[San Francisco] State Bird Provisions wait on a Wednesday?

Two of us are going to the Bird on a Wednesday in early June. Didn't get reservations, so I am wondering if anybody who has been recently can comment on what time we should get there? Thanks Chowhounders!

Kiss of Death for La Boulange

Wow, this is terrible! After many months absence, I returned to the Boulange at my farmer's market today. Its usually what I consider to be the best bread in the bay area, and thats saying a lot. Today I was sadly disappointed. The walnut boulet was dull as dishwater, the crossiant Safeway bakery quality. Has Starbucks already killed this place? How truly sad!!!!

Decent Rye Bread in the east bay?

The bakery at Market Hall in Rockridge has a hearty rye. I bought a loaf a few weeks ago for a pastrimi sandwich, the pastrimi was from Marin Sun Farms. It was sublime!

Luxardo Maraschino Cherries

Genoa Italian Deli on Telegraph in Oakland has amarena whild cherries for 5.29 a jar. Have gone through several jars on Mariposa Aviations! They seem just as good as the more expensive luxardos and we are pretty snobby about our cocktails.
