After suffering a nasty building fire months ago, ~MOYA ETHIOPIAN RESTAURANT AND COFFEEHOUSE~ will be resurfacing in another SoMa location. LiveSOMA says Moya is hoping to reopen by December 1st, and will be serving “locally roasted coffee, tea, pastries, and fresh artisan sandwiches and salads in addition to [their] special Ethiopian selection.” Beer and wine will also be served. 121 9th St. at Minna.

Eater reports ~LA OAXAQUEÑA~ has reopened after their (fortunately temporary) closure back in August. It’s hot chocolate time! 2128 Mission St. at 17th St, 415-621-5446.

A couple more locations of ~THE MELT~ are opening: at One Embarcadero Center and 345 Spear Street, serving new sweet options as well.

SFGate has details on the closure of ~LITTLE BIRD~, a Tenderloin café. 835 Geary St. at Larkin.

Not too far away from Little Bird, Eater reports ~CANDY DARLING~ has shuttered. 798 Sutter St. at Jones.

Grub Street reports the Castro Gold’s Gym location of ~BEAUTIFULL!~ has closed. 2301 Market St. at Noe.

The Richmond blog mentions ~YET WAH~ has closed. 2140 Clement St. at 22nd Ave.

A fired-up reader (or perhaps a friend of the business I’m about to mention) reports having a delicious sausage from ~THE MISSING LINK~ cart downtown. The cart specializes in wild game sausage (elk, pheasant, boar, antelope, bison, boar). Mon-Fri 10:30am-2:30pm. 768 Sansome St. at Pacific.

And starting this Thursday, ~PAL’S TAKEAWAY~ in the Mission is going to be making TV dinners that you can bring home and warm up. This week it’s brined and roasted chicken breast with maple vinegar sauce, smashed fingerling potatoes from Martin Bournehouse with black olives, pimentón, parsley, and sautéed River Dog Farm rainbow chard with golden raisins. Just $12; available at Pal’s for pickup every Thursday, but there will just be a limited number to start.
