A year ago, I broke the news that Tartine was opening a location in the former Standard Roofing Co. on 9th Avenue in the Inner Sunset, and a very diligent tablehopper reader has been providing me with updates on the project. Last week, he informed me Tartine got final approval for their permits (e.g. full restaurant status), and someone at Tartine said that they estimate July 15th as the planned opening date.

According to planning records, it’s going to be serving breakfast, along with lunch and dinner. There will be a café, dining room, interior garden (facing the street), and sun room, with a number of skylights (you can peek at their plans from Studio BBA here). Proposed hours are 7am-10pm. I’ll get more details for you in the next tablehopper issue! 1226 9th Ave. at Lincoln.

I was walking through my neighborhood and couldn’t believe my eyes: a sign for ~BOB’S DONUTS AND PASTRIES~ was on the window of the former Chile Pies at Baker and Fulton. Eater confirmed that yes, it really is THAT Bob’s. Owner Elinor Ahn’s wonderful crumb doughnuts and apple fritters are coming to Nopa and we’re all doomed. Stand by for opening timing, hours, and more. 601 Baker St. at Fulton.

Fans of the Instagram-ready ~U DESSERT STORY~ in the Castro (which is just next door to the cult-like brunch outpost, Kitchen Story) now have a second location to visit in the Marina, U Dessert Story, Vintage. Taking over the former MINA Test Kitchen space, you can come in for Japanese, Thai, and Korean brunch during the day (9:30am-3:30pm) and then dessert from 5pm-12am. Eater mentions owner Tammy Boonlieng is serving omurice, the sweet-and-savory Japanese omelet with fried rice inside. 2120 Greenwich St. at Fillmore. [Via The Chronicle]

Driving along South Van Ness, I spotted a sign for ~TSELOGS~, the Filipino comfort food spot that previously had a location in Daly City (now closed) and on Jones (still open, and with awesome late-night hours, I might add!). Their upcoming Mission location is due to have their grand opening in mid-July, with some soft opening test runs by the end of this month. There are 49 seats and chef Gilla tells me they will be serving their regular menu, with chef specials on a daily basis, plus beer and wine. Follow their Insta for updates. 514-518 S. Van Ness Ave. at 16th St.
