I caught up with Sol Hernandez of the ever-popular Sol Food in San Rafael, who filled me in on some expansion details. They are currently building out another place next to their existing “big space” on Lincoln that is going to be called SOL FOOD LA BODEGA. The bigger kitchen means they’re adding a rotisserie oven for chicken. You’ll be able to walk in and order food to go at a counter (there’s no seating), plus there will be a small retail space, the La Bodega part, where they will sell their hot sauce, salad dressing, and a few other items. The timeline is TBD, probably three months out.
Once this larger kitchen is established, it will act as a commissary of sorts, because they are currently thinking about expanding to another nearby city, like South Marin, Sausalito, Mill Valley, or even San Francisco and opening a small Sol Food for take-out and delivery (I am holding my breath, and crossing my fingers and toes). I’ll keep you posted on all developments… 903 Lincoln Blvd. at 3rd St., San Rafael.
