Exciting news from the ~LOCAL MISSION EATERY~ crew (Jake Des Voignes and Yaron Milgrom): Grub Street broke the story that they are expanding in the neighborhood with Local Mission Market and Local’s Corner. The market will feature handcrafted and local products, and the Local newsletter shares more: “Every pasta, jam, pickle, spread, bread, cracker, hot sauce, spice rub, extract, marinade, cured meat, smoked fish, sausage, and more would be made on-site, in an open kitchen, using the same ingredients—and only the ingredients—available on our shelves. By ingredients, we mean local vegetables, fruit, grains, fish, meat, cheese, beer, wine, and spirits.” Grub Street adds there will be a “cheese counter, butcher, dry goods, and fresh produce, all either made in-house or sourced from Northern California farmers and producers.” Construction is beginning in February in a historic industrial building on Harrison Street (at 22nd St.), just a few blocks from the restaurant. The plan is to open in the summer.
Local’s Corner (2500 Bryant St. at 23rd St.) is two weeks into construction, and the plan is to convert a Mission corner market into a restaurant (pending approvals by the city) with outdoor seating and serving beer and wine. Breakfast will be served, and the evenings will feature a menu dedicated to local, sustainable, head-to-tail fish and seafood, plus several draught beers and wines by the glass. Stay tuned for more details—the current targeted opening is spring.
