RIP Una Pizza Napoletana

We finally know what’s going into the space formerly home to San Francisco’s most beloved, cultish pizza: a bubble tea shop. Specifically, it’s going to be the first storefront for online tea shop Sweet A Little. Unlike most other boba haunts, Sweet A Little aims to make healthy-ish bubble tea and seal drinks up in compostable products. It should open this fall.

Mother and son, cooking together

James Syhabout, the celebrated chef-owner of Commis and Hawker Fare, heads to Tartine Manufactory for a special dinner celebrating his recent Hawker Fare cookbook on August 28. Syhabout will cook alongside Tartine Manufactory chef Christa Chase as well as his mother, preparing a la carte dishes (read: hella delicious and fiery Lao/Thai eats) inspired by the book. Beers will, naturally, come from Syhabout’s brewery, Old Kan.

Rush Bowls enters the Bay Area

Colorado-based chain Rush Bowls opened its first Bay Area location yesterday at 1935 Addison Street in Berkeley. The concept focuses on more than 40 smoothie bowls: thickly blended fruits and vegetables finished with toppings such as organic granola and honey. An Oakland location is also on its way.

East Bay pho

Berkeley’s Le Pho Restaurant just launched a second location at 2228 Broadway in Oakland, located in the former Old Brooklyn Cafe & Bakery. The new restaurant offers a much more pared down menu compared to the original, featuring a mix of spring rolls, pho (including a vegetarian option), and build-your-own vermicelli and rice bowls.

Half Moon Bay Brewing Company gets a new chef

Grant Kester is now the brewery’s executive chef. He’s worked in a slew of South Bay kitchens, including Prova in Morgan Hill, Steamer’s Grillhouse in Los Gatos, and — more unexpectedly — behind multiple sushi bars.
