NOW OPEN - Today SoMa coffee roaster Sightglassofficially graduates from kiosk to cafe. Now there's an abundance of seating and locally made treats to go along with your single origin Yirga Cheffe. GrubStreet has pictures. [EaterWire, Tablehopper, GrubStreet]

OAKLAND - In this interview with Zagat, the owner of Old Oakland's new Mexican Cosecha, Dominica Rice says she's going to start family-style pop-up dinners at her cafe in August. Since she's a Chez Panisse alum, the first one is probably going to raise money for Alice's Edible Schoolyard. Facebook will have updates. [Zagat]

LUNCH WIRE - In addition to the outdoor seats Cotogna is looking to add, Madame Tablehopper says they've also just launched boxed lunches to go. Remember when Ryan Scott did that at Cotogna predecessor Myth Cafe? [Tablehopper]

POP-UPS - Manresa pastry chef Belinda Leong is going to do a "pastry pop-up" at Flour + Water for one day only, August 7. From 9 a.m. to noon, you'll be able to grab one of her pastries or desserts to go, or eat it in-house. Sweet-tooths, plan accordingly. [ISSF]

CASTING CALLS - Reminder that that local Top Chef producer casting call is tomorrow. Get on it! [EaterWire, The Feast]

GARLIC FRIES - Bon Appetit has a recipe for a "lighter take on the Gilroy Garlic Fries at the San Francisco Giants' AT&T Park." Here are two links so you can compare how they look: Bon Appetit garlic fries, Gilroy garlic fries. [BA]

PRINT MEDIA - Local blogger Broke-Ass Stuart's new book Young Broke & Beautiful: Broke-Ass Stuart’s Guide to Living Cheaply. Buy it for the suggestions on cheap eating (and dating, traveling, shopping, etc.). [Broke-Ass]
