Grub Pisses Off Its Mission Neighbors

They are now circulating a petition (available to read online) to the Department of Public Health demanding that the agency enforce the San Francisco Noise Ordinance and their other, associated complaints. "Grub's machinery is literally eroding our homes and health," the petition states. "We are suffering from chronic sleep loss, weight loss, and living under extreme stress. Our homes are battle zones complete with the constant drone of machinery."
NIMBYs or sane people driven to desperation? It's hard to tell from the tone of Urban Almanac's post and the petition. The latter does cite a police report, which SFoodie obtained a copy of this morning, that attests to the antagonism between the parties. It documents an April 11 incident when the police responded to call reporting a non-violent fight outside the restaurant. The neighbor, who lives on Lapidge street just behind Grub, told the officers the owner had been standing on the roof of his building, calling her names. When she opened the door, she claims he yelled, "Get in to your dog house, you c***."
