As previously reported on tablehopper, the former Red Vic space in the Haight is getting a new life as ~SECOND ACT MARKETPLACE~. To recap, the new space will serve as a home for five new businesses, and the hope is to serve as an incubator for businesses that will step out on their own as they grow. Confirmed tenants so far are Anda Piroshki, which serves Russian home-style cooking; High Cotton Kitchen, a New Orleans-style lunch spot; the juice bar RAW; and Spice Hound, the excellent spice shop already in Bernal.
You’ll also find Community Craft, a bakeshop (with gluten-free options) selling items from bakers including Bread SRSLY from Sadie Scheffer, Ebbs Bakery from Robert Hac, Eat Me NatuRaw from Tanya Fislar, Park Bench (a San Franciscan boulangerie) from Brandywine White, Sweets Simply by Nicole, and Meetinghouse Biscuits from Joanna Karlinsky, plus Sightglass Coffee.
Right now, the hope is to open in November. The space will also host an amphitheater and community space in the back, which will seat 49 for screenings, music, and events. The Alembic will also expand into part of the former Red Vic space, doubling their seating capacity. This is all great news; we will update as we get more information on an opening date. 1727 Haight St. at Cole.
