Two Sisters Bar and Books (photo from Facebook).
Things have been proceeding for ~TWO SISTERS BAR AND BOOKS~—a Hayes Valley project from sisters Mikha Diaz and Mary Elliott—and it should be holding its soft opening this week. There will be a variety of books, beverages (made with sherry, vermouths, and wines), and bites like wild boar sausage, a Brussels sprout leaf salad, chicken meatballs, and a roasted garlic, fennel, and tomato bread pudding. Here’s a copy of the brunch menu and the evening menu. The cozy space features wallpaper, wainscoting, and pedestal tables. Hours will be Tue-Thu 4pm-11pm, Fri 4pm-12am, Sat 1pm-12am, and Sun 12pm-8pm, with Sun brunch 12pm-4pm. Happy hour is Tue-Fri 4pm-6pm, and Sat 1pm-4pm. Please note it’s cash only. 579 Hayes St. at Laguna, 415-863-3655. UPDATE: The confirmed opening date is now Friday October 14th at 4pm, with happy hour all night long!
