POLK GULCH—In many ways, you have to feel for the new ownership team behind Pasha. Back in late summer, they bought the place and erected the banner so proudly announcing the grand reopening (somehow still up to this day, by the way). Then, in December, they got hit with damages from a big fire next door at Star of India. Initial estimates saw the place back up in three weeks, before Christmas; now, March is the new estimate. We're tempted to venture a guess that the place might be doing more renovations than just fire damage control. [EaterWire]
SAN FRANCISCO—Earlier today, the Board of Supervisors met to discuss the calorie counting referendum. Opposed by the Golden Gate Restaurant Association in its current form, the bill would require restaurants with over 15 California locations to list all kinds of health info. Today, the Supes took testimony from both sides of the argument (more on that later) and decided to reconvene on the 28th, so you can enjoy that Big Mac in peace for a little longer, TK.
