From Porn to Produce at the Armory, Tajine Rises Yet Again
The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco food scene.
Grub Street reveals that a new farmers' market might come with a side of dominatrix, after The Examiner reported that porn company Kink.com is looking to turn the old Armory at Mission and 14th streets into a community space by the end of the year.
Third Fourth time's the charm: Inside Scoop reports that Tajine (1653 Polk at Pine) has returned to Polk Gulch. After a stint on Jones, then Polk, and a quick open-and-shut on Van Ness, chef-owner Mohammed Ghaleb is betting his Moroccan restaurant will survive in the former Indian Aroma space, starting in the next week or so.
Eater hypothesizes that the attack on the owner of Passion Cafe in SOMA earlier this month might have something to do with the sign advertising the space as available. Also from Eater, a link to a Yelp post about brand-new Ramen Doraku (1042 Taraval at 21st Ave.) in the Sunset. Prices hover around $8.
