Table of Contents

ORIGAMI MARKET is opening in SoMa on Wednesday August 19th. The healthy fast-casual spot comes from Kash Feng of Live Sushi and the newly opened Omakase and serves lunch and dinner in-house or for takeout. The menu offers Asian-influenced salads, bowls, and rolls, with lots of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free choices to satisfy everyone. Ingredients will be sustainable and well sourced, like Mary’s Chickens and Meyer Ranch for the antibiotic-free beef, and everything is less than $16. Hours are Mon-Sat 11am-9pm. 669 Townsend St. at 8th St., 415-865-9788.

Clement Street has a new Chinese restaurant, with fare from the region of Wuxi, according to those ever-knowledgable Chowhounds. It’s called TASTE OF JIANGNAN (and has nothing to do with Crystal Jade) and is currently softly open. They aren’t offering their full menu quite yet, which means no noodles, but there are still initial positive reports. The wontons are reportedly a highlight, as are the braised “big bones” that are no joke for the carnivorously inclined. 332 Clement St. at 5th Ave., no phone.
