Burritt Room Opens; Mr. & Mrs. Flavors of the Week; MORE

UNION SQUARE - New cocktail spot for cocktailians, The Burritt Room, made its debut over the weekend with an 18-deep cocktail list. SFoodie has this nifty interview with the owner, and there's a nice interior slide show here on GrubStreet SF. [SFoodie; GrubStreet SF]

DOGPATCH - Mr. & Mrs. Miscellaneous has been rapid-firing on the new flavors since they opened on the 21st. Early ice cream stand-outs include candied violet and "ballpark," made with beer and peanuts. Expect the following new flavors to debut this week: "coffee and donuts," tres leches with chunks of tres leches cake in it, and "black forest," vanilla ice cream with kirsch-soaked cherries and chunks of black fudge cake.

OPENING REPORT- Beijing BBQ is now open at 4683 Mission Street, and the second Panini location we spoke of at Oak and Broderick has been christened Panini 2. [SFoodie]

PRESIDIO- Ray Tang, a.k.a. "King of Pork," has officially returned as chef at Presidio Social Club. The first order of business is a format switch from the former small plates menu to an all-day dining situation. Then, starting on June 20, Tang is bringing Sunday pig roasts back. Check the Web site for more info as the date nears. [EaterWire]

WINE WIRE - Jon Bonne over at Inside Scoop brings word that FiDi Italian restaurant, Barbacco, will release a computerized, manual wine-selection system this week: "a fleet of yellow handheld touchscreen wine devices to help diners navigate its 105-bottle list. They claim to be the first in the Bay Area, possibly the West Coast, to be using such a system." [ISSF]
