INNER SUNSET— Hoodline reports that Inner Sunset stalwart, Irving Street Cafe, has quietly closed for business. The family-owned cafe has been operating since 1989, serving inexpensive diner food surrounded by friendly faces. According to neighborhood group, Inner Sunset Park Neighbors, "the space is now being renovated for a soon to be named new restaurant." Stay tuned, denizens of the Inner Sunset, stay tuned.

MISSION— Sadly, it's finally the end of the line for Mission taqueria Ayutla. The family-owned restaurant has said goodbye to the 24th Street space they've shared with Casa Sanchez for the last two and a half years. The Bañuelos family was first forced to move their business after 25 years when the building was sold for condos in 2005. Now, after an increase in rent and soon-to-expire lease, the family decided to call it quits, shutting their door on February 22. [MissionLocal]

FRUITVALE— The Half Orange is now open for business seven days a week, starting Sunday, March 8. The Fruitvale restaurant is also adding a breakfast sandwich to the menu for weekends. Visit them during their new hours, Monday-Saturday 11:30 a.m.-9 p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m.-8 p.m. [Tablehopper]

LOS GATOS— Newly re-opened Manresa is hosting their annual Citrus Modernista Dinner on Sunday, March 8. The multi-course dinner will feature some of farmer Gene Lester's collection of more than 200 citrus varieties, showcasing a different variety in each course. The dinner is $198 per person; call the restaurant for reservations. [EaterWire]
