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

It's true. Medjool has a new face at the helm, while Gus Murad remains the landlord. Inside Scoop reports that Adriano Paganini (Beretta, Delarosa, Starbelly, Super Duper) has plans for a Latin-themed menu after renovations are complete. Yes, this means the roof deck will be closing for a bit as well.

Dumpling & Buns is not long for this world. The 6-month-old restaurant will shutter this Sunday, according to Eater SF. Owner May Lee's husband received a job offer on the other side of the country, so they're packing up and heading to Pittsburgh.

Get your bowling shoes ready. LiveSOMA announces the official opening date for Lucky Strike Lanes is March 9. We're curious what the best bowling-friendly food item on the menu is.

A dive no more. The Uptown Almanac discovers Mission Hill Saloon will close Feb. 27 and later reopen under new ownership. The new team behind this bar? The Dear Mom crew.

Cerveceria de MateVeza continues to make progress toward its March opening in the old Lilah Bell space, and now Eater SF brings word of the brews they'll be serving there. The tiny space will squeeze in some test brews (for their larger Mendocino Brewing Co. facility) and offer a few selections from other Bay Area microbrews. Also, just a reminder, the food focus will be on Argentinian cuisine.
