A couple of quick notes: Aaron Toensing and Erik Lowe of ~SPAGHETTI BROS.~ have changed the name to ~MAYBECK’S~. Seems the impression of the original name was too casual for what they’re doing, and there’s more than spaghetti on the menu. The Inside Scoop notes the name is in honor of Bernard Maybeck, who was the architect who designed the Palace of Fine Arts. 3213 Scott St. at Lombard, 415-400-8500.
I have been hearing some rumblings about issues at Mission brunch hot spot ~RADISH~, and according to a tablehopper reader, it looks like they have closed. “You may have already heard, but Radish closed about 10-12 days ago. They papered up the windows over the weekend making it somewhat official. The word in the neighborhood is that the landlord is going to try to sell the commercial unit (where Radish was). There have been lots of brunchers walking near Radish all weekend looking very confused in search of bottomless mimosas nearby.” The property owner, Dattani and Co., is no stranger to Ellis Act evictions, which happened at Radish’s building before. 3465 19th St. at Lexington.
Was sorry to hear chef Justin Simoneaux has left ~BOXING ROOM~ and returned to his native New Orleans. Eater reports that his longtime sous chef Athman El-Kindiy (formerly Bar Crudo) is taking the reins.
