San Francisco-based chain Proper Food recently added another storefront to its growing list of locations at 525 Market St.
The newest spot, which has been open for about a month, offers the same menu found at its six other locations; "simple, honest fare" like citrus-braised octopus and farro ($13.95), or a "Proper PB&J" made with coconut peanut butter, all-natural jam, bananas, on walnut bread ($6.95).
The hours for this location are Monday through Friday from 7am to 6pm.Financial District: City Counter

City Counter, a "modern luncheonette inspired by the classic Woolworth's lunch counter," opened for business about two weeks ago.
This new eatery in the Financial District serves a variety of sandwiches, salads and desserts, all without breaking the bank. The two most expensive items, the roast beef sandwich and crispy chickpeas & tuna salad, cost $14 each. Beer and wine are available.
Open Monday-Saturday, 11-7pm, City Counter has happy hour specials during the week from 4pm until closing.Japantown: Uji Time

Back in March, we reported that Berkeley's popular dessert shop, Uji Time, was opening its first location in San Francisco. The new business took over Mitsu Teahouse's former spot inside the Japan Center. We can now report that it's finally open for business.
Along with its signature taiyaki, (fish-shaped pastries stuffed with either red bean paste or Nutella), Uji Time also sells parfaits, soft-serve and mochi ice cream.
Open seven days a week, though hours vary on the weekend.Mission: Indian Palace
2154 Mission St.
Indian Palace has been in business since 2000, but it's now moved from Lower Pac Heights (1760 Fillmore St.) to its current location in the Mission.
The eatery offers a wide variety of Indian dishes, from tandoori specials to seafood dishes, vegetarian options, and more. The new location is open Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 11am to 10:30pm and Thursday–Saturday from 11am to 2:30am.
