Amorino Gelato Hits Marin; A Charitable Oakland Cookbook

Plus: An old-meets-new SF menu, and Linea Caffe extends its hours.

MARIN—Amorino, the Paris-based gelato chain that's met with acclaim everywhere from New York to Tokyo, has finally hit the Bay Area, opening up a location in the Village at Corte Madera. Cups and cones start at a whopping $5.50. [EaterWire]

OAKLAND—If there's an Oakland restaurant fan in your life this holiday (or if that fan is you), consider investing in Arts & Eats, a charitable cookbook that benefits Creative Growth, a local nonprofit that helps developmentally disabled adults develop as artists. The $20 book features recipes from Brown Sugar Kitchen, Haven, Kronnerburger, Juhu Beach Club, Duende, and many more of the area's top spots. [SF Weekly]

SAN FRANCISCO—Old SF restaurant menus are always a delight, and this one is no different. The broiled pig's feet and roasted quail would be right at home in a new hot spot, though presumably the "fried mush" would go for something like $18 these days. [Mission Mission]

MISSION—Coffee fiends will be pleased to learn that as of December 1, Linea Caffe is extending their hours. You'll be able to get your artisanal coffee fix until 6 pm nightly. [EaterWire]
