Leopold's and Hudson Near, Small Potatoes Grows, More!

RUSSIAN HILL - Things appear to be getting close for Leopold's, the Austrian-Italian concept coming to the former Antica Trattoria space on Polk. According to an Eater tipster the name has been put on one window and the tables are set up "though paper is still up on some of the windows." [EaterWire]

SOMA - In an effort to meet untapped SoMa lunch needs, Small Potatoes catering will open a small restaurant out of their HQ at 35 Sixth Street. They'll serve what they're calling "classic San Franciscan" local, organic, sustainable fare from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and the menu will change according to the catering job of the moment. Target opening here is spring. [EaterWire]

OAKLAND - Marzano/Garibald's owner John Hurley has decided to shutter both restaurants in favor of opening something new called Hudson. The newcomer will be a real brain teaser: a modern American brasserie with Italian influences, and should be open later this month. [ISSF]

MISSION - A man named Igor Litvak has applied for a new license at the old South Side Cafe space (433 South Van Ness). The new name is Flying Pig Bistro. [Everyblock, Grubstreet, earlier]

MISSION EXTRA - Tablehopper has new word on the Radish restaurant project coming to 19th and Lexington. It shall be a casual American breakfast, lunch and brunch place with street-food inspired smaller plates in the evenings. By the time they open around mid-Feb, craft beers and local wines will also be served from a nifty-sounding horseshoe-shaped bar. [Tablehopper]

HAYES VALLEY - Apparently Place Pigalle's owner Greg Noto is hoping to reopen the bar, but his license is still pending payment and approval. [GrubStreet]
MARIN - Construction is about to begin on the brick-and-mortar edition of popular La Cocina-sponsored Mexican street food vendor El Huarache Loco . The restaurant will post up in the Marin County Mart and the menu will be a fleshed out version of what owner Veronica Salazar is already doing on the streets. [SFoodie]

BERKELEY - A rather large North German bakery and restaurant called Gaumenkitzel is set to open on San Pablo later this month. The owners are from Hamburg (Germany!) so the pastries have a good chance of tasting legit. SFoodie has a lot more on the impending food program. [SFoodie]
