New, 3 comments

FINANCIAL DISTRICT—Tomorrow's Inside Scoop pretty much confirms all the rumors that have been circulating around town about Aqua. Yes, the Michelin-starred restaurant is in dire straits financially. No, there isn't a defined owner. And yes, as was pretty clear from the Craigslist ads, Ron Boyd is no longer the chef there. Tick tock. [Scoop]

PAC HEIGHTS—Right on schedule, Beautifull opens today in the Laurel Village space that last housed Cafe Lo Cubano. The "foodspace" is backed by $15.5 million, and they've lured the aforementioned Boyd aboard the research side, so this probably won't be the last you'll hear of Beautifull. Bonus: Thrillist has the menu. 3401 California St, at Laurel; (415) 728-9080; website [EaterWire]
