Grub Now (Softly) Open on Valencia

Table of Contents

At the now-really-truly-finally-and-softly-open GRUB on Valencia, you can have it your way, and have sit-down table service, too. As previously mentioned on tablehopper, the menu will have a create-your-own burger option, with choices like Prather Ranch beef ($11), Colorado buffalo ($12), and ahi tuna ($12), plus a build-your-own mac ‘n’ cheese bar ($9, with $1 per ingredient, like broccoli, pancetta, or steak). The seasonally-changing menu will top out at $18 for a grilled lamb porterhouse, and the 35-bottle wine list will stay under $50, with $7-$12 glasses. Oh, there’s bottomless Pepsi fountain drinks or Roast’s custom drip coffee for $2.50. (You can look at a PDF of the menu here, and wine and beer list here.)

Nightowls take note, the hours are 6pm-1am daily with the kitchen open ‘til 12:30am. For the day birds, weekend brunch will run 10am-2:30pm Sat-Sun with bottomless mimosas for $10—look for brunch to launch in a month or so. Owner Erik Reese is also working on getting a permit for outdoor seating, which would add 10-12 outdoor seats to the already 49 seats inside. Speaking of, inside you’ll find a counter overlooking the kitchen, modern chairs, and plenty of color in the tabletops and the padded red walls (which are just a design element—and not an invitation to go crazy or act like the place is a gymnasium). 758 Valencia St. at 19th St., 415-431-4782.
