NOB HILL—In a rare move, the team behind Sons & Daughters, Teague Moriarty and Matt McNamara, have decided to bump down the price of their tasting menu from $135 to $110, citing increased output from their abundant Los Gatos garden as the reason for the drop. (The listed price is actually $96, but the previous price was all-inclusive, so it comes out to $110 with tip.) They've got edible snails, honey, 60 chickens, and plenty of veggies growing in the South Bay, and hope to add rabbits and a goat or cow for milk sometime soon. [Inside Scoop]

OAKLAND—A month into its tenure in Jack London Square, Chris Pastena's Lungomare has added a cafe component and weekend brunch into the mix. Brunch is available 9 am-3 pm on Saturdays and Sundays, with dishes like a caramelized onion and chicken sausage pizzetta, poached eggs with sausage arancini, and blood-orange French toast. (See the full menu here.) The cafe, aimed at morning ferry commuters, offers coffee from Roast Co. and pastries, and guests can sit on the patio or in the lounge area. It's open from 7 am-2 pm on weekdays and 8 am-3 pm on weekends. [EaterWire]

OAKLAND—The Oakland outpost of wine bar District just added a new lunch option, Carriage House, to the mix, serving soups, salads, pizzas, and sandwiches out of the back of the building. (Check out their full menu here.) They'll be offering online ordering and delivery within downtown Oakland very shortly, which should be great for the office workers there who don't have a ton of options. [EaterWire]

OAKLANDBocanova is hosting a series of monthly themed five-course "Rick's Supper Club" dinners with owner/chef Rick Hackett, starting tomorrow night. The series kicks off with an all-plantain "Platanos Aplenty" dinner (full menu here), while April 4's edition will highlight spring vegetables like asparagus, fava beans, and morels, and May 2's meal will be a tribute to South American cuisine. The price is more than solid, too: $68 gets you five courses, paired wines, and a welcome cocktail. Call (510) 444-1233 for reservations. [EaterWire]
