Looks like the reopening of ~THE ELITE CAFE~ is getting close. According to a post on Facebook, they are aiming to open the week of September 19th.

Based on their Instagram feed, oysters and fried chicken will be on the menu, plus red beans and rice with house-pickled pork and grilled andouille, as well as other Cajun and Creole favorites.

We’ll keep you posted. (To recap, Andrew Chun of Schroeder’s took over the 35-year-old restaurant space earlier this year.) 2049 Fillmore St. at California, 415-346-8400.

Good news: chef Michael Gaines (Kin Khao, Central Kitchen, Manresa) has found a location for his taco and margarita place, ~GLENA’S~ that he’s opening with his wife, Stephanie Gaines. It will be taking over the former The New Spot space in the Dogpatch and is aiming for early 2017. It will be open daily 11am-11pm. 632 20th St. at 3rd St.
