The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco restaurant scene.

Grub Street notes the reopening of the newly christened Tres. Founding partners Eric Rubin and Barry Augus may have moved on to work on their tequila brand, Tres Agaves (hence the name change), but the bar-restaurant is expanding the number of tequilas on its back bar.

The Chron/Inside Scoop has noted the passing of three Bay Area legends: Henry Africa (inventor of the fern bar and proprietor of Eddie Rickenbacker's), Juanita Musson (a North Bay character SFoodie is now sad we never met), and Tommy Bermejo (founder of Tommy's Mexican in the Richmond).

Eater reports that Carmen and Benito Solis are transforming Carmen's Restaurant, their Filipino place on Pier 40, into SB40, which specializes in "oysters, barbecue, and burgers."

Tenderblog spots a new sign over the former Indonesia Restaurant space: Pick Me Up Pizza Kitchen (678 Post). However, it is not ready to pick you up yet.
