RUSSIAN HILL—Already unreasonably excited about 1760, the more casual little sister to Acquerello that's arriving in a month or two? Consider heading to the mothership for an SF Chefs-sponsored preview dinner on April 22, featuring fare from Suzette Gresham and Mark Pensa of Acquerello, as well as Adam Tortosa, the incoming chef at 1760. Tickets are $150. [EaterWire]

THE MISSIONHumphry Slocombe's Jake Godby is known for adapting the last meals of Death Row inmates for his blue-plate specials at pop-up Truck Stop Cafe, but even by that standard, he's topped himself: this week's last meal is inspired by none other than Jesus Christ. The $16, seder-style special includes matzo-ball soup, brisket hash with poached eggs, and olive oil-almond cake for dessert. For vegetarians, there's fontina and charoset grilled cheese; no word on whether that's available on matzoh. Alternatively, if you're feeling like going treyf, there's French toast topped with lamb sloppy Joe and feta cream. Full menu here. [EaterWire]

OUTER SUNSET—Noe Valley's Kama Sushi just expanded to a second location in SOMA last year, and now it looks like they're going for the hat trick, with an ABC filing for a vacant space at 31st and Judah. Sunset sushi, here we come. [Grub Street]

RUTHERFORD—Some chef shuffle action has gone down at year-and-a-half-old Alex Italian Restaurant in the former La Toque space: not only is chef Nick Ritchie (previously of Bottega) off the reservation, but most of the kitchen staff has walked with him, citing "overwhelming operational difficulties with the ownership." Owner Alessandro Sbrendola is bringing in an undisclosed Italian-born chef from NYC. [Inside Scoop]
