Some news tidbits for you. The lunch crew who used to get their wonton soup at The Silver Star Deli have a new option: bahn mi and spring rolls and vermicelli bowls at NEW SILVER STAR DELI. The new owners are also keeping things affordable: everything is $7.25 and under (here’s the menu). 316 Pacific Ave. at Battery, 415-590-2257.
Downtown workers have probably taken note of the latest and airy MIXT (formerly Mixt Greens) location to open at 240 Kearny Street, the farthest west of the SF locations.
But here’s something you may not know: Mixt is trying out a dinner promotion at their 70 Mission Street location. So for those of you who like to have a big salad for dinner, either at the shop or taking it to go, here’s your opportunity. (Try one of their seasonal salads; I liked the peaches salad with roast pork loin.) You can swing by Monday through Thursday from 4pm-8pm for the later service. Since it’s so close to a lot of transportation, it’s pretty handy. Also, this Mixt location will continue to be open 10:30am-3pm (and is closed from 3-4pm), just so you know.
Remember when we broke the news about the MR. HOLMES BAKEHOUSE kiosk that opened just outside Workshop Cafe in the FiDi? Unfortunately, they hit a permitting snag, so the stand is on pause at the moment. Stand by for a hopeful reopening date soon. 180 Montgomery St. at Bush.
Since Pete Mrabe won’t be opening his Posole project after all, the latest taker for the former Minako space will reportedly become a NAAN N CURRY very soon. Look for additions like tandoori burritos and burgers to the regular menu. [Via Mission Local.] 2154 Mission St. at Sycamore.
