A couple quick opening updates for you! At long last, the seafood market and café from Adrian Hoffman and Ismael Macias of Four Star Seafood, BILLINGSGATE, has opened in Noe Valley. I first saw the news via Traci Des Jardins on Instagram (love her cat eyeballing the bowl of clams!). Not only are they selling a variety of seafood and shellfish for you to prepare at home, but they also have an extensive café menu of prepared dishes, from chocolate clam ceviche (it’s a type of clam, you may have tried it in Mexico) to New England clam chowder to seafood salads (check out their latest posted menu here). They also have caviar, beer, and wine to go. Get ready to pick up some Dungeness crabs! Open Tue-Fri and Sun 10am-7pm, and Sat 9am-7pm. 3859 24th St. at Vicksburg, 415-590-3001.
UNDERDOGS TRES has opened in Nopalito’s former Inner Sunset location, after moving from/closing their original Irving Street location. You can view their takeout and delivery menu of tacos, burritos, soup, breakfast, and more on their site. What’s crazy is Underdogs is down to just one location right now: Underdogs Too in the Parkside suffered a devastating fire on December 15th (thankfully, no one was hurt), but it remains to be seen what the fate of that location is—owner Doug Marschke is currently waiting to hear back from their insurance. In the meantime, they launched a GoFundMe to help their employees. 2020, what a beast. Open 11:30am-9pm daily (until 10pm Fri-Sat). 1224 9th Ave. at Lincoln.
