MISSION - Lady Hopper went to a friends and family dinner at Locavore last night, so we know the opening nears. As you see here, the exterior is indeed shaping up. We can look forward to former Flora chef Jason Moniz' cuisine, tricked out with a sourced-from-within-100-miles slant. Skip here for more details. [EaterWire, Tablehopper] MISSION EXTRA - StarStream, a weekday cafe serving breakfast, lunch and Blue Bottle coffee, is coming to 14th and Harrison. Goody Goodie owner Remi Hayashi, who has trained under Emily Luccheti, will be having a field day with cakes, tarts, Roman-style pizzas and more. You may be able to sneak in as early as tomorrow.

MARINA - Inside Scoop has some early peekage inside Dominique Crenn's Atelier Crenn on Fillmore Street. She's primed for a complete overhaul, which should be wrapped up by the end of the year with the opening soon after in early 2011. [ISSF]

CASTRO - About a week ago, we received word that something called Pudong had posted up in the former Mecca space. According to Signore Lucchesi, it's to be a traditional Shanghainese restaurant, with authentic French touches. Former Shanghai 1930 chef Jason Xu will run the kitchen. The interior will be lightened and brightened up and they are looking at a December 1 opening day for now. [ISSF]

SAN MATEO - The Counter Custom Built Burgers is coming to San Mateo in mid-November. It will enter the space on West Hillsdale where Tower Records used to be. Here Chowhound gives some idea of what to expect. [Chowhound, EaterWire]

BURGERSPLOSION - Nino Rabbaa of Santa Rosa's Rendez Vous Bistro is planning to open a burger joint in the former Worth Our Weight and GG’s Earth and Surf space on Third Street near D St. The name is tentatively Downtown Burger Bar, featuring 12 burger selections: everything from a patty with truffle shavings to something for the vegetarians.
