SOMA—Charles Phan's new restaurant, The Coachman, made its debut in the former Heaven's Dog on Monday, with British-inspired cuisine. Check it out and see the menus.

SAN FRANCISCO—Beef tartare is showing up on seemingly every menu in town. Here are 18 of our favorite spots to try it, in variations from French to Spanish to Italian to NorCal eclectic.

NOE VALLEY—After 12 years and a host of groundbreaking innovations, Chris Cosentino and Mark Pastore are calling it a day at Incanto. It'll become a more casual restaurant/market called Porcellino.

NORCALGet the first glimpse of Blue Bottle's packaged New Orleans iced coffee, before it hits shelves at every Whole Foods in the Bay Area over the next couple of weeks. The container is seriously adorable.

BAY AREA—The Eater Heatmap got its monthly update, with all the hot new restaurants to check out as March rolls on.

NOPA/WESTERN ADDITION—The minds behind The Mill, Josey Baker, Jodi Geren, and Jeremy Tooker, sat down to talk One Year In. It's a notably funny and candid interview, with $4 toast criticism, pizza, and the coffee business all up for discussion.

SOMA—The controversy over Google Glass hasn't abated since the Molotov's incident last week. The Willows' owner chatted with us about why she decided to ban the glasses altogether from her bar.

THE EMBARACADERO—Humphry Slocombe made its big debut at the Ferry Building on Wednesday, with exclusive flavors scheduled to arrive very soon.
