After some permitting issues and delays, ~RADISH~, the daytime restaurant opening across from the Lexington Club in the Mission, is currently targeting an opening date of Monday April 11th. I’ll have pics for you in my next issue, but in the meantime, I got a sneak peek at owner Emily Summers and chef Adam Horndeck’s menu. Breakfast will feature eggs Benedict, a vegetable omelet, and a croque-madame, along with migas (a scramble of egg, onion, bell pepper, tortilla strips, avocado, and pickled jalapeños), steak and eggs, and a Spanish-style tortilla de patatas. There will also be pancakes, French toast, and donuts.
There are nine different sandwich options for lunch, including a steak sandwich with caramelized onion and beech mushrooms, white cheddar, arugula, pesto, and lemon aioli, served on foccacia; and the Rad Burger, made with grass-fed beef. Vegetarians will be pleased to find half of the items on the sandwich menu can be theirs, from a vegetarian burger to a tofu sandwich. There are also healthy-sounding soups and salads, like curry lentil soup, and a root salad with roasted beets and potatoes, sheep feta, watermelon radishes, and clementine-chervil vinaigrette. Many items will be made in-house (breads, dressing), and they’re even roasting their own coffee; sourcing will be local and organic when possible. Hours will be 8am-10pm daily, and until 11pm on the weekend.
