SWITCHEROOS — The Richmond District's sole beacon of nightlife, Rockit Room, is turning into Neck of The Woods (406 Clement) as of December 1. It is unclear whether there is new ownership or whether the present owner is re-branding to start fresh from last spring's legal troubles. [SF Weekly]

POP-UPS — Manny Torres Gimenez, the chef/proprietor of Mr. Pollo (2823 Mission,) has taken on a second endeavor doing lunch and dinner service Mondays through Saturdays at Roxy's Cafe (2847 Mission). He's doing a four-course menu ($20) of handmade pastas and other Italian bites at Roxy's and Mr. Pollo is still up and running. [Chowhound/ISSF]

LISTICLES — High-end restaurants with associated and/or dedicated gardens get a national examination. Napa's The Restaurant at Meadowood (900 Meadowood Lane) and Los Gatos' Manresa (320 Village Lane) are singled out as the best in the Bay Area. [Bon Appetit]

COMING ATTRACTIONS — Kyle Mendenhall from The Kitchen in Colorado will guest chef at Abbot's Cellar (742 Valencia) beginning at 5:30 p.m. on December 2. Menu highlights include a small plate dish of Colorado crones with costa, queso de mano, and saba and a New York steak with duck fat potatoes. [SFist]
