After an 18-year-run at their Union Square location, and a two-year pandemic-related closure, ~COLIBRÍ MEXICAN BISTRO~ has reopened in the Presidio Officers’ Club, one of SF’s oldest buildings.

Owner Eduardo Rallo is bringing over 50 percent of his original team, including executive chef Edgar Castro, who will be including some dishes from his birthplace of Mérida, Yucatan, as well as new and popular dishes, like quesabirria. The menu includes pozole verde, chilaquiles verdes o rojos, tlayuda vegetariana, enchiladas, and many antojitos (and handmade tortillas) prepared at the outdoor comal.

Lead bartender Viridiana Gallardo is heading the beverage program, which will have a diverse list of mezcals. The historic interior of the restaurant is something special, and the outdoor patio is going to be perfect for brunch (available Sat-Sun 10:30am-3pm). Open Mon-Fri 11:30am-9pm and Sat-Sun 10:30am-10pm; happy hour Mon- Fri 3pm-6pm. 50 Moraga Ave.
