THE SHUTTER — Moroccan restaurant Tajine (1653 Polk) is sadly closing because owner Mohammed Ghaleb is no longer interested in being in the restaurant industry and couldn't find anyone to carry on the name. Turns out it's also curtains for Little Joe's (1106 Market), which shuttered last month after being in its new location for less than a year. [ISSF]

GOLD DUST SAGA — Those who miss All My Children and One Life to Live at least have the serial of the Gold Dust Lounge (247 Powell) to follow. The latest is that it is not eligible to become a landmark so it, too, appears headed for cancellation. [NBC Bay Area]

SOMA — Spring has not only sprung in North America, it has also bloomed at AQ (1085 Mission). The JBF Best New Restaurant nominee now sports new menus and uniforms as well as spring-y pastel and green color touches. Talk about commitment to seasonality. [ISSF]

CHEF BATTLES — For the past five weeks, students from the California Culinary Academy have been vying for the chance to cook at the James Beard House with Luce (888 Howard) chef Daniel Corey. The final installment of the Culinary Clash takes place on March 25 with a Luce-spirited three-course menu ($40) featuring braised short ribs; more info right this way. [EaterWire]
