Manresa Reopens, Charles Phan's Latest Hire and More

THE CATS - The changes at David Kinch's Michelin star-encrusted Manresa are complete and the restaurant will open again for dinner tonight in Los Gatos. There are now two dining areas, about 10 more seats, a cocktail bar/lounge and a new cocktail program to go along with it. Inside Scoop has lots of details on that. [EaterWire, ISSF]

CHEF SHUFFLES - With speculations whirling around Charles Phan's build-out in the original Slanted Door (584 Valencia St.) digs, it's interesting to note he's recently brought former Midi chef Michelle Mah onto his team. [Tablehopper]

DINNER TIME - Pac Heights brunch staple Ella's opened for dinner last night. Expect some of the beloved lunch items and more entrees with a Southern spin. [ISSF]

NAPA - Model Bakery has started doing a "late bake" every afternoon at 3 p.m. so later afternoon customers get fresher bread. We imagine the major impetus, however, was getting better product to their local clients, restaurants like Bottega, Fish Story, Ubuntu, Etoile and Cantinetta Piero that serve Model baguettes and such during dinner service.

AWARDS SEASON - SF Weekly released its Best of San Francisco list to the world today. And there are tons of awards to review, like "Best Weekend Birria" and "Best Bar Inside a Bar," in the Bars & Clubs and Food & Drink categories. It's worth a peruse. [SFoodie]
