Welcome back to the Plywood Report, your regular, all-encompassing report of the next generation of restaurants. Notice something new on your block? Do tell. Bonus points and complimentary Bauer website tutorials if you include photos.
1) Financial District: A tipster sends along an update from Georges, the longtime plywood vet in the old London Wine Bar. The Mediterranean seafood spot might be slightly behind schedule, but the project is by no means dead and construction is in full swing. [PLYWOOD]
2) The Richmond:: Via the Examiner, Burma Superstar's Inner Richmond empire continues to grow, as they've taken over the beloved Eats diner on the corner of Second and Clement, which is now shuttered. The Superstar people will keep the name intact, but will shift the concept to an Asian breakfast spot. Sources also say that dinner is a possibility down the road. [PLYWOOD]
3) The Mission: Someone not named Luisa Hanson is working on a restaurant in the 1007 Guerrero space that was last seen. Since Luisa never got her wine bar open thanks to some neighborhood/city tiffs, she cut bait. The new inhabitant will be called Quba. The owner previously owned Larkin Street's Sahara Turkish Cuisine, and seeing Quba's definition, a Middle Eastern spot seems like a reasonable guess. [PLYWOOD]
