Priestly Eats in the Mission; Barrel Room Expands

THE MISSIONErstwhile 90210 hunk Jason Priestly has been spotted around the Mission in the past couple of days, touring The Abbot's Cellar, Mission Cheese, Tacolicious, and Craftsman & Wolves with KCBS' Liam Mayclem. The segment will be part of Priestly's Canadian travel show Hollywood & Vines. [SFist]

ROCKRIDGEBarrel Room, the cute Tenderloin wine bar, is expanding to uber-hot Rockridge, just a couple of doors down from fellow SF expansionist A16. They'll have a full menu and are targeting September. [Diablo Dish]

BAY AREASan Francisco says Emporio Rulli's new caramelized brioche is good enough to compete with the mighty cronut. We've had it, and agree it's pretty great. (By the way, SF chefs, cheers to you for collectively deciding not to knock off the cronut for cheap press.) [SF Mag]

THE MISSION—Two fun events are going down in the Mission next week: Bar Tartine is hosting a Monday picnic fundraiser, with lots of delicious sausage, and St. Vincent is introducing their very own Craftsman collaboration beer, a summer wheat brewed with sumac, via a Saturday-afternoon tasting and bottle sale and Sunday paired dinner.

FINANCIAL DISTRICT—Finally, the upcoming downtown expansion of Chocolatier Blue has set an opening date: Friday, August 9th. [EaterWire]
