Tipster Jason B. writes in: “Went to TANGERINE for dinner tonight and they had a sign up they are moving at the end of August to a new location a few blocks away.” Still waiting to hear back from the chef-owner on where exactly that is; stand by for news on where the big brunch migration will be happening. 3499 16th St. at Sanchez, 415-626-1700.
Grub Street was first to break the news that CHIPOTLE MEXICAN GRILL is moving into the former Home location on Market Street (in the area I like to call “Upper Safeway”). Beer and margaritas are mentioned; the opening is looking like 2013. 2100 Market St. at Church.
Grub Street also mentions the upcoming opening of K-POP RESTAURANT, from sister restaurants Osaka Sushi and Barracuda. (I wonder if the music will be louder than what they play at that crazy So Good jewelry shop on Haight.) 499 Castro St. at 18th St.
