A tablehopper reader (thanks again, Luke!) let me know PETE’S bar in North Beach had a “closed for renovation” sign in the window, and the Chronicle has this follow-up story that owner Pete Mrabe is moving his North Beach location of CHUBBY NOODLE in there. And there’s that full liquor license, how perfect. Sounds like he’ll close Chubby in mid-October—the Marina location will remain open. 570 Green St. at Stockton.
According to an ABC transfer, BEYOND BURMA, an evening pop-up in the Elmira space near Civic Center, is moving into the former Borobudur space in the TenderNob. I wrote about this restaurant (and their awesome mohinga) last year, and am happy to see them find a permanent location. The Chron reports they’re going to keep a couple Borobudur dishes on the menu (the owners are retiring—they’ve been holding it down since 1991!). What a sweet thing to do for their regulars since the city is losing one of its few Indonesian restaurants (probably at the end of September). 700 Post St. at Jones.
