MARINA- Over in the Marina forthcoming Southern restaurant Cedar Hill recently hung this awning you see here. They also installed a new sliding door system, allowing an almost 100% connection to Chestnut Street. This one should be unleashed in early October a.k.a. San Francisco al fresco dining season.

SPOTTED - What does Olympic gold medalist Carl Lewis eat around here? According to a trusty tipster, he wrapped up lunch with friends at Plant Cafe a few hours ago: "He had the wasabi burger, spinach salad, and strawberry margarita smoothie." Lunch of champions. [EaterWire]

SPOTTED EXTRA - And for your Eater/E! Hollywood moment of the day, fresh in over the EaterWire: "Eva Longoria and Eduardo Cruz were spotted with friends at FARM restaurant at the Carneros Inn over Labor Day weekend. The couple and their group enjoyed an intimate meal on the terrace and sat under the stars until late in the evening." [EaterWire]
