As we reported last week, yesterday was the last night of the Burger SF Monday pop-up at Cease & Desist from the Causwells fellows (Alvin Garcia and chef Adam Rosenblum), as they ramp up to open their very own brick-and-mortar location in February 2016.

We knew is was going to be near 6th and Market, and Hoodline just revealed the actual address is 998 Market St., in the Warfield building. The new name will be ~POPSONS~, and the menu will be very similar to what you would have experienced as Burger (i.e., an insanely good double cheeseburger, duck fat fries, onion rings).

Also worth noting: next door will be ~WAYSTONE~, a wine bar and lunch spot from Garcia’s partner at Causwells, Tom Patella, and his wife, Allison, due to open in July 2016. You can read more here.

Meanwhile, Wes Rowe has secured a brick-and-mortar location in the Mission for his upcoming ~WES BURGER N’ MORE~ in the former Palacio Latino space. The Austin-born Rowe has been running Wes Burger as a pop-up at Mojo Bicycle Café on Wednesdays, serving many permutations of his delicious all-brisket, coarsely ground patty that he cooks in a cast-iron skillet every week. After consulting on the menu for the Lookout bar in the Castro, owner Chris Hastings has partnered up with Rowe on this next venture, due to open in early 2016. We’ll keep you posted. 2240 Mission St. at 18th St.
