In addition to Naked Lunch Pub & Grill and Trick Dog, there are a few other openings to catch you up on this week.
1) The Mission: Today through Sunday, Dandelion Chocolate's cafe portion will be soft-open, testing out their menu on the public from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., or until they're sold out. This means pastries by Phil Ogiela, several hot chocolates, cacao fruit smoothies, Tisano cacao husk tea and Four Barrel coffee. "Official" opening is January 16th. [EaterWire]
2) North Beach: HRD Coffee Shop's new sister business HRD Smokin' Grill is open for dinner only now at 532 Green Street, complete with an "autographed Guy Fieri poster." Inside Scoop has a snapshot of the full menu. [ISSF]
4) Embarcadero: Artisan food and kitchenware shop Buyer's Best Friend just opened in the Ferry Building with the same "liberal sampling policy" as their North Beach and Upper Haight outposts. [SFoodie]
6) Oakland: The first East Bay edition of Rosamunde Sausage Grill went live with big lines on Wednesday night in Old Oakland. This location has 16 beers on tap, and they'll cook links from neighboring Taylor's Sausages as well, if you so desire. [KQED]
