Carmen's Becomes SB40, Serving BBQ, Oysters, Lots of Beer

Carmen and Benito Solis, owners of Filipino-American café Carmen's Restaurant at Pier 40 have enlisted the good people of Brisbane's 7 Mile House to completely redo their concept. The sign you see here says it all (almost): "Coming Soon SB40 Oysters, BBQ & Burgers." 7 Mile owner Monica Bulos tells Eater they are working with chef Dominic Ainza of Mercury Lounge to fill out the menu with some sandwiches, homemade hummus and entrees, including seafood pasta, salmon and steak dishes. The aforementioned bbq will consist of pulled pork and ribs at the start.

Inside, expect most of the changes at the bar, now built out so 12 can sit there. The tap count has also increased from four to 11 and they've painted the interior to orange, dark brown and beige "in honor of the Giants." Speakeasy reps are planning to supply two beers for the taps and an outdoor beer garden for game days in the style of the 21st Amendment. Bulos said they're shooting for a Monday opening, although she didn't sound too hopeful that would actually happen. Bank on this coming soon and look out for beefed-up bbq options and a beer and wine cocktail menu later this spring. [EaterWire]
