As previously mentioned in tablehopper, TAMASHISOUL SUSHI BAR has now opened in the former Bistro Unique space in Cow Hollow, and per the rumors I heard, the folks behind Sudachi are behind this new project. Urban Daddy mentions red banquettes, DJs, and some wacky maki (like Red Hot Chili Pepper rolls with spicy tuna and jalapeños) on the menu. ‘Nuff said. 1849 Union St. at Octavia, 415-346-1849.
Looks like FERRY PLAZA SEAFOOD is going to be leaving the Ferry Building Marketplace at the end of the year, and plans to reopen in the former Pasta Pomodoro in North Beach near Washington Square Park. Scoop also mentions some bonuses that will come with the new location, like a full kitchen and later hours. Also noted is the rumor that Hog Island Oyster Bar may be taking over the vacant Ferry Building space (lord knows they could use the space). Stand by. 655 Union St. at Columbus.
Coming very soon to the Design District is BLUEPRINT TAP ROOM. Eater mentions Chris Wong—the executive chef at Social Kitchen & Brewery and previously chef-partner of Luella—is behind the project. Local workers will be able to come in for American comfort dishes for lunch (check out the menu here), plus there will be happy hour and early dinners. There will be 20 beers on tap, and Blue Bottle Coffee will also be available. Hours are looking like Mon-Fri 11am-8pm; stand by for news about the opening soon. 680 8th St. at Townsend.
