EaterWire: Bollyhood Ready to Entertain and MORE!

THE MISSION—Evolution is at work at Bollyhood Cafe, as the crew has applied for a "Place of Entertainment" license. Of course, the main entertainment is (will be) the constant stream of Bollywood movies, but the good folks over on 19th Street also want to become more of a lounge-type place to complement the Baobabs, so they've moved in a piano (and with it, a jazz night) as well.

EMBARCADERO—A chocolate factory (!) grows on Pier 17, but not just any old chocolate factory. From the Merc: "Having conquered the frontiers of outer space and information-age publishing, respectively, former space shuttle technologist Timothy Childs and Wired magazine co-founder Louis Rossetto are hoping to turn the wide world of chocolate on its head. Their start-up? A new factory that, when completed in late spring, will be the only one actually manufacturing chocolate in San Francisco ... Their company is called TCHO, with the "t" referring to'"technology' and 'cho' a nickname for chocolate. Pronounced 'cho' with a silent 't,' TCHO aims to change the way we make, buy and think about chocolate." Former space shuttle technologist ... chocolate factory ... we'll be sorely disappointed if there isn't a flying glass elevator involved somewhere. [SJMN, via CH]
