Oh boy, Friday! Now lets take a moment to reflect on the noteworthy newcomers now open for your enjoyment. As always, we welcome early reports and thoughts here in the comments, or -- if you'd like some privacy -- send them on in to HQ. We're also accepting openings we may have missed at this time. Now get into it:

Papi%27s.jpg1) Mission: The La Oaxaqueña family has opened Papi's Fusion Deli , offering a rather confusing medley of tortas, tamales, burritos, American sandwiches, Asian-influenced salads, licuados and Mexican hot chocolate, according to Lady Hopper's intern. And then, smoked fish, guac, cous cous and other things abound in the deli case. An ADD assortment, indeed! Still La Oaxaqueña gets it right, so first-hand reports in the comments, please.

2) Mid-Market/Hayes Valley: Chris Tavelli has brought new life to the shuttered CAV locale with Pause Wine Bar, billing an eco-friendly, global wine list and a pescatarian menu of eats. [EaterWire]

3) Rockridge: Wood Tavern's casual spinoff Southie opened on Tuesday. It's an East-Coast-meets-California theme. We're all ears on this one. [ISSF, EaterWire, earlier]

4) Downtown Oakland: Ex-Bacar/Farallon chef Douglas Bernstein's artisanal flare is now available on the all-day bill of fare at Downtown Oakland's Disco Volante. Also on the menu? A rotating schedule of live jazz and blues acts. How very Oakland. [EaterWire]
