EaterWire: Alembic Chef Shuffle, Mariposa 'Bucks Reopens

THE HAIGHT—According to Lady Hopstress, Jordan Grosser has left Alembic for the sheep cheese business (or something), meaning co-chef Ted Fleury will be flying solo in the kitchen. [TH]

THE MISSION—The Starbucks on the corner of Mariposa and Bryant is back open after its week-long remodel/closure. As suspected, it has a slightly new look (new furniture, etc.), but all the usual Starbucks logos, coffee and crappy pastries are back. Read: Coffee Bar across the street remains the better option.
