Lines for loaves: Ahhh, the power of brioche! We're delighted to hear that San Franciscans are making the Sunday morning trek south for loaves of bread and other baked goods from the Manresa Bread Project. The "project" is actually an ultra-popular booth at the ultra-popular Campbell farmers market stocked by David Kinch's Michelin-starred Los Gatos restaurant, and customers line up here like commuters on Highway 101. Walnut ryes, seeded boules and epi baguettes are heaped alongside rows of focaccia (maybe green onion, potato-gruyere or olive-rosemary), with little $2 chocolate brioches for morning snacking. The loaves don't come cheap ($8-$12), but it's the most affordable taste you're going to find of Manresa, where the prix fixe menu costs $125.
Details: Campbell Avenue, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., but the Manresa line starts forming about 8:30.
A third Sol: The Peninsula's popular Palo Alto Sol and Vive Sol Mountain View restaurants now have an upscale sibling, the new Quinto Sol in Redwood City. The restaurant owned by Hector and Helena Sol is part of that downtown's Renaissance 2.0, and it's located in a prime spot near the Fox Theatre and the Century 20 movie theaters. The "poblana" style menu is big on enchiladas, with sauces ranging from guajillo to mole and tomatillo; camarones (shrimp) served four ways; plus other seafood. Details: 2201 Broadway, Redwood City. 650-365-5765; www.vivesol.biz.
Bold Knight reborn: Our colleague Mary Gottschalk tracked down the latest on San Jose's Bold Knight, which closed in 2012, and it's good news for fans of the BK fondue. Restaurateur Jamie Armas of Las Cazuelas on Race Street has taken over the site -- it's now The Bold Knight by Las Cazuelas -- and is offering a blended menu of his dishes and Bold Knight faves, she reports. Details: Open daily at 840 N. First St., San Jose. 408-297-2170; www.theboldknight.com.
