Wrap Delight Goes Mexican-Vietnamese, Pudong to Bring Vietnamese-French to the Castro

​The past 72 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the

San Francisco restaurant scene.

Inside Scoop's Paolo L. learns that a pair of Shanghai 1930 staffers are planning to open Pudong (2029 Market) in the former Mecca space. The pitch: Shanghainese food with French accents.

Humin at Tenderblog snaps a shot of the dueling signboards outside Wrap Delight (426 Larkin), a Vietnamese banh mi shop now selling tacos and burritos as well. Is this, you ask, the first Mexican-Vietnamese restaurant in San Francisco? No, it is not.

Inside Scoop

also has some good news for anyone not living in Santa Cruz — Charlie

Parker, a Manresa alumnus recently profiled in the NYT for his food at

Bonny Doon's Cellar Door, is going to become the chef at Plum, Daniel Patterson's Oakland restaurant.
