EaterWire: Luisa Breaks Ground at the Barleycorn

Tetanus shots needed at 1415 Larkin Street.

NOB HILL—The above mess you see is the newest action at Luisa Hanson's maligned Larkin/California Street colonies. As mentioned by a tipster earlier in the week, work has indeed finally started in the hallowed former Barleycorn space (aka Duffy's). Now, even though Luisa has said that she's aiming for February, this does not look like a tidy project by any means. They are ripping out the floor, rumors of asbestos continue to swirl, and work continues simultaneously at the restaurant next door. Busy times, no? One more photo and a compare/contrast follow:
