Beginning Sunday October 12th, ~MARLA BAKERY~ will be serving brunch on Sundays from 10:30am-2:30pm. Not only can you enjoy their spiced doughnuts and challah French toast on the beautiful patio (could the weather be any more perfect?), but you can also make reservations right here. Take a look at the menu and start planning your trip to the Richmond now. 3619 Balboa St. at 37th Ave., 415-742-4379.
Michelle Polzine’s ~20TH CENTURY CAFE~ is now open for happy hour Wed-Fri from 6pm-9pm. In addition to a few items from their lunch menu, they’ll be serving snacks like deviled eggs and pickles, along with wines from Hungary, Austria, Croatia, Istria, and Slovenia (starting at the very reasonable $22 a bottle). Yep, we’ll see you there.
Adam Mesnick’s newest foray into the deli scene, ~RYE PROJECT~, is now going to be open on Saturdays, starting this Saturday October 11th. They’re open 11am-3pm, slinging meats on rye and bagel platters to make your weekend fabulous. 180 7th St. at Natoma, 415-552-8984.
It sounds like another late-night dining destination has bit the dust in this early-to-bed town. ~KIN KHAO~ has ended late-night service as of Monday October 6th and will now be closing at 11pm every night. Citing concerns about staffing, public transportation, and long shifts, they’ve had to start closing earlier, despite being busy at night. For more on the challenges of San Francisco’s late-night dining scene, read this story I wrote for 7x7 in 2012. Sigh.
