Three New Restaurants to Try Soon

Tapas, breakfast sandwiches, and all-day bakeries.

Patricio Duffoo of Barvale

ETA: December
The newest addition to Adriano Paganini’s San Francisco restaurant empire will be a low-key neighborhood tapas joint specializing in simple Spanish-inspired cocktails. Expect chef Patricio Duffoo to serve classics like pan con tomate and tortilla de patata—but no 45-minute paella.
661 Divisadero St. (At Grove St.)

Cafe Réveille
ETA: Late December
The San Francisco café opens its first East Bay outlet as part of a new plaza from the real estate developer Jamestown. Berkeleyites can look forward to avocado toast, chia pudding, and the mini-chain’s popular breakfast sandwich.
4th St. At Hearst St.

Unnamed Charlie Hallowell project
Hallowell—the chef-restaurateur and wood-oven aficionado behind Pizzaiolo, Boot and Shoe Service, and Penrose—has taken over the enormous former Grand Fare space, with plans to turn it into an all-day bakery-restaurant.
3265 Grand Ave. (Near Santa Clara Ave.)
