Nombe Revealed, Complete With Late Night Street Window

New, 1 comment

With Sozai riding off into the sunset last week, big sis Nombe is ready to make its debut on a bigger stage—the Mission, as opposed to Irving Street—with a similar izakaya concept. The public opening is currently slated for Friday, and as if the late nights (until 2AM on weekends) and extensive beer/sake offerings weren't enough to swoon the Missionites, there's also a street food window opening at 11PM.
