We broke the news back in April that Jeff Gambardella and Douglas Mathieux of Rigolo Café were opening ~ARTESANO~ in Laurel Heights. We just got word from the team last night that this casual South American concept—offering Latin American comfort food from countries ranging from Brazil to Peru to Argentina—is opening this Friday July 12th. You can peek at the menu here, featuring dishes at a wallet-friendly price point, like ceviche, salads, sandwiches, some larger plates like braised or oven-roasted chicken, and more. They’ll be open for both lunch and dinner: Sun-Thu 10:30am-9pm, Fri-Sat 10:30am-10pm. 3415 California St. at Laurel, 415-221-5500.

The fine folks of ~CITIZEN’S BAND~ are giving you another opportunity to indulge in their insanely good burger since they are now open for service and dinner service on Mondays. Lunch hours are 11:30am-2pm and dinner 5:30pm-9pm (dinner will have a slightly shortened dinner menu, à la Sunday nights).
