Hanson Reveal, Part II: The Front Room's Fate

Not to be outdone by the drama next door, Luisa Hanson's other Nob Hill colonization project is beginning to take shape quite rapidly. The former Front Room space at 1500 California shall be called Pompei (one "i" supposedly). It is scheduled to open in four weeks' time, and will specialize in "pizza and pasta," presumably in the same Americanized style as Luisa's on Union Street. The good news is that the open-air toilet has finally been removed the premises, but the bad news is that pigeons are still nesting there, that Columbus Avenue Italian eateries are multiplying elsewhere, that the Front Room (like the Barleycorn) is/was a beloved institution ... and pretty much everything else.
