Tenderloin Nightclub Morphing Into 222, a Trendy Thin-Crust Eatery
Shuttered Tenderloin club 222 Hyde (SF Weekly Clubs Editor John Graham has described it as a "slumming-hipster nightclub") is apparently being reborn as 222, a thin-crust pizza place. A two-page Web site is up online. It includes a short menu of small plates, antipasti, pizzas, and braised specials: salumi, pizza margherita, ragu over fresh egg pasta. No details yet on the new owners or a target opening date, though by the look of things it'll be soon. We're wondering: Is the heart of the 'Loin ready for an eatery angling for trendy?
