Welcome back to the Plywood Report, your regular, all-encompassing chronicle of the next generation of restaurants and bars to grace our fair city. Notice some fresh plywood on your block? Let us know. Bonus points and Japanese tacos if you include photos.
1) The Marina: For some odd reason, Steiner Street's upcoming Let's Be Frank was left off the Chron's profile of Cass Calder Smith earlier this week. Anyway, the first brick-and-mortar outpost of the gourmet hot dog purveyor (see the cute little puppies?) is coming along, if slightly delayed; per the latest update, the new ETA is 5/4. [PLYWOOD]
2) Ferry Building: The signage for Il Cane Rosso by Daniel Patterson has been up for a few weeks now, but thanks to a tipster, we might as well share them here (it's such a nice logo, after all). The aim for Patterson's rotisserie-centric eatery is June, and as seen above, possible deliciousness includes a citrus brioche with buffalo milk yogurt and wildflower honey. [PLYWOOD]
3) Laurel Village: Plywood vet with big backers Beautifull is just about ready to roll out. The "foodspace" has announced April 29th (next Wednesday) as its debut in the old Cafe Lo Cubano space on California and Locust. More on Beautifull here. [POST-PLYWOOD]
4) Potrero Hill: Another plywood update: exterior plywood is down and there's a new coat of paint at Horatius, the massive bistro, wine bar and retail combo on Rhode Island. The interior, however, seems to be lagging behind. [PLYWOOD]
5) Ballpark: It's been some time (by recent standards, at least) since a new froyo joint has been in the works. Here you go: according to Froyo Girl, Blush will be moving into a King Street space next to the ballpark, right across from Amici's. You've been warned. [FYG]
