Thai Idea and Golden Veggie Now Open on Polk Street, John Campbell’s Irish Bakery Shuts Two Locations, More

NOW OPEN - Tender catches new restaurant called Thai Idea Vegetarian has opened at 710 Polk Street. The owner was a manager at Osha Thai who wanted to open a place with a totally vegetarian and vegan menu, and, as you can see here, the decor is certainly a notch above the average TL Thai spot. Please do tell us about the food when you try it. [Tender]

NOW OPEN EXTRA - The Chron is reporting that a new Asian specialty market called Golden Veggie Market has opened on Polk at California. They'll sell things like Japanese mountain yam, but they're trying to gear it towards a "mainstream crowd." [Chron]

THE SHUTTER - It is with great sadness that we bring news of the departure of not one, but two locations of John Campbell’s Irish Bakery. Inside Scoop reports that both the Potrero Hill and Cow Hollow locations are done. With this, our city's scone supply is officially on a downward spiral. [ISSF]

FUNDRAISERS - Haighteration has more details on the fundraiser for Lower Haight fire victims happening tomorrow at Peacock Lounge. The folks at Uva Enoteca, Wing Wings and pretty much everyone in the neighborhood is getting involved. You can also make a donation on line. [H]

COMING ATTRACTIONS - Filling the void left now that Cocktail Week has ended is Whiskey Week, beginning tomorrow with a whiskey class at Bourbon & Branch. Everything culminates with WhiskeyFest on Friday, and it looks like there are still some tickets left for that. [TWA]

EXPANSION WIRE - Glen Park's Sel et Vin has closed and the owners of Tataki are taking over the address. They're not yet sure about the name and concept they're going to put here, but rest assured there will be sustainably sourced sushi. [GPA via Tablehopper, GrubStreet]
