the agenda—chef demos and meet the farmers—plus one Giada De Laurentiis will be on hand. Tickets and more details right here. [EaterWire]

THE INTERWEBS—Via Eater LA comes the news that National Geographic just launched Foods of the World, a whole portal of archived magazine features, interactive maps, blogs, recipe forums and an assortment of artisan products (coffees, teas, cheeses, chocolates, oils, meats, etc.) to buy from around the world. We're particularly fond of the Cheese By Country feature. [~ELA~]

BAY AREA—Another day, another list. Imbibe has named the best places to drink in America, with the following local selections: The Trappist (one in the Best Belgians category); Salt House (Best Gastropubs); Alembic (Best International Selection); Toronado and Magnolia (Best Places to Geek Out).
