2008_12_aqua.jpgSAN FRANCISCO—Yesterday, the Board of Supervisors passed that spur-of-the-moment resolution that commends San Francisco restaurants for removing foie gras before the big ban in three years. Sigh. Here's hoping the supes do some homework before 2012. [SJMN]

SAN FRANCISCO—On a related note, the supes did make it slightly easier for restaurants to participate in this weekend's Earth Hour. [SFE]

FINANCIAL DISTRICT—When Aqua discontinued lunch service in January, many eyebrows were raised, but yesterday in the restaurant's monthly newsletter, Aqua announced that it would be starting lunch again starting this week, but only on Fridays. They are also trying out a "Late Supper" menu concept every evening after 8:30. [EaterWire]

YOUNTVILLE—Up north, Brix passes along word that each Sunday afternoon, they are now hosting a Wine Social. Every Sunday from 4pm to 7pm, guests can drink their wine without a corkage fee in the bar or on the patio. And should you be so inclined, there's also the option of a “Sunday Supper”, a prix fixe family style meal, $28 per person. [EaterWire]

PAC HEIGHTS—Fresh off his Chronicle Rising Star honors, Louis Maldonado is starting a Sunday brunch at Cafe Majestic. The Laundry vet has some intriguing dishes on the menu too: cereal crusted french toast, filet bean "cassoulet" bacon, and more. [EaterWire]

THE MARINA—Can't get into the Tipsy Pig? Cafe Maritime tells us that they offer $1 oysters every Monday. So, there's that. [EaterWire]
