Exterior of new Pica Pica Castro location.
Adriana López Vermut, owner of ~PICA PICA MAIZE KITCHEN~ will be opening a third location (the second in San Francisco) in the Castro in early September, as initially reported in the Scoop. The restaurant will be 1,500 square feet on two levels, with seating for 40. Local firm Arcsine Architecture of Oakland (which designed the Mission Pica Pica location) is designing the space; look for similar elements and materials. The downstairs will feature an open kitchen and counters for pub-style dining; upstairs there will be seating and tables for two-tops and four-tops. The location will be right across from the SF MUNI F-line tram turnaround. Hours will be 10am-10pm daily. Look for an opening around September 10th. 3970 17th St. at Market.
