The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco food scene.
Beloved sandwich shop Ike's Place may be headed to the other side of the Bay Bridge. Grub Street reports, via Berkeleyside, that owner Ike Shehadeh is looking along Berkeley's Bancroft Avenue for a potential space. He's also looking at a partnership with Al Yeganeh of Soup Nazi fame, who recently opened the first Bay Area location of the Original SoupMan in Fisherman's Wharf. Interesting. Our own Jonathan Kauffman wasn't too keen on the soups.
The Planning Department's waiting game is now being played with Woodhouse Fish Co.'s Dylan MacNiven. Aiming to open Mohave in the former Bombay Bazar and Ice Creamery, Eater SF reports he'll have to wait three months before potential approval for his Southwestern restaurant. Tick tock, tick tock.
Temporarily closed since May, Eater SF shares Weird Fish reopens tomorrow. Shuttered since co-owner Timothy Holt left to focus on his Roshambo Farms, Peter Hood is now running the show alone. Yes, a show, of sorts. The small Mission space now includes a DJ booth and projection room as well as new menu items alongside long-time favorites.
