A Couple Hermit Crab Restaurant Moves

A tablehopper reader (thanks again, Luke!) let me know ~PETE’S~ bar in North Beach had a “closed for renovation” sign in the window, and the Chronicle has this follow-up story that owner Pete Mrabe is moving his North Beach location of ~CHUBBY NOODLE~ in there. And there’s that full liquor license, how perfect. Sounds like he’ll close Chubby in mid-October—the Marina location will remain open. 570 Green St. at Stockton.

According to an ABC transfer, ~BEYOND BURMA~, an evening pop-up in the Elmira space near Civic Center, is moving into the former Borobudur space in the TenderNob. I wrote about this restaurant (and their awesome mohinga) last year, and am happy to see them find a permanent location. The Chron reports they’re going to keep a couple Borobudur dishes on the menu (the owners are retiring—they’ve been holding it down since 1991!). What a sweet thing to do for their regulars since the city is losing one of its few Indonesian restaurants (probably at the end of September). 700 Post St. at Jones.
