RUSSIAN HILL — The owners of Berkeley's Gather (2200 Oxford) hope to open a San Francisco restaurant in the former Marbella (2323 Polk). What's known so far: It's going to have a more extensive bar and not going to be called Gather. [ISSF]

EAST BAY — Oakland's Nido now has a liquor license. There are margaritas on the menu now, and new cocktails are expected to be added weekly. [East Bay Dish]

DVR ALERT — Chris Cosentino and his dimples will be on Good Morning America. Tune in at 8:30 a.m. on December 20 to see him make some (end of the world?) food. [EaterWire]

CHEF SHUFFLES — Over in Walnut Creek, Va De Vi (1511 Mount Diablo) is looking for a new leader in the kitchen. Shane McAnellyis leaving after two years, and owner John Walz doesn't foresee any major menu changes ahead. [ISSF]
