Bacon Bacon restaurant has been temporally displaced out of its brick and mortar location in the Upper Haight over permitting issues, so it is fitting that it found a place to serve its porcine dishes at the Brick and Mortar Music Hall in the Mission.

Bacon Bacon will begin serving lunch at the venue starting on June 12, Inside Scoop reports. Lunch will be served 11-3 p.m. and the menu will be similar to what they offer in their truck.
"It happened that I had a friend who had a venue and I needed a kitchen," says owner Jim Angelus. The restaurant was forced to close earlier this month over permitting issues that were exacerbated by a neighbor who complained. The headlines, which focused on neighbors complaints over the smell of bacon, lead to a mention on Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update."
"It's got to be really tricky to walk up to a cop and complain that something smells like bacon," Amy Poehler quipped.
Angelus points out that the restaurant closed temporarily over permitting issues, not the smell of bacon. He will go before the planning commission in July to get the appropriate permits.
Ironically, Brick and Mortar has been dealing with neighbors' complaints of their own. Complaints over noise forced the owners to soundproof the venue.
"Two negatives make a positive," Angelus says. "Now we can smell bad and make a lot of noise."
