Impending Shutters and drama certainly outweighed the splashy openings this week, but a handful of little spots have raised the curtain. Let's not forget them.

1) Hayes Valley: The neighborhood's macaron shake-up came to an end when Chantal Guillon opened yesterday at noon. Moving on from the addresses' former life as Paulette, there will now be new, organic flavors. And tea. [The Feast]

2) Mid-Market: May the future be brighter for Little Joe's. The time-honored Italian joint recently relocated to Seventh and Market Streets, just in time for last weekend's Pink Saturday shooting to spill into its brand new dining room. [EaterWire, LiveSoma]

3) Outer Richmond: The Richmond Blog brings up Magdy’s, a new cafe offering standard daytime fare, multiple bagel options, WiFi and some outdoor seating. [TRB]

4) Inner Richmond: Then there's Sichuan Home run by a chef who hails from none other than China’s Sichuan province. They have an extensive menu, and all the "north pole sea-snail" a person could ever want. Service and interior are sounding better than passable too.

5) West Portal: W. Portal Ave has given Cafe for All Seasons back to its people, at last. [EaterWire]
