I was catching up with bartendress-about-town Victoria D’Amato-Moran (Cent’Anni Cocktails), who let me know about some of the unique offerings that will be found at ~REGION~, the new place opening in the former Mexico DF from Kiet Truong of the pan-Asian Unicorn on Pine Street. Yeah, she got my attention with the Beijing imperial duck from a farm in Petaluma, carved tableside, and served on bone china. Unfortunately I couldn’t secure a menu in time for today’s post. The chef is Steven Lam, previously at Fortune Wok, and you will find a number of D’Amato-Moran’s tasty creations on the cocktail menu.

Take a look at more images of the remodel in Grub Street’s slide show here. Hours are Mon-Fri 11am-2:30pm for lunch, happy hour from 4pm-7pm, and dinner 5pm-10pm; Sat 11:30am-3pm and 5pm-10pm; Sun 5pm-10pm. 139 Steuart St. at Mission, 415-896-1398.
