San Franciscans have been known to love a charity case, and recent news from not one, but two restaurants-to-be has confirmed our willingness to rally behind a cause, especially when the promise of good food is involved. Mission Mission tells us Commonwealth, the impending charitable restaurant from former Bar Tartine chef, Jason Fox, and Mission Street Food founder, Anthony Myint, reached its cash-raising goal of 10K, 22 days before the cut-off date of May 5.
Construction has already begun at the old El Herradero taqueria space on Mission and 18th, but there's no question this new flow of change will whisk them readily toward the expected late summer opening date of their innovative do-gooder restaurant concept. And down in SOMA a happy tweet from the folks building out The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen announces they won the VerticalResponse video contest for $5K toward their future vortex of gourmet grilled cheese. Dreams about toasted gruyere in SOMA on balmy May afternoons may now commence.
