Claudine Puts Signage up in Union Square, Dear Mom Delays, and More!

UNION SQUARE - Cafe Claude and Gitane owner Franck LeClerck is almost ready to essentially take over Claude Lane with Claudine, his third restaurant on the street. As you can see here, signage is very much up. When it opens on November 1, you'll experience a 31-seat space with a raw bar and a Euro-style cafe menu, sporting crispy pork salad, baked calamari and the like. [EaterWire]

THE MISSION - Although Dear Mom was hoping to open in the El Rincon space by October 1, it's looking more like late October now. They'd really like to get going before Halloween. [EaterWire]

THE MISSION EXTRA - Forthcoming BBQ restaurant and brewery, Southpaw is bringing in the live edge wood for its tables and stocking up its back bar right now in preparation for an opening around Nov. 1. [EaterWire]

THE MISSION WIRE BONUS! - Over on Valencia St., they are really going to town on La Rondalla. This means they might actually be on track for a rebirth right around Christmas. [UA]

MARINA - Forthcoming Southern Kitchen and Smokehouse, Cedar Hill is getting its smoker in today. Owner Jon Rietz says they should be open by the third week of October. [EaterWire]

SOMA - The W Hotelwas slated to remodel its lobby bar and entrance area right after they opened their new restaurant, Trace. GrubStreet reports that they're jamming to get it finished by Friday, "two weeks ahead of schedule," in time for the a big Oracle convention coming up. [GrubStreet]

STOW LAKE - Meanwhile in Golden Gate Park, the former owners of the Stow Lake boathouse left a pile of horse shit for the Ortega family, who took over operations earlier this month. According to the Examiner, they also left some mementos in the kitchen: "a Bible, a stuffed crow and a picture that one friend described as 'the love child of Tina Fey and Mike Myers.'"
