DOWNTOWN— Danji is now open on Bishop. The name, according to the new restaurant's Facebook page, "means 'pot'. Traditionally, a Danji was used to store important sources of fermented side dishes and sauces such as Kimchi, Zganji, soybean sauce (Ganjang), anchovy sauce (Jeutguk), soybean paste (Daenjang) and hot pepper paste (Gochujang)." The considerable menu includes bi bim bap, noodle, rice and meat dishes to share. Of note: Korean fried chicken. [Facebook]

PLATEAU— The likes of Ripples and Yeh! have some new competition with the arrival of La Diperie on the corner of des Pins and Saint-Dominique.
