Three New (Smaller) Projects Around Town


Ciscle-era wings (and a waffle) at Little Skillet.

According to SFoodie, Christian Ciscle, formerly the badass chef and opening manager of Little Skillet, is going to be opening a place called ~WING WINGS~ in the former Roland’s Bagels space. Although these wings won’t be fried—instead, they’ll be the saucy kind. And here’s more: “Also lots of specials, sides, fresh-cut fries, and desserts―no frills, he tells us. It’ll be mostly carry-out, with only limited seating, and late-night hours.” Looks like it’s about two months out. Fun fact: Ciscle was also behind Big Sherm’s Fresh Sandwiches, which was in the neighborhood more than 10 years ago. Oh, the memories. 422 Haight St. at Webster.

More Little Skillet-related news: Grub Street reports that Jay Foster (Farmerbrown and Little Skillet) is going to be opening ~THE LIBRARY~ with business partner Deanna Sison. No actual details about what it will be have been released (a bar? a café?) but stand by. The location: the former Someplace Else. 1795 Geary St. at Fillmore.

Lastly, Inside Scoop reports that opening up on Fillmore Street will be ~JANE~, just next door to Citizen Cake. Owner Amanda Michael will reportedly be offering a coffee program featuring Four Barrel coffee, and breakfast and lunch items, including “housemade baked goods in the morning, and then quick service soup/salads/sandwiches for lunch. The afternoon will see more small-batch treats, like cookies and such.” Considering Citizen Cake is just next door, this should be, uh, interesting. Hours will be 6am-6pm; look for an opening perhaps in February. 2123 Fillmore St. at California.
