SUNSET -- New for diners who like to ride the N-Judah, a spot called i-Skewers has taken over at 2407 Judah, previously known as Shabu Lounge (and Cybar before that). Open for lunch and dinner, it's a Chinese restaurant serving grilled and skewered meats and vegetables as well as handmade Shanghai soup dumplings and other dim sum snacks. [EaterWire]

RICHMOND -- Firehouse Pizza has been open for at least two weeks in the back of Appel & Dietrich Fine Food Market (6001 California Street at 22nd Avenue). The pies are thought to be of a thin-crusted variety and the menu features novelties like a bacon cheeseburger pizza. [RichmondSFBlog]

MISSION -- Originally thought to happen before the end of the year, the re-opening of Mexican staple La Rondalla has been tentatively delayed until late January. The restaurant has been closed since 2007. [Mission Local]

THE AIRWAVES -- Laid off from KGO Radio a few weeks ago in a switch to an all-news format, veteran food host Gene Burns luckily was not without a home for long. He will start broadcasting on 910 AM, a station that is changing identities for the new year, on January 7. Expect a weekday drive-time shift as well as a Saturday morning one. [ISSF]

LISTICLE DEPT. -- After naming a casconcelli pasta from Quince among his favorite dishes of the year, world traveling blogger Ulterior Epicure returns with a list of favorite desserts of 2011, naming a whipped sheep's milk cheese with honey-glazed brioche, honeycomb, and gold leaf from Saison in his top 25 and name-checking Humphry Slocombe's Secret Breakfast ice cream and caneles from Boulette's Larder. What were the best desserts you ate this year? Drop a little sugar in the comments bowl. [Ulterior Epicure]
