Some random updates for you: first up, we have a name for the business Duncan Ley and Ben Bleiman (Tonic, Bullitt, Rebel) are opening in the BISSAP BAOBAB space on Mission: it will be called MAYHEM, named after Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem band from The Muppets. Baobab is closing on June 1st, and will be moving into their location around the corner. Mayhem is slated to open the last week of June. 2323 Mission St. at 19th St.

Over in Hayes Valley, The Feast brings word that Paulette (the macaron shop) is now CHANTAL GUILLON, “named after the Parisian manager of the store.” The space is currently closed for remodeling, and there’s no word yet about the reopening. The piece mentions her “macarons will now be made with organic ingredients and natural flavorings and colorings (and still gluten-free).” 437 Hayes St. at Gough, 415-864-2400.

Eater released news of a new ramen place called RAMEN DORAKU, and SFoodie already went to check it out. 1042 Taraval St. at 20th Ave., 415-592-8801.

A reader wrote in to tell me that the owners of Toast are opening a coffee bar in Glen Park called CUP in June. You can read more in the Glen Park Association blog, which mentions Blue Bottle Coffee and pastries, and it will be open 6am-6pm. 6 Monterey Blvd. at Diamond.
