There’s a second location of ~THE BIRD~ now open in Hayes Valley (in the former Dobbs Ferry space), its second SF location. On the menu: their free-range, fried chicken sandwiches, biscuits, and wings, along with salads, curly fries, and apple fritters. You can also drink canned beer, cider, seltzer, and wine, along with a list of highball cocktails and draft beer, both new additions specific to this location. There are a few outdoor tables and indoor seats; a larger outdoor Shared Space is coming soon. Also in the works: a sports bar and lounge coming to the other connected side of the space. Open daily 10:30am-8:30pm. 406 Hayes St. at Gough.

Bay Area coffee roaster, ~RED BAY COFFEE~, is opening a flagship café in the Ferry Building Marketplace this April, just next to Book Passage. “Founded in 2014 by artist and food entrepreneur, Keba Konte, Red Bay Coffee is at the forefront of the ‘fourth wave’ of coffee, with a commitment to ensuring production is not only high quality and sustainable, but a vehicle for diversity, inclusion, social and economic restoration, entrepreneurship, and environmental sustainability.” Beautiful coffee to the people! They’ll offer fresh-roasted coffee beans, specialty drinks (like a Vietnamese Cold Brew), and fresh pastries.
