Shimo Now A Noodle House, Food Truck Crush, More

HEALDSBURG - The $195 porterhouse for four people wasn't exactly killing it at Doug Keane's Shimo, but his ramen was. So the restaurant has switched gears to become a noodle house with a create-your-own noodle bar. And lunch. There are also smaller Asian-inspired dishes like glazed pork belly and hamachi sashimi. If you still really want a steak you can get that too in smaller portions fit for one, or—at the most—two people. Wine country now officially has an izakaya. [ISSF]

B2B - SFist has a map of the liquor stores along the Bay to Breakers route, should you need that. [SFist]

FOOD TRUCKS - Next Friday an Off the Grid type thing called Food Truck Crush will start up at the Larkspur Ferry Terminal. They'll kick off with Curry Up Now, Three Twins, Suzie Q's Lunch Box, The Rib Whip, Pizza Politana, and Sift Cupcakes. The plan is to do this every Friday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. The producers who did Malcolm in the Middle and the Mill Valley Film Fest are behind this. Seriously. [EaterWire]

AL FRESCO - GrubStreet notes some new places where the eating is good outside: Bar Bocce (Sausalito), eVe (Berkeley), El Paseo (Mill Valley), The Sycamore, Jones and—opening later this month— Chambers Eat + Drink and Txoko. We'll add the brand spanking new Piccino, which has room for twelve on the sunny side of the street. Now, how do we get the wind to stop? [GrubStreet]
