Diamond Lil Makes a Public Appearance, Manresa Bulks Out
Item the first: Eater says the bustaurant named Diamond Lil will be making two rare public appearances this week: It parks outside Spencer and Daniels (1541 Polk) today from 5 to 8 p.m. and at Public Bike (2125 Harrison) from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Inside Scoop says that Manresa, the Los Gatos four-star, will transform a patio into another dining room, increasing the dinner seating to 65. The build-out will also include a small lounge specializing in "garden" cocktails. The restaurant will close the week after Valentine's Day, but the owners do not anticipate any other construction closures.
