Another Pop-Up Goes Perm, John Colins Gets a Pop-Up Replacement, and More

Bayview: An anonymous tipster tells Grub Street that pop-restaurant Radio Africa & Kitchen has just signed a lease at 4800 Third Street. This along with the opening of Yats New Orleans Original Po Boys in the same development marks a great food-driven catalyst for Bayview business. Update: It turns out Yats has decided on a new location, and Radio Africa is taking its place at 4800 3rd. Also, we hear that chef Eskender Aseged of Radio Africa will be planting a garden to supply his restaurant. [Grub Street]
SoMa/Downtown: The John Colins space, at 90 Natoma, is becoming Trattoria 1910, a limited time, pop-up eatery that appears to be a 100th anniversary promotional vehicle for Gallo Salame. It’ll be open for “café nights” from 5 to 7 p.m., Tuesday to Friday, May 26th to June 18th, where you can sample free salame-based recipes. [Eater]
Pacific Heights: Citizen Cake is now hoping to reopen in their new space, 2125 Fillmore, on or around May 20th. [Grub Street, Earlier]

Berkeley: The space that formerly housed Azerbauijan Restaurant and Orso, at 2175 Allston Way, is turning over again and becoming something called Saturn Café. [Grub Street]
Corte Madera: Scott Howard is sticking to his plan to open his restaurant Brick & Bottle in quite a hurry, on May 31st, in what was just recently Izzy’s Steakhouse (55 Tamal Vista). [SFoodie]
