SOMA — B Bar's "Locals Brunch" promotion of $12 bottomless mimosas and Bloody Marys, used to be a word of mouth special for the 'hood, but now it's on the permanent menu. Is there really such a thing as a secret menu anymore? [EaterWire]

OAKLAND — Pizzaiolo proprietor Charlie Hallowell wants to open a butcher shop and restaurant in the East Bay this year. He tells What The Fork that he'll also teach a class with Samin Nosrat at the Oxbow School in Napa and has planned a new project called "Meat of the People." [EBX]

COMING ATTRACTIONS — The annual Dine About Town restaurant shebang returns January 15-31, with its $17.95 two-course lunches and $34.95 three-course dinners. It's always a mixed bag of value, and there's a pre-opening event to benefit Meals on Wheels on Jan. 12 at City View at Metreon. Restaurants such as Luce, Fish & Farm, Plouf, and Tres will be there, and so will you if you buy $40 tickets here. [EaterWire]

HERRING! — Local chefs have a fresh new ingredient to ponder in herring. The local fish, previously only doled out to Japan for its roe, is now actually allowed to be sold around here. Restaurants such as Quince and Nettie's Crab Shack are among the spots which have purchased it from Monterey Fish Market this week; it's also available to the public at MFM's Berkeley location.
