    POLK GULCH—A few weeks ago, news came out that the Zeki's folks were taking over the shuttered O'Reilly's Holy Grail and calling it Midpoint. Now, as the space gets a facelift from its medieval look, details continue to trickle in. Fernando Plazola has been hired as the executive chef; Plazola is the chef/owner of Ward Street Cafe in Larkspur (its Chron review here), and before that, he was at Postrio.

Currently, mid to late November is the tentative aim.
