POTRERO - With its state-altering elixir bar, water wall, color therapy, sound therapy and veggie-friendly "meats" named oink, cluck, moo and quack; this Source "multi-dimensional dining experience" is going to be something else. Owner Andrew Fox tells us the opening has been pushed to March 9th, at which point he will also unleash the ultra-filtered water in the style of New York's famous raw restaurant Quintessence.

NORTH BEACH - Tablehopper has the skinny on Eat Me At The Vin Club, a take-out sandwich spot coming to 515 Broadway from the owners of Luella and Tomasso's. They'll offer a daily salad, soup and three pressed sandwiches like a braised beef cheek and pecorino béchamel. Opening could happen as soon as next Wednesday. [Tablehopper]

THE MISSION - The Pollo Campero Guatemalan fried chicken joint angling for 2740 Mission Street went before the Planning Commission yesterday and its permit was approved with conditions. If things work out, it will be the first Pollo Campero in the U.S. to follow the brand's original Central American business model of a full service restaurant. Our Mission branch will have 70 employees and a huge 1,250 square foot back patio, but as Signore Lucchesi notes, there's lots of NIMBY opposition related specifically to the large patio. So everything's in limbo right now as Pollo Campero retools its argument for the next meeting on the 19th. [GrubStreet, EaterWire, ISSF]

WINE COUNTRY - Donna Scala, who moved into the old Pilar building in Napa in 2008, has started construction on a new Italian restaurant she's putting in there. It may be open by fall. [Chron]
