And…it’s back. Woof! Lauren Kiino of SoMa’s RED DOG has reopened the restaurant after a temporary closure. The ownership team is now partnering with the group behind Oola and Local Kitchen & Wine Merchant—things will remain the same at Red Dog, though now they’ll have more sales and marketing support. And the city’s best egg salad sandwich is back in our lives, praise the lard. Open Mon-Fri 11:30am-10pm, Sat 10am-10pm, Sun 10am-3pm. 303 2nd St. at Folsom, 415-692-0211.
LEO’S OYSTER BAR just launched lunch service Mon-Fri, offering selections from the raw bar, seafood, small plates, soups and salads (bring on the Louie!), sandwiches, large plates, and Champagne and cocktails if you feel like having that kind of lunch. Mon-Fri 11am-2:30pm. 568 Sacramento St. at Montgomery, 415-872-9982.
According to ABC license transfer activiity, the folks behind Andalé (you know, the place you get a breakfast burrito before hopping on a plane at SFO) look like they are taking over the former Reverb/Verbena space on Polk. We’ll let you know when we hear back with info about their plans. 2323 Polk St. at Green.
A friend let us know that things were kaput with KIT FOX at The Hall, and Deborah Blum’s upcoming mega CITIZEN FOX project that was coming to Mission Street. So, no beer and brewpub from Rich Higgins, no vegan menu, no bar, no coffee, and no vegan Frozen Kuhsterd either. Reasons? We reported that chef Kevin Schuder had departed, and Eater reports construction has been a bear. (No news there.) 2205 Mission St. at 18th St.
