ICHI Sushi Relocates to Bernal Heights

ICHI Sushi has relocated and reopened in its original location just a few blocks down Mission Street. After an emergency health issue for chef-owner Tim Archuleta, he and his wife/business partner decided to move the restaurant back to its original location, which has served as a pop-up space and short-lived oyster bar over the past year. The 21-seat location will continue to offer delicious, sustainably sourced sushi along with an omakase menu. ICHI will also be starting lunch service soon. // Open daily, 3369 Mission St (Bernal Heights), ichisushi.com



The Riddler Opens in Hayes Valley

The Riddler, a highly anticipated, all women-funded Champagne bar, finally opened its doors in Hayes Valley on Sunday. The restaurant offers a large list of over 100 Champagne selections with a focus on vintage wines and specific grower-producers and founder Jen Pelka enlisted the help of other female badasses in the food industry to create a menu of small bites that pair well with wine. Collaborators include Deborah Keane of California Caviar, Dafna Kory of INNA Jam, Kelly McVicker of McVicker Pickles, and more. // Open Tuesday-Sunday, 528 Laguna St. (Hayes Valley), theriddlersf.com


Trick Dog's New Menu

Trick Dog is celebrating its 4th anniversary with a newly released cocktail menu (their ninth!). The Mission bar brought together 14 local artists to paint 14 different murals around San Francisco and then turned all of the murals into a book called The Trick Dog Mural Project. Sales of the book benefit Precita Eyes, a non-profit community-based mural arts organization. // Open daily, 3010 20th St (Mission), trickdogbar.com
