EaterWire: The Helmand May Rise Yet, and More

BROADWAY STRIP—Helmand Palace is doing just fine on Van Ness, but rumors continue to swirl around the original Helmand on Broadway, closed since last spring. From Chowhound: "P.S. The old location may re-open in ten months. I had a little conversation about it with the owner last night." More reading on the situation in the Eater Archives. [Chowhound]

THE MISSION—Over in the developing Inner Valencia area, we have on good authority that Bodhi, the newish Vietnamese restaurant under the freeway, is back on the market. The Guardian's glowing November review describes the space as such: "But let's begin with the building, a gracious old brick structure that's been subtly brought up to date with a good sandblasting and new windows, which are to a facade what new glasses are to a human face. Inside, the restaurant consists of two boxy, high-ceilinged dining rooms, connected by a grand passageway, like a squared-off proscenium arch..." With the recent uplift in the area (Conduit et al.), the intriguing space at 211 Valencia could be one to watch over the next couple months. [EaterWire]
