By Dana Eastland. This is some pretty cool news! Los Angeles-based food personality and forager Erik Sun has filed permits for two restaurants in San Francisco. Hoodline caught the news and mentions that there are two separate projects under way: ARSENAL and THE HUNTED. Based on some social media stalking, it looks like Arsenal will be all about fresh-caught seafood and noodles, while The Hunted will focus on wild game.
Sun is an interesting personality: he writes a blog, The Pursuit of Food and is a hunter, sport fisher, and forager, as well as a partner and sometime chef at Bestia in Los Angeles. He told Hoodline that the first of the restaurants would open in early 2016 and the other next fall, though a Facebook post hints that Arsenal could be open as soon as February. We’ll update as we hear more! Arsenal: 715 Brannan St. at Harriet. The Hunted: 445 Harriet St. at Brannan.
