Shazam! Fillmore Mexican becomes Pescara, Tokyo Express Appears in a Puff of Smoke

​The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the

San Francisco restaurant scene.

We lead with Live SoMa, who discovers an “opening soon” sign for a Tokyo Express on the corner of Fourth St. and Mission. The Japanese sushi-slash-bento restaurant already has several other San Francisco locations.

Carolyn A. at Eater SF discovers that Fillmore Mexican Grill has, with splash of paint and a brand new awning, transformed over the course of a weekend into Pescara Ristorante (1552 Fillmore). It's like that weekend when we decided to grow out bangs out and start wearing everything black in our closet, and suddenly we were a newer, angrier teenager. The pitch, so far: Italian and American food.
