Russian Hill residents may notice a new look for the Thai ~CHAI-YO~ on Polk: there’s a new sign, upholstery, tabletops, and a second section is being expanded—it will go from about 8 or 10 seats to 20. 1331 Polk St. at Pine, 415-771-2562.

~ENJOY VEGETARIAN RESTAURANT~ is going to be opening a third location sometime this month in the former Morph space in the Richmond. 5344 Geary Blvd. at 17th Ave.

I was very sad to learn from a tablehopper reader that ~PASTORES~ in Bernal, known for Irma’s amazing chilaquiles, is now closed. There is reportedly a change of ownership sign in the window, and the new owners are opening “The Cave Grill.” If anyone knows where Irma can be found, please let me know! 3486 Mission St. at Cortland, 415-642-5385.
