A few mini-Mission items: according to Uptown Almanac, it looks like there is finally some activity in the long-closed ~LA RONDALLA~: the space is currently gutted, and according to workers on site, the owners hope to open before Christmas. There are no changes on the liquor license, so it looks like the Barrios family continue to own it. 901 Valencia St. at 20th St.
Just down the street, the ~THE BLUE FIG~ cafe is now open, serving items ranging from “blue waffles” to croque-madames to Reubens. 990 Valencia St. at 21st St.
And this Wednesday, the ~PAL’S TAKEAWAY~ guest chef series continues with Ryan Ostler, formerly from Bruno’s and Broken Record, busting out a Marin Sun Farms pulled lamb goodie on his housemade pita bread with apple-jicama slaw and harissa. Hubba. 2751 24th St. at Hampshire.
