BERKELEY — Comal (2020 Shattuck), the Oaxacan concept from former Delfina chef Matt Gandin, has settled on an opening date of May 4. Fun fact: First time restaurateur John Paluska managed Phish for almost 20 years. [EaterWire]

COMING ATTRACTIONS —Fifth Floor (12 Fourth St.) pastry chef Francis Ang presents a sweet and savory dessert demonstration class on May 7 at the restaurant with dishes such as a black olive madeleine with saffron ice cream. The session includes a look into the Fifth Floor kitchen. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased on Eventbrite. [EaterWire]

THE MISSION — They might have been emptying out their fridge, but today's burger special at Sycamore (2140 Mission) is an improbable-sounding tortilla soup cheeseburger. Pair it with a classy Pabst Blue Ribbon or soda and fries for $12; bring your own Tums. [Mission Mission]

BERNAL HEIGHTS After listening to the wishes of the neighborhood earlier this year, Charlie of Charlie's Cafe has decided to turn the former Park Bench Cafe (3214 Folsom) into another eatery. It was thought for some time that it might be transformed into a retail spot, but it looks like it's going to change into an as-yet unnamed tapas and wine bar. [Bernalwood]
