SoMa: SF Caf (1161 Mission) was open a few weeks back, we swear, but now it's closed, with a full sandwich menu still on the board inside and the counters set up for service. Permitting issues perhaps? [Grub Street]
Dogpatch: Magnolia Gastropub and Brewery is planning a second outpost at 22nd and 3rd, across from Serpentine. [Tablehopper]
Bernal Heights: Della Terra Organics has backed out of the 331 Cortland Marketplace, marking the first available stall since the place opened. [SFoodie]

Laurel Heights: Spruce has a new executive pastry chef: Mie Uchida, who is moving over from La Folie and previously worked at Mecca. [Scoop]
Castro: And in more Mecca alumni news, Ryan Pollnow has been named the new executive chef at Home. [Tablehopper]
More SoMa: Medici Lounge (Folsom & 9th), which we've previously declared closed, remains on the market but still comes back from the dead every so often to serve drinks or host infrequent events, as they did over the weekend during the Up Your Alley street fair. [Grub Street]
Western Addition: New taqueria El Rancho has opened at 855 Divisidero. [Tablehopper]
Albany: The new East Bay branch of Little Star opens this week. [Tablehopper]
