Revival Bar + Kitchen Soft Opens Thursday

BERKELEY - Amy Murray's modern Cal bistro, Revival Bar + Kitchen, will be soft-opening this Thursday, more-or-less as planned, with a panel and book release in honor of Farmer Jane: Women Changing the Way We Eat. It all makes sense because Revival has three women chefs: Murray, chef Alicia Jenish and pastry chef Sasha Dallan. Thursday's panelists will include Novella Carpenter, Doborah Koons Garcia, Jessica Prentice, Willow Rosenthal and Nancy Vail. Find ticket info here. [EaterWire]

FIDI - Laurent Manrique's Rouge et Blanc Wine Bar announced a new cocktail menu today. All of the drinks are made with grape-based liquors such as armagnac, cognac and Idol vodka. The "Dame Blanche," for example, has cognac, White Crème de Cacao, cream and nutmeg. Yes, that means "white lady" and you can drink her for $12. [EaterWire]

SOMA - A panel of industry pros and city officials will gather to unravel the newly expanded smoking law at a workshop at Mighty this Thursday from noon to 1:30 p.m. The law's affects on businesses, how to conform, and who'd exempt, will all be explored. If interested, all you need to do is show up. [EaterWire]

THE MISSION - The "oh crap" revelation of the day is that Mission Burger may be donesky at the end of the month. Today SFoodie pointed out its burger master, Danny Bowien, will be out-of-town for the month of June for his wedding in Seoul. (We guess that's an okay reason.) And there's no saying if he'll be ready and willing to re-commence burger flipping once back. [SFoodie]

LA LA LAND - On Friday, Eater LA uncovered this tweet, from Top Chef contestant and former McDonald's “poissonier," Richard Blais, foreshadowing an SF restaurant attempt. If it's works out, brace for the sous vide supreme. [~ ELA ~]
