The Dancing Pig is readying to jig its way into the Castro this Winter. Grub Street notes that Nirvana closed last week, and the pending BBQ joint is readying to open in February; expect a full bar with a focus on bourbon.
Yesterday we mentioned, via SFist, that a new restaurant is slated for the current record store, Force of Habit. Today Eater SF provides new details on the pending 20 Spot. Expect an extensive wine program, since owner Bodhi Freedom also owns the wine and sake bar Bacchus, and local ingredients across the food menu. Freedom and his partner Peter Goggin are just waiting on the ever faithfully-slow ABC to get things rolling. Expect an opening in June at the earliest.
Crepe'n Coffee is no more. Eater SF shares the Lower Pacific Heights cafe has papered windows and a disconnect number.
Yet Wah may still be gone for good. The dim sum restaurant shuttered in November, but then the Richmond Blog SF noticed a sign on Monday stating the restaurant is closed for a remodel. However, an update on the site notes that, regardless of the remodel, the restaurant won't reopen until they find a new owner.
