Ala Romana: The former Rue Saint Jacques space has gotten an Italian enoteca face-lift as chef David Taylor, formerly of A16, leads the kitchen with dishes like wood-fired artichokes, nettle and ricotta gnocchi, and lamb tortellini. 1098 Jackson, 292-3699, alaromana.com.

Nico: Andrea and Nicolas Delaroque have brought French-inspired California cooking to Laurel Heights. The market-driven menu changes daily. Offerings include goat cheese beignets, lamb leg with butternut squash and kohlrabi, and clementine chiboust for dessert. 3228 Sacramento, 359-1000, nicosf.com.

Osmanthus: This new Sichuan venue highlights dishes like ma po tofu, twice-cooked pork belly, and small plates like dry-fried chicken wings with Sichuan peppercorns. 6048 College Ave., Oakland; (510) 923-1233, osmanthusrestaurant.com.

Stones Throw: Taking over the former Luella space, Michael Mina vets have gathered to bring casual, seasonal food that spans cultures. Look for crispy pork chiccarones, squid ink conchiglie, and roasted king salmon. 1896 Hyde.

TBD: The latest restaurant to move into mid-Market comes from the team behind AQ. Dishes are cooked on the custom-built hearth and wood-fire grill, and there's a woodsy, camping theme to the décor. 1077 Mission, 431-1826; TBDrestaurant.com.

Trocadero Club: Dennis Leary and Eric Passetti's new cocktail bar at the corner of Geary and Leavenworth pays homage to the city that has pretty much always had a bar named Trocadero, dating back to an old roadhouse in the Barbary Coast days. 701 Geary, trocaderosf.com.
