Actually Hyde Away’s Delayed Again, Los Cotrachos Comes to Excelsior, and More

Tenderloin: Due to their pitmaster recovering from surgery for a pinched nerve, Hyde Away Blues BBQ (457 Hyde Street) won’t be opening Friday as reported, but more like in a few weeks. But, since they got a ton of publicity, they’ll be hosting a freebie giveaway on Friday afternoon at 3 p.m., featuring gumbo and whatnot, like they did on Valentine’s Day.

Union Square: Startender Neyah White, lately a rep for Yamazaki Japanese whiskeys, will be co-hosting a benefit for the Japanese Food Bank at the Burritt Room next week along with Umamimart and featuring bites from Peko Peko. The fun starts at 8 p.m. on April 5, and there will be musical entertainment. Tickets: $40/$45 at the door. [Facebook]
Excelsior: The former Costa Del Sol (4423 Mission Street) space is morphing into Los Cotrachos, a Honduran restaurant. [Grub Street]
Berkeley: Akasaka (2650 Telegraph), the shuttered sushi place, is becoming something called Bacheeso. [Grub Street]

Bernal Heights: Vegan ice cream parlor Maggie Mudd has shuttered, largely because the location was bad and “so far away from one of its core audiences.” But don’t all Mission vegans have bicycles? [Vegansaurus]
Oakland: In other meat-and-dairy-free news, vegan Filipino restaurant No Worries (1442 Franklin Street, Oakland) has just secured a beer and wine license. [Grub Street]
Sonoma: A chef shuffle is afoot at Carneros Bistro as chef Janine Falvo is moving to Atlanta. The restaurant has begun their search for a replacement. [Scoop]
Menlo Park: Marché officially closed over the weekend. [Scoop, Earlier]
