Tim Stannard of Bacchus Management Group—whose latest culinary offering is Woodside’s The Village Bakery—has long wanted to open a great steakhouse. This fall, that ambition will be fulfilled when Selby’s bows in the space formerly occupied by Chantilly. 3001 El Camino Real, Redwood City

The owners of downtown hot spots Original Gravity and Paper Planes are going for a trifecta. Their arcade bar with a retro vibe, miniBoss, is expected to debut this summer in what was previously Toons Piano Bar. E. Santa Clara Ave., San Jose

Bottle Shop
Zu Tarazi, who along with his wife, Kristi Borrone, runs Kristie Marie’s in downtown Redwood City, is set to open a nearby wine bar this summer. Expect a California-centric wine list as well as Champagne. 2627 Broadway St., Redwood City

All eyes are on this project, opening this summer, by chef-partner Greg Kuzia-Carmel of San Francisco’s Cotogna and New York’s Per Se; managing partner Logan Levant of Buttercake Bakery in Los Angeles; and Roland Passot of La Folie in San Francisco. 898 Santa Cruz Ave., Menlo Park

Babka by Ayelet
Get ready for irresistible babkas—both sweet and savory—from Tel Aviv-born pastry chef Ayelet Turgeman Nuchi. Hers are decidedly moister and more cakelike than others and will come in four sizes. 855 El Camino Real (Town & Country Village), Palo Alto

Manresa Bread
Look for a third brick-and-mortar location from star baker Avery Ruzicka that will feature patented crusty artisan loaves made from flour milled in-house, along with buttery kouign-amanns, croissants and quiche. 195 E. Campbell Ave., Campbell
