Vive La Tarte

LA, meet “tacros”

SoMa-based bakery and cafe Vive La Tarte is expanding to Los Angeles, bringing its classic pastry and zany innovations like stuffed croissants and savory taco croissants to Silver Lake. Belgian couple Julie Vandermeersch and Arnaud Goethals aren’t the first new school bakery from SF to expand to LA: See the cruffin fiends from Mr. Homes Bakehouse, who expanded south in 2016.

Umami Burger closes in the Marina

Union Street is down one Umami Burger: The chain closed its location there for undisclosed reasons, directing customers instead to its SoMa location “nearby.”

18 Reasons turns 10

Bi-Rite’s non-profit community cooking school on 18th Street is celebrating a decade in the business this month with a few events of note, including “The Delicious Story Behind Blemished Produce” on June 15: See their whole birthday schedule here.

Cento Osteria is open for lunch

New Embarcadero Italian restaurant Cento Osteria is now in the lunch game at 100 Brannan Street: As of yesterday, weekday lunch is 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
