Venga is Coming, Jeremy Fox Just Stopping By

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

Turnover turnabout: Inside Scoop reports on Manuel Godino's plans to move Venga Empanadas into its very own 10-seat brick-and-mortar at 443 Valencia (at 15th St.). Launch date: In about two weeks. SFoodie offers two words of advice for Godino: wheelchair ramp.

Bar wars: Eater talks to Rye and 15 Romolo founders Jon Gasparini and Greg Lindgren, who seem to be challenging Bourbon and Branch for Total Barstool Dominance via still-emerging plans for a Eurobar at 603 Mission (at Jessie). It's on like ― whatever the European equivalent of Donkey Kong is.
