Jeremy Fox and Kim Alter Together at Saison, More!

POP-UPS - You may have heard the magical Jeremy Fox will be cheffing it up at Saison when Josh Skenes in in New York from June 14 to 18. Now there's news the newly homeless Kim Alter and Top Chef alum Eli Kirshtein will join him. There will be a lot of shared love for vegetables in that kitchen, so it might just work out well.

THE LUNCH BUNCH - New executive chef at Roe, Patty Blecha has fired out the new lunch menu for the return of lunch service on June 15th. Her "Big Pig" with ham, Niman Ranch bacon, caramelized onions, provolone and house-made Tabasco cream cheese sounds like a food coma waiting to happen. And in Healdsburg, Baci Cafe and Wine Bar (336 Healdsburg Ave.) is now serving its existing dinner menu during the lunch hour on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. [ISSF]

EXPANSIONWIRE - E&O Restaurant's Arnold Wong says he's "ready for his 15 minutes of fame:" "I am thinking about expanding my restaurant consulting business, possibly starting a food-lifestyle blog and threatening a new restaurant (in the perfect storm)." [BAB]

HELP WANTED - Bi-Rite Market is looking for an assistant farm manager to work on-site in Sonoma. It looks far more physically taxing than blogging. [Good Food Jobs]

TASTING THINGS - SFoodie tries the Ferry Building's new octopus balls stand and thinks they're a little jiggly: "We're sure the balls will become firmer with more practice. We apologize for that last sentence." [SFoodie]
