After a tip-off from a tablehopper reader, I learned that Duncan Ley and Ben Bleiman (Tonic, Bullitt, and the upcoming Rebel) are taking over BISSAP BAOBAB, and will be opening a version of Bullitt for the Mission, namely, affordable comfort food and cocktails. A third partner, Mark DeVito, will also be involved in the currently unnamed project. A source close to the owners said they will be taking the space over when the liquor license transfers, which could be anywhere from 90 to 120 days. They will be revamping the space quickly, maybe closing for a couple weeks max, and will be paying a lot of attention to sprucing up the outdoor patio as well. More details in coming weeks. 2323 Mission St. at 19th St.
