Jonathan Kauffman Lives Large, Bar Dogwood Thinks Small

The past 72 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco restaurant scene.

This is not Jonathan Kauffman.
Dear diary: Grub Street asked our own Jonathan Kauffman to document a typical week's worth of food-critic consumption, and Kauffman obliged with a snapshot of five days in February. Dude, how are you not the spitting image of Augustus Gloop in vintage flannel and indigo-wash jeans?

Uptown, girl: Grub Street also notes the launch of Bar Dogwood at 1644 Telegraph (at 17th St.), in Oakland's Uptown neighborhood. The pitch: cocktails, cheese plates, meats cured in-house, a Monday industry night, and what Dogwood's Facebook page calls "really small small-plates."

Pigs working overtime: The Feast reports that America is poised to get stinky with truffles, after wholesale importer Sabatino North America launches a chain of bicoastal retail funghi shops. The first Sabatino & Co Roma is opening in Boston next week; San Francisco should have one of its own by the end of the year. The way we see it, you've got seven, maybe eight months to prepare.
