Looking for a new, cozy spot for dinner? ~LE MARAIS CASTRO~ has just added dinner service, offering their everyday French classic dishes (French onion soup, Lyonnaise salad, croque monsieur, rotisserie chicken, boudin blanc, frites), plus a few weekend specials, like poulet pané (pan-fried chicken) and bœuf bourguignon. Plus they have wine, beer, and low-ABV beverages! They look forward to feeding the neighborhood! Dîner Wed-Sun 5pm-9pm. 498 Sanchez St. at 18th St.

Fans of ~CASSAVA~ can now enjoy their awesome brunch six days a week! Get their popular fried chicken sandwich, veggie rice bowl, and Japanese breakfast from 10am-2:15pm both on weekdays and weekends (but closed Tue)! And they now accept brunch reservations throughout the week. 3519 Balboa St. at 36th Ave.

Have you had a chance to enjoy the delicious Detroit-style pizza (and salads!) at ~SQUARE PIE GUYS~ in SoMa yet? They recently launched weekday lunch service, and added a new format (a selection of five different personal pizzas per day, with one rotating daily) and new dishes to the menu: Calabrese Hot Chicken Sandwich (I love their Buffalo chicken parm sandwich), a Papa Boach Salad (roasted kabocha squash, marinated cauliflower, arugula, green olives, and a red curry coconut vinaigrette), and the Square-Waiian Pizza (sliced ham, pickled red onion and jalapeño, pineapple). Hours are Tue-Fri 11:30am-2pm and 4:30pm-10pm, and they open at 4pm on Sat. 1077 Mission St. at 7th St.
