1) Oakland: Hopscotch opened Friday on San Pablo Ave., taking a slight Japanese turn on American diner fare, and serving a burger with beef tongue. There are some raves on Yelp about the cocktails too.
2) Tenderloin: Starting tomorrow, the newest bar from the Bourbon & Branch group, Tradition, will be open six days a week in the former Mr. Lew's. space. The bar has reserved and walk-in sections in a huge space with a central square-shaped bar and balcony seating overhead. [EaterWire, GrubStreet]
3) The Richmond: The former Yet Wah on Clement has officially morphed into Quan Ju Fu (2140 Clement), a second location from the owners of Chinatown Restaurant offering traiditional Chinese dishes, all-day dim sum, and shabu shabu in a family style dining atmosphere that looks like the inside of a beet.
