Looks like 2298 Fillmore Street (most recently Long Bar) is going to reopen, according to some liquor license activity. Owners Albert and Klaus Rainer (of Leopold’s in Russian Hill and the former Cafe Metropol downtown) are going to be opening a tavern, according to Inside Scoop—and how handy, they can transfer their Cafe Metropol liquor license over. A few more details: red leather booths, a lively vibe, and unfussy cuisine. Look for a name and more soon. 2298 Fillmore St. at Clay.
