Erin Archuleta, tablehopper hardhat writer, shares this update with us: In mid-to-late August, the Bayview neighborhood will be throwing open its doors to the Carroll Station condo community at 5800 Third Street (off of the T-Line and Third Street). It will be welcoming in breakfast and lunch diners to the newest project from Tanya Holland—of Food Network and Cooking Channel fame—which will be a follow-up to her Oakland soul food favorite, Brown Sugar Kitchen.
The project also welcomes the Mission District’s Peruvian outpost, Limón, adding an additional Limón Rotisserie to complement their Valencia Street flagship restaurant and South Van Ness rotisserie locations with their now-famous chicken. (They plan to open at the same time as Brown Sugar Kitchen. ) And, fresh & easy will be a welcome newcomer for Bayview residents, who have long been without a proper grocery store. This will be one of two fresh & easy locations in the southern part of San Francisco, targeting newly developed areas in Silver Terrace/Visitacion Valley and Bayview.
Out in what locals affectionately refer to as “The Second Alphabet” section of Bayview, this triumvirate of businesses and the over-500 residential condos represent a huge burst of neighbors for the area. This tablehopper writer has been working in the ‘hood for a few years now, and knows our neighbors will be stoked to have lunch options in addition to the long-time stakeholders at B&J 1/4 Lb. Burgers and the random church guy with the BBQ drum at the laundromat. Check back with the hardhat for an inside peek at the construction to come over the summer.
