For all you people who bemoaned the demise of Sears, it reopened Monday. Here's the SFGATE link which also mentions other restaurant openings
Home in Berkeley (Falling-off-the-bone short ribs melt into a porcini ragu ... sounds good)
Bendean (Velasquez's California-Mediterranean)
Colibri Mexican Bistro ... on Geary near the theatres where the old California Pizza Kitchen was.
Mangarosa ... Italian/Brazilian
Here's the link. Anyone tried any of these places yet?
