S.F. Buzz: Brandon Jew Leaves Bar Agricole, An E-40 Winery, & More

We’ve wrapped up yet another week and to celebrate we’re delivering the best bites of news in S.F. we could find. So, take a sec, peep this little roundup and consider yourself schooled on all local happenings.
When you’re craving mac and cheese, sometimes an hour wait just isn’t acceptable. Oakland spot Homeroom has just unveiled a new drive-thru mac and cheese window of sorts (it’s actually just curb-side pick up), so you can get your cheese on in a flash. Download the app, asap! (Homeroom)
We didn’t see this one coming — legendary Bay Area rapper E-40 is doing a little career switch-a-roo. He was recently spotted in Napa scoping out wineries. Does this make anyone else extraordinarily excited? Burning question: What will it be named ("I Got Grapes," FTW)? Only time will tell! (Tablehopper)
And another one we didn’t see coming — chef Brandon Jew is bidding Bar Agricole toodle-loo. Yes, just days after he let us peek into his at-home fridge, he announced that he is parting ways with the resto to begin working on a new Chinese-inspired restaurant. (Grub Street SF)
A new upscale Mexican joint just opened in Cole Valley — perhaps making the quaint neighborhood hipper? We’ll let you decide. See Eater’s tour of Padrecito right here. (Eater SF)
Still buzzing from the epic Diana Vreeland doc? Well, 7x7 sat down with the director (who also happens to be Vreeland’s daughter-in-law) of “The Eye Has To Travel” and got all the deets on the flick. (7x7)
