The Dish Supersize Edition: Ironside, Eve Lounge, Deep, 222 Hyde, Three Seasons, So Many More!

New, 1 comment

An explosion of new openings to ring in the week; if we missed one, let us know.

1) SoMa: Following a series of test runs last week, Ironside is open to the public for the first time, at this very second. For the time being, she's only open for coffee/breakfast and lunch, the latter which consists of pizzas, sandwiches, salads and the like (check out the menus online). Come October, dinner service will complete the "all-day" concept. 680 Second Street, between Brannan and Townsend; (415) 896-1127; website [EaterWire]

2) SoMa: Friday was the grand opening of Eve, the new bar/lounge from the team behind John Colins. Bartender extraordinaire Scott Baird and his 15 Romolo crew are consulting on the cocktail menu, and the place is going for a Gatsby-esque vibe, but late night hours turn clubby. For the curious, happy hour is probably the best way to tackle it for the first time. 575 Howard Street, between First and Second; (415) 543-5874; website [EaterWire]

3) SoMa: Billed as San Francisco's first and only "kink cafe and boutique," Wicked Grounds finally passed its inspections and is open for business. And hey, there are amazing Leather Week events starting tomorrow evening. 289 Eighth Street, between Howard and Folsom; (415) 503-0405; website [EaterWire]

4) Tenderloin: Sure, Beretta paved the way for pizza and cocktails, but how about pizza and dancing? Because that's what the reborn 222 Hyde is trying to do. On the menu are about seven pizzas—including one called the Nutter—plus antipasti and "braised specials," but as Grubz points out, it's still mostly a techno-centric dance club. 222 Hyde Street; between Turk and Eddy; (415) 345-8222; website [EaterWire]

5) The Marina: Last week, contemporary Vietnamese restaurant Three Seasons reopened after a brief hiatus that saw it get remodeled for its ninth anniversary. New features include a bar menu, new design and coming soon, mid-week lounge hours with DJs. 3317 Steiner Street, between Chestnut and Lombard; (415) 567-1008; website [EaterWire]

6) Noe Valley: The soft opening period for Deep has come to pass, and the "modern izakaya"/sushi joint is now really open for business. Dishes from chef Thomas Weibull's menu include uni pasta and a miso-marinated lamb. Update: a commenter (below) points out a key fact: there's no booze yet. 1740 Church Street; between 29th and Day; (415) 648-3337 [EaterWire]

7) Financial District: On the Belden-adjacent stretch of Kearny, a new Mediterranean option is up and running, and it already has one Yelp shill. Petrino is open for lunch and dinner, and describes itself on its website as a "full-service Mediterranean restaurant with an interactive dining experience, and is becoming a preferred gourmet destination in San Francisco." Well now! 322 Kearny Street, between Bush and Pine; (415) 391-3737; website [EaterWire]

8) Union Square: Last but not least, the Chron brings word of a new cupcake joint downtown called Cako: "Owner Tina Choy offers a selection of about 20 varieties of cupcakes, cookies, muffins and scones." Open 9am to 9pm. 211 O' Farrell Street, near Powell; (415) 404-7303; website [Chron]
