The epidemic of restaurant openings here in the Bay Area continues its reckless sweep through the land. Here lies the rundown of this week's additions: from the notable to, well, you know. Note: Plum, Cotogna, 25 Lusk and Atelier Crenn are just the beginning of what's on the horizon, so there's really no end in site here.
1) Tenderloin: - The rather large rooftop garden patio at Jones opens and begins serving cocktails today atop the Gaylord Suites. Ola Fendert of SoMa mainstay Oola is working on brunch and dinner menus to roll out in a few weeks. The owners are also opening a nightclub and gallery space next door called Public Works.

2) Napa: Former BBQ "man" Stephen Barber started serving fish -- and lots of it -- on Monday at Fish Story. This is the biggie from Lark Creek Restaurant Group in the still-expanding The Riverfront development. Should be quite the classy stop for a tete-a-tete and something from the raw bar, or the fish tank, for that matter. [EaterWire]
3) Hayes Valley: Taylor Boetticher was all smiles yesterday when his Fatted Calf butchery opened to the public. All sorts of potential trauma here for these guys and the vegans. [EaterWire]
4) Lots of parties this week leading up to the opening of Sharon Ardiana's Ragazza on Wednesday. Now the pizza decision-making process on Divisadero is a little more trying. Sorry. [EaterWire]
5) Ferry Building: The Cowgirl Creamery people kept low pro about Sidekick, but it's actually quite the addition to the Ferry Building. They've kindly brought us a milk bar, a mozzarella bar and a truly lovely list of other options revolving around the dairy food group. This galis mostly a take-out operation, though there are a few standup tables in the nave. [EaterWire]
6) Sunset: Let's Roll also opened on Irving Street and 23rd this week. It's now a tonkatsu restaurant, not a roll-your-own sushi place, so the name doesn't really make sense any more. [SFoodie]
