The City welcomes a downpour of restaurant openings every fall, but when said restaurants actually open is anyone's guess. The Dish is happy to bring you the latest in debuts.
1) Fish & Farm: Better late than never, the hotly-anticipated Fish & Farm will debut tomorrow night in the Mark Twain Hotel. You'll recall that there were some false alarms earlier in the month, but we have on good authority that Thursday is indeed the day for Frank Klein and the Duggans (of Original Joe's fame). As discussed earlier, Fish & Farm will specialize in sustainable meats and fish, and only a couple entrees top the $20 mark. The restaurant design is "vintage chic" (somewhat evocative of Salt House); plus they have a logo that can only be described as "snazzy." And, as Thrillist points out in this morning's newsletter, the Fish & Farm people have remained true to San Francisco's, um, hippie roots by harvesting their own herbs on the roof. 339 Taylor Street at Ellis Street, Union Square, (415) 474-FISH [Eater Staff, Official Site]
2) Craig's Place: The onetime Platanos space in the Mission is now home to a diner called Craig's Place, though you really have no business calling it a diner if it closes at 9pm. Hence, we shall refer to it as "a classic American cuisine establishment." Oh, and what was WSJ article about restaurateurs offering free food to swing five-star Yelp reviews? 598 Guerrero Street at 18th Street, the Mission (415) 355-9191 [Chron]
