NoPa Blowout: Wine Kitchen, Barrel Head Brewery, More!

1) NoPa: Wine Kitchen is a small plates-beer-and-wine concept from two pros with Commonwealth, Bar Tartine, Contigo, Per Se, and Spruce on their resumes. The joint should be opening at 507 Divisadero in "a couple of weeks." [Haighteration]

2) NoPa Extra: Barrel Head Brewery has resumed plans to open at the long-vacant 1785 Fulton Street space next to Starbucks. Owner Ivan Hopkinson is planning to put a handcrafted wooden stave bar, weathered tables, gas lanterns, and a fireplace into the space. This is going to take some time. [Tablehopper]

3) MORE NoPa!: The Mill's Four Barrel coffee-Josey Bakery bakery combination platter should be ready for service on Divisadero Street "before the end of the year." [GrubStreet]
