CIVIC CENTER - Madame Hopper brings news that Shima Sushi will close at the end of the month and a new sushi brasserie called 2G Japanese Brasserie should open in the space by February. Not too many interior changes are planned and the menu is still under construction, though things like tartare and sashimi will likely be included. [Tablehopper]

SAUSALITO - Sausalito game changer Plate Shop from Kim Alter is moving towards a mid-January opening date now. GrubStreet has an early menu iteration here, riddled with goods like belly sliders with celery root slaw and nasturtium-laced urchin risotto from Alter's on-site vegetable beds.

FISHERMAN'S WHARF - Chipotle has applied to enter a space on the SW corner of Jefferson and Jones Streets in Fisherman's Wharf. [EaterWire]

OAKLAND - Homeroom, the Forthcoming gourmet mac and cheese restaurant that went through a bit of a name war with McDonald's earlier this year, is steadily stepping toward a late-January opening. The menu will include gluten-free and vegetarian options along with a recipe from the winner of this here contest. [GrubStreet, Homeroom510]

OAKLAND EXTRA - Awaken Cafe is raising money for the security deposit on its new location at 150 Frank Ogawa Plaza by tapping into its enormous Facebook and Twitter fan bases. Specifically, they are selling "pre-paid value accounts" on with all sorts of crafty incentives for donors. The one-time bearer of expertly foamed lattes, community building and sustainability is working on a green build out six times larger than the original for a potential opening in March or April of next year.

NORTH BEACH According to GrubStreet, the "grown-up, brasserie version of Marlowe" on Washington Square Park we described to you earlier this month is planning to open around June of next year. [GrubStreet, Eater, earlier]
