By

Your guide to the tastiest foodie happenings going down this week. Bon Appetit! 

BUILD YOUR OWN QUINOA BOWL AT EATSA

If you're really craving quinoa for lunch (said no one at 7x7, ever), you're in luck: Eatsa opened to much fanfare in the Financial District last month offering fresh and flavorful customized quinoa bowls. Stop in to build your own bowl using the in-store iPads or your phone at this novel new eatery featuring a virtual cashier, and (seemingly) no wait time. // 121 Spear Street, San Francisco, eatsa.com

GLEN ELLEN STAR GOES PALEO 

Continue on the diet trend train with a stop at Glen Ellen Star to taste from their new paleo menu. Starting Wednesday, September 16, and every following Wednesday through October 28, Glen Ellen Star will offer a paleo pickup dinner menu including such dishes as grass-fed flatiron with cauliflower and salsa verde; wood roasted padron peppers with shabazi spice; and artichoke escabeche with red wine vinegar and compressed radicchio. The offer coincides with the Lurong Living Challenge, a seven week CrossFit competition that combines diet and fitness to foster results. // $27.50 per person per menu, 13648 Arnold Drive, Glen Ellen, glenellenestar.com

PICNIC ON THIRD OPENS FOR BRUNCH 

Just when you thought the city didn't need any more brunch places, casual eatery Picnic on Third is throwing their hat in the (heaping) pile. Starting Sunday, September 20th from 10am-2pm (and only open only on Sundays for now), you can chow down on tasty comfort food such as overnight chile braised pork with soft polenta, collard greens and poached eggs ($13); two-potato hash with bacon lardons, Brussels sprouts, spring onion and fried eggs ($12.5); or Leigh's stone ground multi-grain pancakes with caramelized apple, maple and cultured butter ($12). House-made chai, espresso drinks from Contraband coffee, house-made cold brew, and Jittery John’s cold brew on nitro round out the beverage offerings. And don't forget to grab a slice of house-made banana hazelnut bread before you go. // 493 3rd St, San Francisco, picniconthird.com

CHILE PIES UNDERGOES MAJOR RENOVATIONS 

Huge changes are underway at Chile Pies. They're planning a remodel, expanding the bakery at their Baker Street location, and have officially closed their Church Street location for good. The sad news: the Baker St. location is closed until September 10. The good news: they'll reopen on Friday, September 11 with new savory pie and cake menus! They're also changing their name to Chile Pies Baking Co. For the grand re-opening weekend on September 19 and 20, they'll be offering a free scoop of ice cream with any pie purchase as well as 2-for-1 cupcakes in an assortment of flavors, including chocolate marble and red velvet. // 601 Baker Street, San Francisco, greenchilekitchen.com
