Some quick updates around town: first, tablehopper tipster Jason B. let me know Fat Angel is going to be opening a second project in the neighborhood in the fall, ~CITY GRANGE~. Stand by for more details soon.

Also in the neighborhood, ~PRIME DIP SANDWICHES~ on Larkin Street will be opening a second location at 1515 Fillmore Street in the former Jubili.

Jason also mentioned ~PHARAOHS MEDITERRANEAN SANDWICHES~ has opened in the former Juice Zone space on Geary, serving Mediterranean wraps, and it has an extensive Egyptian breakfast menu. 608 Geary St. at Jones, 415-292-7271.

Sad news: according to Eater, chef-owner Guddu Haider of ~LAHORE KARAHI~ has sold the business. Wah! Seriously bummed. Like, a lot.

The Richmond blog announces the opening of ~ONO GRINDZ~, a new Hawaiian restaurant with a bit of a health-conscious approach. It sounds like the husband-and-wife team are on to something good. Open daily for breakfast and lunch 8am-3pm. 832 Clement St. at 10th Ave., 415-221-4746.

Speaking of mahalo vibe, chef Ravi Kapur and his ~LIHOLIHO YACHT CLUB~ crew have just announced new dates for the pop-up at ~CITIZEN’S BAND~: Monday May 14th, 21st, and 28th. Per usual, the feast is $65, inclusive of tax and tip; beverages are additional. Just wait until you try the smoked tako (octopus) and Korean fried quail. Reservations are only being taken through OpenTable, and it’s best if you do it through the Citizen’s Band website. If you can’t find a time you want, keep checking back since it’s very common for last-minute cancellations (um, lame!).

According to permits, ~MEHFIL INDIAN RESTAURANT~ is opening a third location at 28 2nd St. at Stevenson.

More permit action: Grub Street and Eater notice the Palo Alto-based ~SLIDERBAR CAFÉ~ appears to be the next business to move into the former Criolla Kitchen and Bagdad Café space. 2295 Market St. at 16th St.

A couple months ago, I mentioned a business called ~V-105~ (not to be confused with Alberto V05) was opening in the former Jackie’s Vinoteca space; the Scoop fills in with some details on who’s behind it. Chef-owner Daniel Martes (formerly Garibaldis) and his wife are making sandwiches on homemade bread, plus some salads, pastries, and more. Open Mon-Fri 8am-5pm; hours will expand in coming weeks. 105 Valencia St. at McCoppin, 415-525-3799.
