Mr. & Mrs. Miscellaneous, Central Kitchen, MORE!

DOGPATCH - Ian Flores and Anabelle Topacio, the husband-and-wife team behind Mr. & Mrs. Miscellaneous, are hoping to open this 20-seat ice cream shop across the street from Serpentine by the second week of May. The two met at Spago in Beverly Hills and have since worked at Postrio and Oakland's Firebrand Bread respectively. Expect 8-10 ice cream flavors on offer at any given time (ranging from classics like mint chip to adventurous flavors like ballpark, with chocolate-covered pretzels, peanuts, and beer) in a clean, sunny space with exposed 22-foot ceilings. They'll also offer baked goods, homemade candy, and maybe coffee a little further down the line. [EaterWire]

Flour + Water chef Thomas McNaughton will oversee the new, dynamic dining program slated to open at 3000 20th Street in Spring 2011. [EaterWire]

They will offer some TBD "too-good-to-be-true" specials from the 25th to the 29th prior to closure. Look for updates and sneak peeks of progress by becoming a fan on the restaurant’s Facebook page.
