1) SoMa: The Creamery's Mexican-inclined extension, Iron Cactus, debuts today with a menu serving pretty standard plates like burritos, tacos and the like. (see a .pdf menu here). As you can see, she's got a nice little wood-worked cantina vibe going on too. Open daily from 11AM to 9PM except Sunday, and Happy Hour specials run until 6PM. 683 Fourth Street, near Townsend; (415) 777-1004; website [EaterWire]

2) The Castro: Right on schedule, Panam will open in the old Frisee space this evening. It's a neo-French fusion bistro from owners Mickael Azoulay and Laurent Guillaume (Chouquet's and Blush) and will skew clubbier once late nights roll around. More on Panam can be had in the Eater Archives. 2367 Market Street; near Castro and 17th; (415) 556-6200; website [EaterWire]

3) Financial District: Opened yesterday in the FiDi corridor is Ducroix, a small French restaurant that will try to woo the downtown lunch crowd by doing classic bistro plates like quiche, mussels and steak frites. 690 Sacramento Street, at Kearny; (415) 391-7195 [EaterWire]

4) Fisherman's Wharf: On a desolate stretch of Bay Street, DeLise is finally open and serving Blue Bottle Four Barrel coffee, ice creams and the main attraction: homemade pastries from the husband-and-wife team of engineers-turned-pastry chefs who used to work at Bong Su. 327 Bay Street, between Powell and Mason; (415) 399-9694; website [EaterWire]

5) Fisherman's Wharf Bonus: Speaking of Bay, Miyabi also debuted on the same block over the weekend. It's the third location of chain and is plopped down right across the street from the Trader Joe's. 393 Bay Street, between Powell and Mason; (415) 913-7332 [EaterWire]

6) Broadway Strip: Plywood vet Urban Curry is now up and running. Keep it in mind next time you go to the Hustler Club. 523 Broadway, between Kearny and Columbus; (415) 677-9744 [EaterWire]

7) Berkeley: Finally, across the bay, Paul Arenstam (Americano) has teamed with his wife Charlene Reis and chef Greer Nuttall to open Summer Kitchen Bake Shop. According to the website, it's "inspired by [their] summer days spent on Martha's Vineyard." 2944 College Ave, Berkeley, (510) 981-0538; website [EaterWire]
