The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the
San Francisco restaurant scene.
Inside Scoop's Paolo L.
has an opening date for Twenty Five Lusk
(which is the address): Oct. 16. The lineup: Matthew Dolan, chef; Chad Bourdon, GM; Cass Calder Smith, architect; Cesar Kusik, wine director. The pitch: It's not clear from the report what the cuisine will be, but there is a 120-seat dining room upstairs and a massive lounge downstairs. SFoodie already knows that we are going to be forcing a hyphen between "Twenty" and "Five," whether the restaurant wants it or not.
also reports that Flora
has replaced chef Chris Dettmar with Rico Rivera, a Pizzaiolo veteran, and gone all casual again.
