Boba Craze in the Sunset, Shark Fin Banned, More

PALO ALTO - Here you can read one of the inspirational quotes on the wall at LYFE, the new healthy fast food restaurant coming at you from former McDonald's execs and Oprah's personal chef. As you can see, things are coming together and they should be ready to open for dinner on October 12th. Then they'll add lunch and breakfast on the 13th and 14th, respectively. [EaterWire]

NOW OPEN - Is boba the next banh mi? The Feast is reporting that boba tea specialist TeaWay has opened its doors at 2250 Irving St. in a former Baskin-Robbins store. Curiously, "it's now the third TeaWay within a two block stretch of Irving Street in San Francisco's Sunset District, a neighborhood that also boasts boba merchants such as Wonderful Foods Co. and the international Quickly chain." [The Feast]

BANS - Gov. Jerry Brown has approved the ban on "the possession, sale and distribution of imported shark fins in the state" of California. [Chron]

MARIN - The glitzy new Marinwood Market has opened in San Rafael. It's got a coffee bar, patio seating and an outdoor grill is en route. [ISSF]

BRUNCH EXTRA!! - And since today is all about brunch, let's take a closer look at 15 Romolo's "low key, boozy brunch," and its "brunch shots," wherein a "powdered sugar-dusted waffle square is dunked into black rum and coffee liqueur." Day-umm. [SFoodie]
