Construction Delays Pushing Bracina's Opening Back ... Way Back

It looks like the opening of Bracina, Daniel Patterson and Lauren Kiino's restaurant in Jack London Square, is still months, possibly seasons, away from opening. As you may remember, the restaurant was first announced in the Chron in October 2008, part of the Jack London Market development, which aspires to be Oakland's version of the Ferry Building Marketplace. (I first wrote about the market in November 2004.)

SFoodie contacted Patterson's press rep, Michele Mandell, for a quick update, and was told that construction delays on the part of developer Ellis Partners have kept the restaurant's team from starting on the site build-out. "All we can tell you is that Bracina will open this year, but we

don't have a firm opening date to provide yet," Mandell wrote. Kiino's still on board to be exec chef, Scott Beattie (whom SFoodie talked to this week) will be running the bar, and Coi's Bill Corbett will be the head pastry chef.

Bracina is still scheduled to be the first restaurant to open in the

Jack London Market, so other restaurant projects appear to be on hold, too.

SFoodie has a call out to Ellis Partners to get some clarification on the scope of the delays.

We'll keep you posted.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
