Recent Openers April 2-8, 2014

Andytown Coffee Roasters: The Outer Sunset's new coffee roaster comes via a former Blue Bottle lead barista and her musician husband. The menu's Irish influenced – soda bread is a signature snack – and lunch and more is on the way. 3655 Lawton, 753-9775, andytownsf.com.

Barrel Head Brewhouse: NoPa has a new neighborhood hang that's not, uh, Nopa in this new brewhouse and restaurant from the folks behind Dear Mom and Thieves Tavern. Brewery won't be fired up for a few weeks, but there's bar food, 35 taps, a cocktail program, and two levels to accommodate the certain-to-come UCSF crowds. 1785 Fulton, barrelheadsf.com.

Il Casaro: Neapolitan-style pizza spot now open in the former Steps of Rome, offering wood-fired pizzas, house-made mozzarella, and fried bar snacks until late. The acting pizzaiolo comes from Tony's. 348 Columbus. 677-9455, ilcasarosf.com.

San Francisco Fried Chicken Company: Pretty much exactly what it sounds like, this fried chicken emporium serves drumsticks, thighs, breasts, wings, and more until 2 a.m., and will likely give Golden Boy a run for its late-night money. 362 Columbus, 989-5443.

Terra Cotta Warrior: S.F.'s third restaurant featuring the cuisine of the Chinese province Xi'an has moved into the Sunset. Expect hand-pulled noodles, plenty of lamb, and soupy dishes with broken flatbread instead of noodles. 2555 Judah.

Trou Normand: Brandy is the theme, and the inspiration for the name, at this new FiDi restaurant and bar from the folks behind Bar Agricole. Charcuterie features prominently. 140 New Montgomery.
