Joanna Karlinsky and Popups Take Over Food at the Winemakers' Speakeasy

In an email, Karlinsky told SFoodie she will begin cooking this week. "I will start with brunch this weekend (Saturday and Sunday), and then add lunch, probably starting Tuesday. [I will] add breakfast in a few weeks, as well as a breakfast kiosk for fast, takeout morning pastries & savory bites. Then, we'll start working on fun foods for early and late happy hours."
The first two popups confirmed: Tommy Halvorson and Crystal Yang will restart their EAT Restaurant on Thursdays and Fridays starting this week, October 13 and 14. Bernal Supper Club will hold its first Monday night dinner on October 17.
Karlinsky says the move will help her bring in her most loyal clientele. "All of my previous restaurants have been in Pacific Heights, and it's a neighborhood that doesn't want to cross Mission Street," she says. "But who won't come to Valencia these days?"
Winemakers' Speakeasy: 1152 Valencia (at 22nd St.), 401-7258. Current tasting hours: noon-10 p.m. daily.
