Trattoria 1910, A Pop-Up Restaurant from Gallo Salame; Another Monkey Takes Over Conduit; and MORE!!

SOMA - Today signage went up at the old John Colins space on Natoma and it looks like the new taker is, of all people, Louis Gabiati of Gallo Salame. In honor of his meat's 100th Anniversary, pop-up restaurant Trattoria 1910 will open its doors on May 26th for four weeks only. They were offering free lunch every day via the Web site, but those slots appear to have been booked through online reservations. Although -- this just in -- the Trattoria will open for "Cafe Nights" from 5 to 7 p.m. nightly, allowing diners to try recipes featuring Gallo salame while listening to music that reminds of 1910 San Francisco. Here's the announcement. [EaterWire]

SOMA EXTRA - The space for forthcoming Neapolitan, somewhat pricey pizza joint, Una Pizza Napoletana, has come to light: via tweets, no less. Anthony Mangieri will be moving in at the corner of 11th and Howard some time in July. [Tablehopper tweet via Grub Street SF]

MISSION - Inside Scoop has this report regarding the new tenant at the dormant Conduit space. Aom Phanthong, owner of Koh Samui and the Monkey and Citizen Thai and the Monkey, will be opening Another Monkey, complete with Thai menu and cocktail program; and it may happen in as little as two weeks. So the architectural conduits of Conduit will become the monkey bars of Another Monkey. Wonder what starchitect Stanley Saitowitz, who designed the space, would think about that. [SFGate]

NOB HILL - More news has come in from Chris Fogarty of Polk Street's R Bar regarding his takeover of the Nob Hill Tavern space with partner Tod Alsman. The new bar will be called, The Pour House (not Pour, as we mentioned earlier). The space will be a cleaned up version of what it was before, but envision that with shuffle board, a basketball Pop-A-Shot, and one or two pool tables. So this is sounding a bit like Mauna Loa now. The estimated opening is "before the end of summer," but that's a rough plan at this stage of the game. [EaterWire]

TENDERLOIN - Jimmy Kwok, the esteemed chef at 'Loin Vietnamese mecca, Bodega Bistro, on Larkin and Eddy, will be opening Jimmy's Bar and Ristorante, an Asian-Italian restaurant very much like "Il Fornaio meets Oyster Depot," in his words. Jimmy's, featuring a raw bar and hot food, will open Sunday in the Cova Hotel at 655 Ellis Street. Turns out Kwok is doing all this in large part "to pay homage to Marco Polo, the first Italian guy who went to Asia." The interior has been designed in gray stone and natural colors, though not all of the furniture is currently assembled. Kwok is expecting scores of industry folk and friends to flood the 70-seat restaurant tomorrow night for the soft-opening party. [EaterWire]

DIVEWIRE - A tipster tells us Monaghan's, on Pierce Street in the Marina, closed a few days ago and will be moving next door into the shuttered Pierce Street Manor space. Concurrently tips filter in regarding the takeover of the Bayside space by Monaghan's owners Sharon and Dave Newell. Word on the street is the new concept will be similar to Perry's, but with more of a sports flair. So basically it will be a lot like Bayside. [EaterWire]

COW HOLLOW - Nearby on Union Street, Unwind, the restaurant from Tod Slosek and Kai Vance to be featured on reality TV show, "The Opener", is hopeful that their building permit will come through today so they can begin work on the buildout. They anticipate filming to begin in about two weeks, just as they get into the heavy duty pre-opening work. [EaterWire]

SOUTH PARK - Nate Pollack and Heidi Gibson of The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen have hit some construction delays and won't be opening next week as originally anticipated. They are now thinking they'll open in two to three weeks. [EaterWire]
