With the closure of Marbella (previously Rex Cafe) on Polk Street, the new takers have arrived: Ari Derfel, Eric Fenster, and chef Sean Baker of ~GATHER~ in Berkeley. While the project doesn’t have a name yet, Eater has some additional details: Abueg Morris Architects is redesigning the 64-seat space, and as far as the format, chef Baker will continue Gather’s whole animal program, with a simultaneous focus on vegetables (look for some house-cured meats as well). Michael Ireland (previously Meadowood) is consulting on the wine and cocktail program. Look for an opening in the summer. 2323 Polk St. at Green.
