We've noticed some comings and goings along a stretch of Judah in the Sunset. A sign for Maomao's Kitchen has gone up over the papered windows at 2555 Judah (at 31st Ave.). A posted liquor license application has a September date, and a peek through the newspaper reveals not a whole lot of action, but we're going to guess this will be the future home of some sort of Chinese cafe?
Up the street, 2-year-old Shabu Lounge (2407 Judah, at 29th Ave.) appears to be shuttered, with posted signs listing You and Me Cafe as the new occupants. The stretch could really use a thoughtful cafe selling something other than dishes made with the kind of ingredients Sysco (or the Asian equivalent) drops off, so we're hopeful You and Me can come up with a good concept.
