A weekend tweet (somewhat incorrectly) released the name of Charles Phan’s new restaurant in his original Valencia Street space: ~WO HING GENERAL STORE~. The Feast did a little more research with Phan and found out “while this new restaurant (named after a nickname for his late father) will feature Chinese cooking, it will not be similar to what’s offered at his Heaven’s Dog restaurant. There will be a full cocktail program, and Phan says he would like to also develop a substantial list of original non-alcoholic beverages. He hopes to open in September, pending city approvals. A San Francisco Planning Department hearing for an approved Conditional Use Permit in the space is scheduled for July 14.” As I mentioned in a previous column, Phan has Michelle Mah working with him, so we’ll have to stand by for any formal announcements. 584 Valencia St. at 17th St.
