Mmmmm, curry. Yelp photo by Miso S.
Sure, pizza is hot, but I’d say izakayas are quickly on pizza’s heels. Grub Street first noted ~IZAKAYA JU-KU~ was moving into the former Ristorante Tiziano space in the Outer Richmond. And now, look at that, it’s open. Initial reports on Yelp mention donburi for lunch and izakaya dishes for dinner; “excellent” kushi katsu, made-to-order tamago omelette, Japanese beers on tap, a fresh-squeezed grapefruit-shochu drink, and it seems the seats to score are the private booths for two. According to Yelp, it’s open for lunch Tue-Fri 11:30am-2pm, dinner Tue-Thu and Sun 5pm-10pm, Fri-Sat 5pm-11pm. 1801 Clement St. at 19th Ave.
