Stuff your face in new and exciting ways! Here’s this week’s roundup of openings, closings, and other food-related miscellany:
Rockridge wine bar Toast (which we wrote about in a cover story a couple months back) officially opened for business on Tuesday and is offering 30 wines by the glass, red wine on tap, and a smallish tapas menu. Eater SF has graciously uploaded a PDF of the opening menu here and has plenty photos of the space (at 5900 College Ave.) here.

The folks behind adorably named Pleasant Hill tapas-y place Nibblers Eatery & Wine Bar are opening a new “farm to fork” restaurant in the space most recently occupied by (dearly departed) Locanda da Eva. According to Diablo Dish, the restaurant, opening sometime this summer, will be called Origen and will focus on local, sustainably sourced, smallish plates:
Origen will offer a daily changing prix fixe menu in addition to a la carte options with an International flair that will also include casual fare such as a burger and wood fired pizzas to take advantage of the existing brick oven.
