The Marina will soon be able to get their lamb salad and frozen Greek yogurt on with the upcoming opening of the fourth location of ~SOUVLA~ in the former David’s Tea space on Chestnut Street. They are targeting mid-2018 for the opening, and it will mimic the Hayes Valley size and layout, with some outdoor seating. The full Souvla menu will be available from 11am-10pm, seven days a week. 2272 Chestnut St. at Scott.
Last month, I reported on the closure of FRJTZ in the Mission, and now I received word that it’s going to be opening in the short-lived Bayou space around the corner (the New Orleans-inspired restaurant just closed). Frjtz expects to be open at the end of February. It’s a tiny spot, with just seven tables, but the bigger kitchen will help with their delivery and catering business. There will be a new look, more inspired by Viennese cafés, with red wallpaper and a chandelier. 3412 17th St. at Valencia.
