THE LUNCH BUNCH - Chef Randy Lewis started serving this extensive line up of po' boys for lunch today at Criolla (2295 Market St.). "The Rich' Boy" (stuffed with Wagyu, foie gras mayo, tomato confit and black truffle dressed mache) wins the prize for best name. [EaterWire]

DIVIS WIRE- The Four Barrel coffee/Josey Baker "toast bar" and cafe coming to Divisadero is still months away, but they have plans to sling coffee and toast out of a "waxed canvas tent" in the under-construction space in the next few weeks. As hipster as that sounds, co-owner Jeremy Tooker insists they're not going for that vibe: "I wanted the new space to open without that expectation. It's partially why I didn't name it Four Barrel."
