There’s a new neighborhood restaurant that has opened in the Mission, ~BON, NENE~, in the L’Aviateur space, from Stephanie Chan and Miu Frupa. Eater previously explained the quirky name, “an amalgamation of the French word ‘bon,’ which means ‘good,’ and the Japanese name ‘nene,’ which Furuta named her dog.” The menu is built around smaller tapas-style plates, like stuffed chicken wings, chicken or tofu buns, miso beef lettuce wraps, and seafood or pork gyoza with housemade ponzu sauce. Breakfast includes a morning set menu with two pieces of toast with red bean paste, soy sauce potatoes, salad, and a sunny-side up egg.

It’s a small space, about 35 seats, and it’s all about the neighborhood vibe. Lunch, brunch, and dinner are served. There are also Japanese beers (Sapporo slushies!), wine, and more. Hours are Tue-Fri 11am-2:30pm and 5:30pm-9:30pm, Sat 9am-2:30pm and 5:30pm-9:30pm, Sun 9am-2:30pm. 2850 21st St. at Alabama, 415-872-9332.
