We’ve been waiting for final details on the one for a while, and can now confirm: Trish Tracey of Ramblas and Thirsty Bear will be opening her restaurant, ~MYRIAD GASTROPUB~, in the recently closed Nombe in the Mission. They’ve begun the process of securing permits, the liquor license, and staffing, and hope to open this summer. 2491 Mission St. at 21st St.
Hoodline reports that Haight Street is getting a new option for vegan eaters, in the form of ~VEGANBURG~. The Singapore-based chain is moving into the long-vacant former All You Knead space, and this marks its first venture in the United States. Their menu lists a variety of burgers, all completely vegan, with lots of different toppings and patty options, plus vegan desserts and sides. 1466 Haight St. at Ashbury.
The Kimpton Group has a new restaurant moving into the former Grand Cafe space in the Hotel Monaco in March, called ~BDK RESTAURANT & BAR~. It will be an American-style tavern, with approachable food and drinks, and focused on hospitality (it’s named after Kimpton’s founder, Bill Drennon Kimpton). 501 Geary St. at Taylor, 415-292-0101.
