Crawfish grits. Yelp photo by Tiffany U.
My editorial assistant heard word that the chefs at ~BROKEN RECORD~ were off to do their own thing, which was confirmed by this Craigslist ad I spotted yesterday. But before we could get a call back, the Scoop announced chefs James Moisey and Shane LaValley are in fact leaving Geneva Avenue in a month or so, and will be opening their own place in the Lower Haight, in the former Rotee space. They are hilariously calling the space rickybobby—yes, it’s a reference to Talladega Nights. Look for the same menu (bacon burger, crawfish grits) and 45 seats. A beer and wine license is under way; late fall is the plan. 400 Haight St. at Webster.
