SoMa: Baan Thai and Whiskey Lounge and The Alchemist, a new restaurant and bar, are en route into the former Spire space (685 Third Street). The Alchemist will be a low-key bar in the upstairs space, with shuffleboard. [Scoop, Earlier]
Mission: Sugoi Sushi is likely only to live for the next year. That condo project at 1050 Valencia got approved. [Curbed]
Union Square: Bourbon Steak is doing a bourbon-pairing menu. [Eater]
Oakland: Here's more love for Doughnut Dolly. [SFoodie]
Las Vegas: We know we don't usually cover the Vegas beat, but we thought you should know that Eva Longoria is opening a steakhouse geared toward women called SHe. It opens New Year's Eve. [Chow]
