The Dish: Bruno's, Mayfield Bakery and Cafe

1) The Fillmore: At last, longtime plywood vet Bruno's—home of the world famous chef that no one has heard of—has opened. An offshoot of a Livermore restaurant, Bruno's is an Italian restaurant/pizzeria almost directly across the street from the Yoshi's extravaganza. Thrillist has a sneak peek at the menu, and well, let's just say there's a lot going on there. As always, reports are encouraged. 1375 Fillmore Street, between Eddy and O'Farrell; (415) 563-6300 [EaterWire]

2) Palo Alto: Even though it's down the Peninsula, the title of the week's biggest opening probably belongs to the Bacchus Management folks, who have followed up their winners of Spruce and the Village Pub with the debut of Mayfield Bakery and Cafe. As you should be able to determine from the name, it's divided into a bakery and cafe. The former is run by Nancy Pitta (Hawthorne Lane, Boulevard) and will make fresh bread for all Bacchus locations in addition to selling the usual baked goods. The cafe is highlighted by a wood-fired oven and rotisserie, and given the other Bacchus properties, it should come as no surprise that the Mayfield design is a beauty (see FoodGal for some pics). The bakery is open daily from 7am-7pm daily; the cafe is open for lunch and dinner (and will start breakfast in March). 855 El Camino Real, Town & Country Village, Palo Alto; (650) 853-9200; website [EaterWire]
