BeBeBar: A mother-and-daughter team owns this Brazilian fresh juice shop, which also peddles empanadas and açai bowls with organic bananas, organic granola, and chia seeds. 3809 18th St., 203-8406.

Cantina Verde: FiDi workers have a new lunch option with this healthy, fast-casual Mexican spot. Fill up on burritos, tacos, bowls, or salads with carne asada, chicken, pork, roast veggies, or tofu. In the morning, find egg-white breakfast burritos. 398 Market St.

Castagna: The popular Marina French restaurant has reopened a year after it was destroyed in an electrical fire. The menu's focus is Nice, the hometown of the sibling co-owners, so expect dishes that combine Provençal, Côte d'Azur, and Italian Riviera cuisines. 2015 Chestnut, 440-4290, castagnasf.com.

Lime Tree Southeast Asian Kitchen: The popular Inner Sunset Malaysian restaurant brings its roti, laksa noodles, and banana leaf salmon to the Inner Richmond. The neon green paint job, thankfully, didn't make it to the second location. 836 Clement, 831-8811, limetreesf.com.

Porcellino: A month after Incanto closed, Chris Cosentino has reopened this more casual Italian deli and sandwich shop in the same Noe Valley location. Expect Boccalone meat, sliced to go and on sandwiches, and a small menu with pasta and entrees like sausage with garlicky rapini and polenta. 1550 Church, 641-4500, porcellinosf.com.

The Sea Star: There are 12 beer taps at this new Dogpatch dive from the folks behind Southern Pacific Brewing. Though "new" and "dive bar" aren't usually concepts that go together, the team wants to keep the space's century-long streak as a dive bar going. 2289 Third St., 552-5330.

Smitten Ice Cream: Hayes Valley's popular ice cream company – known for its gimmicky-yet-delicious method of freezing its product on the spot with liquid nitrogen – has opened its third location in Rockridge. 5800 College Ave., Oakland, (510) 594-7630, smittenicecream.com.

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
