1) Mission: Pig & Pie opens today at 11 a.m., and today's specials are a classic rueben, and a buffalo sausage topped with huckleberry-smoked red onion relish. For those of you worried about the (iconic?) Dislocandia sign, it is not going anywhere. 2962 24th Street, 415-401-8770. [EaterWire]
2) Hayes Valley: Non-profit bakery and cafe Hayes Valley Bakeworks opened Thursday, serving pastries, lunch fare, Four Barrel coffee and kombucha on-tap. Mom are already giddy about the little sink for kids to wash their hands. 550 Gough Street, 415-555-1221. website
3) SoMa: Pascal Rigo's 20th La Boulange opened under the dome at The Westfield on Monday, and it's a rather glamorous La Boulange at that. This location has more savory options (lobster rolls, Prather Ranch burgers), Three Twins sundaes, and a signature chocolate-covered dessert called "le dome." 845 Market Street, 415-348-1866.

4) FiDi: Hung Lam's first permanent location of Soup Junkie opened Monday and he's now offering more than the famous crab and tomato bun rieu. Check out the daily menu on the website. One Chowhounder is a fan of the chicken banh mi. 388 Market Street, website. [EaterWire]
5) San Mateo: The former Bollywood Indian Cuisine is now 31st Union, a 50-seat small plates restaurant serving this menu of comfort food with a California spin. The decor (pictured) includes tons of reclaimed local wood, and they have cocktails and 12 wines on tap. 5 South Ellsworth Avenue, 650-458-0049, website.
6) Healdsburg: Zazu’s Duskie Estes and John Stewart opened a "Pork Shack" called Zazu on the River at Davis Family Vineyards in Healdsburg. The chalkboard menu (hanging on a shack by the tasting room) includes several options, like a grilled rapini-fontina sandwich. A pick-your-own-tomato BLT is in the works. 52 Front St., 707-569-0171, website. [ISSF]
