The Morris does lunch

The Morris, opened by sommelier Paul Einbund and chef/partner Gavin Schmidt last fall in the Mission’s former Slow Club space, is now expanding to weekday lunch. From 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., grab fare like smoked trout salad or the restaurant’s aged beef burger (with a Chartreuse slushy, if it’s that sort of day). [EaterWire]

Model Bakery spawns “Mini Model” Yountville

The Model Bakery, a St. Helena staple with a second outpost at Napa’s Oxbow Public Market, is taking over the former Coffee Caboose at 6523 Washington Street in Yountville. There, Mini Model as it’s dubbed, will open on June 10 — with free English muffins to the first 200 customers. [EaterWire]

Jai Yun goes pop-up

Chef Chia Ji Nei, whose Chinatown mainstay on Clay Street closed this spring, isn’t done cooking. He’ll be popping up in the New Sun Hong Kong space (Broadway and Grant) starting on June 14. [SFGate]

Oakland is hella vegan

Invoking restaurants like Millennium, Souley Vegan, and Timeless Coffee, VegNews declared Oakland, California the number 5 best Vegan City in the country. Speaking of which, those three destinatinos and more are on Eater’s 18 Essential East Bay Vegan and Vegetarian Restaurants map. Missing from the VegNews top 10, which was dominated by Los Angeles in the top spot? San Francisco. Also: Animal byproducts. [VegNews]
