OCEAN BEACH—About nine months after he came aboard, George Morrone has departed the scenic confines of Sutro's at the Cliff House. No one expected the super-talented, if once-mercurial Morrone to stay on for too long in the first place, but here's hoping the four-star chef resurfaces somewhere soon. Patrick Prager, a vet of Michael Mina's XIV in LA, will fill the void at Sutro's. [Scoop]

TELEVISION—Last night was the premiere of Dancing With the Stars, and Marc Dacascos—better known as The Chairman from Iron Chef America—was on it. He earned 29 points. We don't know what that means either, but good for him! [AP]

'BUCKSWIREStarbucks, doing what all the cool kids are doing, has launched two iPhone aps. The first allows users to find the nearest 'Bucks and find nutritional info, while the second helps users manage their Starbucks cards. [WSJ via Eater NY]

THE FIERISPHERE—Over the weekend, Guy Fieri was filming something or other, and someone (maybe a woman) threw a bra at him on stage. Shoulda been a shoe. [EMD]
