This month in restaurant openings, Philly got an Afrocentric grocer-slash-café, and in San Francisco, a Malaysian street food pop-up opened a permanent space. We spend a lot of time keeping up with new restaurants, and there’s a lot to keep track of. To help you do just that, we’ll be here at the end of each month with an update on the latest round of notable restaurant openings across the country. We’re already doing the work in preparation for our annual Best New Restaurants list, but even when its release is months away, we want you to know where we’re most looking forward to eating. In October, that includes exciting new restaurants in Austin, New York, and East Grand Forks, MN. Here are seven new restaurants to keep an eye on.

This list, organized alphabetically by state, includes both restaurants we’ve tried and ones we’ve added to our bucket lists.

A San Francisco pop-up finds a permanent home for Malaysian street food

1781 Church St, San Francisco, CA 94131
Opened October 19

Upon moving to San Francisco in 2012, chef Tracy Goh hosted pop-up dinners in her one-bedroom apartment. As her popularity grew, she began serving her laksa at other locations throughout the Bay Area. At Damansara, her brick and mortar restaurant in the Noe Valley neighborhood, there are two options for Goh’s beloved laksa—to please both meat-eaters and vegetarians. But with this restaurant, named after her hometown in Malaysia, Goh wants to broaden the reach of Malaysian cuisine in America, showcasing street-style dishes beyond the popular noodle soup. There’s otak-otak, a spiced coconut fish cake grilled in banana leaves, and a rich beef rendang. There is also a chef-recommended selection of small plates.

TV personality Molly Yeh makes a splash with her first restaurant

121 Demers Ave, East Grand Forks, MN 56721
Opened October 1

Molly Yeh is the bubbly personality behind the Food Network show Girl Meets Farm and the recently released cookbook Home is Where the Eggs Are. Now, Yeh is bringing her recipes to Bernie’s, a new restaurant named after her daughter. The menu, which will soon expand to include dinner service, blends Midwestern flavors with some Scandinavian influence. Yeh also adds “a touch of Jewish flare,” to her menu, as she told Forbes. Think smorgasbords, whitefish toast, and halva walnut scones. This space was previously home to the restaurant Whitey’s, which was open for almost 100 years. Bernie’s will take on the historic location with three distinct concepts: one centered on carryout and counter service, one on table service, and one a market featuring Yeh’s favorite pantry ingredients and Bernie’s merch. For those obsessed with Yeh’s playful desserts, there will be a rotating pastry display, with the likes of sprinkle cake donuts and frosted almond cookie bars.
