Acquerello Gets Botox, Public House Adds To-Go, More!

REVAMPS - Giancarlo Paterlini and Suzette Gresham-Tognetti have recently opened up the dining room design at 22-year-old modern Italian Acquerello (1722 Sacramento Street). They removed some tables, put air conditioning in all their dining areas and even added another private dining room called the "Wine Room." According to Paterlini, the menus from Mark Pensa—who's been chef de cuisine since late 2008— have "become more interesting and creative." For example, there's a ragù of guinea hen and duck with flourless and eggless ‘feather light’ potato gnocchi on the menu. It's gluten-free. Anyone been lately? [EaterWire]

BALL PARK - Ball Park-adjacent restaurant and bar,Public House has realized they should make some pre-made sandwiches and to-go beers readily available for game goers. So they've added a "grab-n-go station" inside the door on the way into the stadium. They also reminded us that their drinks are cheaper than the ones you get at the concession stands inside the ball park, so, consider it! Also tomorrow they're tapping a "special" keg of California Common from Iron Springs. [EaterWire]

THE MISSION - According to this Mission Mission commenter, Tortas El Primo (2499 Folsom St) was shut down for selling drugs. The popular opinion is that an Italian bakery will be moving into the space. [Mission Mission]

SOMA - 25 Lusk will start offering a seven-course tasting menu this Sunday and every Sunday, Monday and Tuesday thereafter. On the sample menu they sent over, three of the courses were sweet; so you dessert-loving fools may want to look into this one. Price is $78 and an extra $45 with wine pairings. [EaterWire]

THE MISSION - If you like rubber boots and curry, we've got just the thing for you. Tretorn will be selling its rain boots out of a truck tonight starting at 6 p.m. somewhere on Valencia between 19th and 20th streets. If you buy a pair, they'll give you a free dinner from the Magic Curry Kart. Of course, you can find out the exact location of this cross-promotional craziness later today on Twitter @TretornSWE or @magiccurrykart. [EaterWire]
