Last week, I ran a preview of the about-to-open THE SALZBURG in North Beach, and co-owner Jay Esopenko has confirmed it’s opening this Wednesday October 4th. Here’s a look at the menu, which is going to get you thirsty and hungry. Hours will be Tue-Wed 4pm-10:30pm, Thu-Sat 4pm-12am, and Sun 4pm-10pm. 663 Union St. at Columbus.
There’s a new contemporary Korean spot from the folks behind the Kokio Republic fried chicken food truck called BARNZU in the TenderNob. It’s soft open right now, with a variety of dishes like jeon (savory pancake), sweet potato noodles with mushrooms, kimchi fried rice, stonepot, and three different kinds of fried items, including their trademark KFC. Beer, wine, sake, and soju round out the menu. Open Sun and Tue-Thu 5:30pm-11pm, Fri-Sat 5:30pm-12am. 711 Geary St. at Leavenworth, 415-525-4985.
