After the closure of Almanac Tap Room in the Mission, local brewer (and distiller) ~SEVEN STILLS~ has moved into the space and is now open as a taproom.

You can check out the tap list, and there’s a rather extensive and affordable menu of snacks that includes Padrón peppers, deviled eggs, roasted garlic hummus, a BLT, fried chicken sandwich, and, of course, a cheeseburger.

Brunch includes loco moco, a masa waffle, and special brunch drinks/low-ABV cocktail options. The space got a bit of a refresh, with a new mural, and don’t forget there’s that awesome back patio. Hours: Mon-Wed 5pm-10pm, Thu 12pm-10pm, Fri 12pm-11pm, Sat 11am-11pm, Sun 11am-9pm. 2704 24th St. at Potrero, 415-658-7661.

North Beach residents were dismayed with the closure of Tamarind Hall, their sole Thai restaurant, but a new Thai place has opened, ~NEW THAI ELEPHANT~, with a menu of Thai standards, from apps to rice plates to noodle soups and dishes. This is their second location, their first is in San Mateo. Open daily 11am-9:30pm. 393 Bay St. at Mason, 415-818-8999.

Downtown’s ~HOMAGE~ has opened a second location in the FiDi, offering breakfast, coffee service, lunch, and twilight/happy hour service. There’s housemade bread, seasonal soups and salads, and well-chosen wines and vermouths. Check the site for menus. Open Mon-Fri 7am-9pm. 214 California St. at Front, 415-658-7732. ​
