There are some new openings for you to add to your dance card. First up, we previously mentioned there was a taker for the former Samovar space in the Lower Haight, and now REVELRY BISTRO is open. Hoodline took a look at the cozy space, which now features local art. Chef-owner Brad Roth’s menu is succinct and French-inspired, and there’s an extensive wine list. Dinner is being launched first (Wed-Sun 5pm-10pm), with brunch coming next. 297 Page St. at Laguna, 415-241-6833.
Fans of Oakland’s Burmese outpost GROCERY CAFE can now enjoy chef-owner William Lue’s authentic cooking at TENDER LOVING FOOD in the Tenderloin. If you have a moment, you really should read these two stories that delve into his background and the altruistic motivation for opening this latest venture, which involves helping his fellow Burmese immigrants.
There’s a takeout menu with everything for $9 or less, and he’s offering a banquet menu too. The bare-bones space is just getting up and running, but after a few bites of Lue’s ohno khao swe (coconut chicken noodle) and Burmese tea leaf salad, that’s what all your attention will be fixed on. Expect more dishes to be added soon. You can also book a banquet dinner; call 925-566-4877. Open Mon-Thu 8am-11pm and Fri-Sun 11am-11pm. 393 Eddy St. at Leavenworth.
Now open in Presidio Heights is AS QUOTED, a casual but nicely designed space that can handle any dietary restrictions you may have, whether you’re dairy-, gluten-, nut-, or soy-free. The menu includes salads, sandwiches, soups, smoothies, and more. Eater reports the project is from sisters Kara and Andie Yamagami—they have a strong local focus, with coffee from Andytown, meats from Marin Sun Farms, and produce from Full Belly Farm. Beer and wine are coming too. Hours for now are Mon-Fri 7am-7pm, Sat 7am-2pm—Sundays will be coming soon. 3613 Sacramento St. at Locust, 415-914-0689.
Fans of the chicken wings and hot sauces from HOT SAUCE AND PANKO, previously in the Richmond, has relocated and reopened in the U-Lee space in Lower Nob Hill (the building they were in was going to be demolished). You can get wings to go (no table service) and take your pick from their extensive hot sauce collection. They will be adding confit/fried duck legs with a brandied hoisin sauce soon, oh yeah. Open Wed-Sat 11:30am-7pm and Sun 11:30am-5pm. 1468 Hyde St. at Jackson, 415-359-1908.
