MISSION— Oh, give me a home where the buffalo (soft serve) roams: Bi-Rite Creamery is now using buffalo milk from Double 8 Dairy in Petaluma to make their soft serve. From now through the end of March, stop by the soft serve window on 18th Street to try the creamy treat. The flavors change daily, but include favorites like chocolate and fior di latte. [EaterWire]

SOUTH PARK— American Grilled Cheese Kitchen is upping the gooey ante, with new menu offerings set to launch next week. The updated menu will offer decadent selections like Adam's Rueben, made with jarlsberg cheese, pastrami, stout mustard, Brussels "kraut," pickles and garlic butter on local rye, all slathered with Russian dressing. And for those awaiting word on the shop's new location at Broadway and Battery, they're targeting a July opening. [EaterWire]
