Dinner vs. Nature

This post in Burritophile’s Burrito Files should strike fear into the heart of all green-blooded guacamole lovers. While San Franciscans look from their redwood structures to the fog bank and back to their tinderbox homes with thankful eyes, it does appear the Southern California wildfires will affect us locally after all.
How will a city that runs on super burritos be transformed by a jump in guacamole prices? Probably very little, aside from more folks calling for “regular.” It’s still too bad, though.
But in more cheerful disaster-related news, the lauded Helmand Palace, a victim of February’s landslide in North Beach, has opened a new set of doors in Russian Hill. A commenter on Chowhound reports that the buffet is gone, but the menu and famous-by-association proprietor remain intact. The hillside restoration, on the other hand, has not gone as smoothly.
