Curry Up Now Gets Grounded, Coffee Bar Gets Ready to Pull Downtown

The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco food scene.

Everybody always asserts that food trucks are a threshold endeavor toward brick-and-mortar, and it's finally coming true. Tablehopper catches a whiff of Curry Up Now, the restaurant, opening this weekend, perhaps, at 129 South B St. (at First St.) in San Mateo. The pitch, to quote Tablehopper: “tikka masala burritos, a kathi roll, and deconstructed samosas and aloo tikki, with some additions, like sandwiches, their spin on a quesadilla, and their 'un-burger' made with lamb.”

Tablehopper also gets word that Coffee Bar is expanding to downtown to 101 Montgomery (at Sutter) in approximately three months. Same Coffee Bar you've logged countless laptop hours in, only with what Tablehopper asserts is “San Francisco's first Strada espresso machine from La Marzocco.” Well.

And as multiple banh mi watchers report, the pâté is once again being laid on thick in the Tenderloin. Wrap it up in paper and bind it with a rubber band, it's another edition of Buzz Machine.
