• Pinch-hitting for the soon-to-be-instated Jonathan Kauffman, John Birdsall takes us to Sundance Kitchen, where Pat De Silva is “producing Hawaiian plate-lunch dishes that are among the tastiest, most meticulously plated you’re likely to encounter. Maybe anywhere.” [SF Weekly]

• Paul Reidinger loves Tony’s Tony’s Pizza Napoletana, which “has an air of Neapolitan or Roman authenticity that goes far beyond the pies themselves and is really unmatched in this respect by any of the newer places, despite their commendable pizzas.” [SF Weekly]

• Chronicle special Nicholas Boer delivers a two-star update for Pleasant Hill’s Sichuan Fortune House, where chef-partner Allen Shi is using his experience as a Panda Express manager “in what he calls an East meets West ‘experiment.’ It seems to be working.” [SF Chronicle]
