INNER SUNSET—A new restaurant, Lalehas debuted in the former home of the 60-year-old Villa Romana, which shuttered earlier this year. Owner Suzan Sarikurt is offering Turkish-inspired fare like wraps, soups, and flatbreads, as well as homemade jam and fresh-baked bread and English muffins. [Hoodline]

TELEGRAPH HILL—Opening a simple coffee stand at Coit Tower is now a process that's taken over a year, with no end in sight. San Francisco, this is why we can't have nice things. [Chron]

SOMA—He may cook Mexican fare at Tacolicious, but Telmo Faria is actually from Portugal, and will be working with his native flavors in a special pop-up this Sunday, December 14 at Merigan Sub Shop. Tickets for the five-course meal are $60 a head. [EaterWire]

SAN FRANCISCO— Mixologists across the land are commemorating the 129th anniversary of the passing of cocktail pioneer Jerry Thomas. December 15 will be a day of celebratory drinking, sponsored by Bols Genever. Find an event around town, and you too can drink like a pioneer.  [EaterWire]
