Yup. Healthy tacos. And a wine bar. Photo courtesy of Sean Timberlake.
Some updates for you on a few projects around town. First, Ryan Scott is taking over the little Potrero Hill lot at De Haro Street, where one of his ~MARKET & RYE~ locations is—ends up he’s opening a project in the former Kitchen Mojo/Pizza Nostra next door as well. The unnamed project will offer affordable dinner service, and he’ll be taking advantage of the pizza oven as well. Luis Villavelazquez (Les Elements) will contribute to the bread and pastry side of things. Beer and wine will also be available; look for an opening this summer. (H/t Scoop.) 338 De Haro St. at 16th St.
Some things just make me laugh. Like this: fab reader Sean Timberlake sent me this image (at right) of what’s going into the former ~QUE TAL~ on Guerrero. Yup, healthy tacos and a wine bar! ‘Cause that’s the kind of balance I like in my life. Sounds like landowner Luisa Hanson may have a hand in this “concept.” 1005 Guerrero St. at 22nd St.
Details have emerged on what the Twenty Five Lusk duo (Chad Bourdon and Matthew Dolan) are going to be opening in the Westfield Centre near M.Y. China and other “Under the Dome” tenants. It’s going to be called ~TAP(415)~ (because it’s like the internet, and every clever restaurant name has been taken, really?), a 140-seat “modern beer garden” designed by Cass Calder Smith. Plan on seeing a menu of burgers, sandwiches, freshly baked breads, ice cream made on-site, freshly pressed juices, adult milk shakes, and beer, wine, and cocktails on tap. And since we’re now San Frantechcisco, you’ll be able to order and pay from your iPhone. Look for an opening in November. (H/t Scoop.)
A couple of readers excitedly asked me if Tartine Bakery was opening an offshoot in the former E’Angelo in the Marina, but it was just a Designer Impostor (“If you like Giorgio, you’ll love Primo!”) with the name “La Tartine.” I have been tracking down a very elusive representative from the La Tartine Group since February, but she went dark on me. She popped back up to speak with Eater, and it looks like they got smart and changed their company name to ~LA PANOTIQ~. The Guterman family are opening a location in Campbell and will be coming to the Marina next (targeting June). The plan: have an on-site bakery, making breads and viennoiserie and a variety of pâtisserie items; offer lunchtime quiches, panini, salads, and soups; and have some dinnertime options as well (you’ll also be able to get wine and beer with your dinner at the Marina location). The plan is to aggressively expand to multiple locations around the Bay Area, à la La Boulange, it sounds. 2234 Chestnut St. at Avila.
