Tyler Florence Thinks Chicken, and a New Spot for the Blue Bottle and Créme Brûlée Carts
The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco food scene.
Tyler Florence may take to the road to serve chicken, and only chicken. Grub Street reveals Florence shared, in an interview with Yumsugar, that the success of the Wayfare Tavern's fried chicken has inspired him to toy with the idea of serving it via a food truck. We would grab a leg.
Mark's Bar is now serving drinks in the former Lush Lounge spot (1092 Post at Polk). The Tender divulges the new bar held a soft opening on Wednesday and is waiting for its temporary alcohol license to become permanent.
Construction news: The Richmond Blog reports that when the renovations are complete at the shuttered Video Cafe space on 21st Ave. and Geary, a new Chinese restaurant is slated to move in. And LiveSOMA reveals we should be eating, drinking, and bowling at Lucky Strikes Lanes by spring. Construction is slated for completion by the end of February, including the 30 days it takes to install lanes. Who knew?
Last month we mentioned the Blue Bottle cart had found a home on Division and Brannan after its Dolores Park spot was nixed. Grub Street now reports the cart is parking on Castro and 17th St., which is not too far from the Castro Coffee Company. In the evenings, the spot is serving as a home to the Crème Brûlée Cart.
