INNER SUNSET — After a few attempts at moving into the neighborhood, approval has been met for La Boulange (1226 Ninth Ave.) to open in the avenues. Looks like it won't be happening for a while, though, as owner Pascal Rigo says he is aiming for next year. [ISSF]

THE MISSION — Brooke Arthur is shaking up the cocktail program at Wo Hing General Store (584 Valencia) for the season. As a highlight, she's rocking new spring spritzers, including the Sparkling Chrysanthemum (local vermouth, Benedictine, orange bitters, absinthe, bubbles) and Biere Picon (Amer Picon, pilsner beer, twist of lemon).

FOOD MEDIA — Bon Appetit and Saveur both have baguettes on their new covers. It's like showing up to the prom in the same darned dress, how embarrassing. [Eater National]

VIDEO INTERLUDE — Since it can sometimes require the mastery of multiple languages just to learn how to make a simple reservation in San Francisco, the fashion-centric site Refinery 29 has shot a handy pronunciation guide video with chefs setting the record straight. Watch if you want to make sure you aren't bumbling names like Txoko and Chiascuro. [R29]
