1) Russian Hill: Biondivino spinoff winebar Et Al. is about a week or two away from opening. An Eater tipster got a sneak peek of the interior, noting a "gorgeous and very Parisian chic [decor] with lots of moulding and a showstopper wine glass chandelier." Tablehopper has more decor and menu details. [EaterWire, Tablehopper]

2) Lower Haight: Fun times at the former Rotee space as word spreads that the chefs from Broken Record, James Moisey and Shane LaValley, will be bringing the same beloved menu to a new restaurant here. It will be called Ricky Bobby, after everyone's favorite guy from Talladega Nights, and they hope to open in late fall. [ISSF]
