Clairvoyant Cafe Owner, Casey's Pizza and Bomb Truck Roll Out
The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco food scene.
A clairvoyant, match-making cafe owner? Maybe sitcom writers have run out ideas. Inside Scoop shares a Craigslist casting call for a local pilot in which a female café owner uses special powers to help singles find true love. Honestly, we think this idea sounds a little stale, but are curious if the set will resemble any real S.F. cafés.
Food truck news: Pizzas and "bombicles" are now roaming S.F. streets. Eater SF shares, via Urban Daddy, Casey's Pizza Truck is parking at Off the Grid starting this week. Meanwhile, via Daily Candy, the Bomb Truck is driving the streets of the Mission selling popsicles of original concoctions, such as limeade cucumber mint and horchata. Just look for the seafoam-green van.
Historic delays: Mozzeria, the napoletana pizza joint set for the former Il Cantuccio spot (3228 16th St. at Guerrero), is facing building preservation hurdles. Grub Street reports the building was recently declared historic by the aptly named Historic Preservation Commission, and with the bequeath of this title comes
a headache responsibilities. The commission is fighting for the removal of the modern additions to the building Il Cantuccio installed. No word yet on an opening date.
New eats for Fall: Eater SF shares that the Pearl's Deluxe Burger slated for Market is set to open Oct 1., and the Mission's Charles Phan's Wo Hing General Store plans to start serving Chinese street food by mid-October.
And the Fisherman's Wharf Hooters and In-N-Out just got some tourist-dollar competition. The latest S.F. outpost of Chipotle opens today (333 Jefferson at Leavenworth).
