The print version of the Inside Scoop reports that Sens exec chef Dane Bortya and his wife, Liz Ferro, are taking over the former Washington Square Bar and Grill. The couple is naming their restaurant Bottle Cap (1707 Powell). The pitch: casual American.
Eater SF talked to Bourbon and Branch's Brian Sheehy and Doug Dalton, who will be taking over Club 441 (441 Jones, at O'Farrell) next week. They're going to keep it open as a "dive with good cocktails" until they figure out what to do with the space. Does this qualify as a pop-up? Will they have a secret trapdoor that takes you into BandB? Will SFoodie feel more comfortable going to the bathroom at 441 now that we can drink classier whiskeys there?
If you didn't catch SFoodie's post, we reported that Sneaky's BBQ is revving up the smoker on Monday at Rebel (1760 Market). Please remember your manners, gentlemen, and don't grease up the stripper pole with your sauce-covered paws.
