Big Night Restaurant Group has finished their transformation of Cow Marlowe into THE GREENWICH, now offering a “Hamptons-in-the-Marina” style and a lighter menu from chef Jennifer Puccio as well (check it out here). Open for happy hour 4:30pm-6pm and 10pm to close; dinner Wed-Sun 5:30pm-close; brunch coming October 26th: Sat-Sun 11am-3pm. 3154 Fillmore St. at Greenwich.
Now open in North Beach is FAMILY CAFE from Ray Lee (Akiko’s Restaurant), Jessica Furui (former sake director at Ozumo), and chef Tadayuki Furui (most recently of Soba Ichi). Come by for a menu of homestyle classics, like katsu chicken sandwiches, hearty salads, curry rice, and daily specials, plus Mr. Espresso coffee drinks, matcha, baked goods, and more; they hope to secure a beer and wine license so Jessica can serve her sake magic. There’s a cozy atmosphere that is meant to inspire people to linger, come on by. Open Mon-Sat 11am-6pm; coffee and tea at 10am. 362 Columbus Ave. at Vallejo. [Via Chronicle.]
There’s a new curry shop on Geary from the former chef of Ken Ken Ramen called KONOMAMA. Chef Takahiro Hori partnered up with Yoshuke Takahashi (Ramen Underground), who was running a curry shop called Back Room in this location, but it has been given a design refresh. Look for some vibrant and healthy curry plates, which come with side salads and vegetables (even if you’re ordering the BBQ pork rib and croquette plate), with some vegan options too. Open Tue-Fri 11:30am-3pm and 5pm-9pm, Sat 11:30am-9pm, Sun 11:30am-5pm. 4601 Geary Blvd. at 10th Ave. [Via Eater.]
