How to Celebrate Oscar Nods, Departures at Ritz and F+W

NOB HILL—After a long stint as the wine director at the Ritz-Carlton, Stephane Lacroix is headed to New York to be the GM at the Michelin two-star Gilt. [EaterWire]

CRAZYLAND—Perhaps it's not as weird as getting Guy Fieri's autograph tattooed to your leg, but this Bourdain, Ripert, Morimoto tat is still pretty damn nuts. [SE]

THE MISSION—Speaking of departures, Flour + Water pizzaiolo—and more importantly, finalist in Eater's Hottest Chef Contest—Jon Darsky has left the Mission hotspot. He's going to open his own pizza joint. Because the city needs one more pizza joint. [Tablehopper]

BERKELEY—The sound editor for Avatar celebrated her Oscar nomination in style: "I'm going to Chez Panisse for lunch and have champagne with a friend of mine. Then I'm going to celebrate with my husband -- who works for Pixar, so he's a little conflicted." [Variety]

PACIFIC HEIGHTS—For the star-struck folks in the crowd, Don Francis Ford Coppola had dinner at Baker & Banker the other night, much to the excitement of the restaurant. [Twitter]
