More eats coming to the Dogpatch (and drinks, too). Opening in the American Industrial Center at the end of January will be GILBERTH’S ROTISSERIE & GRILL, from Gilberth Cab and Julia Rivera of The New Spot (one of my very favorite places for pupusas) and Oralia’s. The Latin-fusion menu will feature dishes with Cuban, Puerto Rican, and Central American influences, like roasted pork neck with plantain mofongo, and Cuban baby back ribs with a guava glaze, fried plantains, and gallo pinto. And, of course, chicken off the rotisserie. There wil be 45 seats, and it will be open daily 11am-3pm and 5pm-10:30pm. 2427-2429 3rd St. at 20th St.
Meanwhile, the Sea Star Club is now THE GOAT. Bartender-owner Christopher Webster has been bartending at the Double Play and Dogpatch Saloon the past six years, so he’s no stranger to the neighborhood. He said it’s just meant to be a neighborhood bar “with stuff and style.” The stuff includes a pool table, an impending jukebox, and there are 12 beers on tap, primarily microbrews from the West Coast. Open daily 12pm-2am. 2289 3rd St. at 19th St., 415-252-7988.
