Consider this a rapid-fire news update, just so you can go check things out in case you are a fan of soft openings or just want something to look forward to. I’ll have more details in the next tablehopper!
Due to soft open on Thursday May 31st is DOUGLAS, the new all-day café and corner market in Noe Valley from Maggie Spicer (Baana), Michael Molesky (Marker), and his father, Jim, who reportedly has quite the palate and cooking skills. Stand by to see what they start with, but breakfast, lunch, coffee (from Portland’s Heart Coffee Roasters) and tea, snacks, and stocked pantry shelves are all part of the plan (read more here). Here’s their Insta for updates. 1598 Sanchez St. at 29th St.
I was chatting with Nichole Accettola about the opening of her upcoming Scandinavian café, KANTINE, and she’s targeting mid-June! Can’t wait for porridge and her smørrebrød (open-faced Danish sandwiches) on her housemade sprouted rye bread. I’ll keep you updated. (Pssst, she’s hiring!) 1906 Market St. at Octavia.
