Plywood Report: Three Twins, Manzoni, Farm:Table, Noodle Theory, Gracias Madre, MORE!

Welcome back to the Plywood Report, your regular, all-encompassing chronicle of the next generation of restaurants and bars to grace our fair city. Notice something on your block? Let us know. Gold stars and Coronas if you include photos.

1) Lower Haight: It's hard to believe that San Francisco has yet to boast a certified organic ice cream shop, but that's the claim being made by Three Twins. Located on Fillmore, between Waller and Haight, it's slated to open in late May and will be open from noon to 10pm. According to the website, it also has locations in Marin and Napa. [PLYWOOD]

2) Glen Park: Things are getting close for Manzoni, the Italian restaurant going into Diamond Street. Per a Glen Park tipster, construction is almost complete, and they just installed a large open brick oven hearth. [PLYWOOD]

3) Tendernob: On Post between Jones and Leavenworth, there's new signage for something called Farm:Table, promising coffee, food and community. Anyone know anything? [PLYWOOD]

4) The Marina: The short-lived Ramen Club space on Steiner, vacant since December, has given way to another noodle joint. Quoth a tipster: "Not sure if you've heard but Noodle Theory is doing a soft opening this Thursday 5/7 ... Noodle Theory is started by the original chef of The House Louis Kao. Noodle Theory have a Berkeley location ( and now SF." [POST-PLYWOOD]

5) The Mission: A sharp-eyed photographer submitted this gem to the Eater SF Flickr Pool and we can't get enough. We mentioned this new project from Cafe Gratitude way back last summer, and now they've put up the advertisements, complete with religious portraits. The "vegan Nuevo Latino cuisine" taqueria is called Gracias Madre. [PLYWOOD]

6) Lower Haight: That new bakery/cafe going into 422 Haight has a name now: Roland's Bakery & Cafe. It's due in June, is already boasting the psychedelic logos and will include "artisan" East Coast bagels, layer cakes, pastries and mini-pastries. Also: open until 3am. [PLYWOOD]
