Jason B. tipped me off to ~LUNCH GEEK~ moving a few blocks from their original location to the Cafico space. SFoodie has a few more details about the transition into the new space. 1475 Market St. at 11th St., 415-626-8888.
Take note, XLB (xiao long bao) fans. A reader writes in: “Just had dinner at the ~SHANGHAI DUMPLING KING~. Everything was good but slightly less flavorful so we checked the kitchen and there is a new chef. Also all the other staff is new. We asked our waitress and she said that there had been a change in ownership as the ‘king’ wanted a bigger place and to be closer to his parents.” Looks like there is some discussion on Chowhound about it as well. 3319 Balboa St. at 34th Ave., 415-387-2088.
~RINCONCITO NICARAGUENSES~ has recently taken over the Chavita’s spot in the Mission. Another thanks to Jason B. for the tip-off about the opening. 3161 24th St. at S. Van Ness, 415-206-9411.
