A Taste of What to Expect From Café Ana’s Dinner Menu

••• A Restaurant Guy reader spotted a change-of-ownership notice at Summerland Beach Café. The new owner is Playa Del Verano LLC; I looked into it a bit further, and the principals are Jesse M. Jimenez and Fransico Puc. Dare one hope that the food improve?

••• From a press release about Café Ana’s Friday and Saturday dinner service, which starts this week: “The new menu includes items such as New York Strip Tagliata with Mizuna and Grana Padano, Pollo Ala Plancha with Herbed Potatoes and Jus, and Ricotta Dumplings with Spring Peas and Parmesan Broth, along with favorites such as the Cheeseburger. Dessert offerings will include dishes like Riz au Lait, Chocolate Cake, and Affogato. The launch of dinner brings an end to Cafe Ana’s Friday all-day happy hour. Instead, happy hour will run from 4-6 p.m. on Fridays. Happy hour features select glasses of red and white wines at $6 per glass and all tap beers for $5 per glass.”

••• “The Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to opt in to a law allowing individuals in single-family homes to legally prepare and sell certain foods to the public. The law, based on Assembly Bill 626, creates a new food facility category: microenterprise home kitchen operations. MEHKOs are small-scale operations that provide and sell food from a home facility, including potentially hazardous foods like poultry, meat, and dairy. The cap for compliance is 30 meals per day or 60 meals per week.” —Independent

••• News to me: There’s a CSA of local seafood called Get Hooked Seafood, with pick-up sites all over, including Helena Avenue Bakery, Tri-County Produce, and Pierre Lafond Market & Deli.

••• Congratulations to Lauren Herman and Christina Olufson on the occasion of Bossie’s Kitchen‘s first anniversary!

••• And best of luck to Dalan of Rascal’s! He has quit his carpentry job to devote himself full-time to food.
