Inside Radio Africa & Kitchen, Ready to Open March 8

After over seven years of running a successful underground and pop-up dinner operation, Radio Africa & Kitchen, Ethiopia native Eskender Aseged has his first brick and mortar restaurant at the ready to open next week. A project that's been in the works for over two years, Aseged's restaurant space and some start-up funds came from the City of San Francisco as part of their Bayview redevelopment efforts. The restaurant also had a very successful Kickstarter campaign that raised over $14,000. Food will reflect the cuisine of Red Sea- and Mediterranean-bordering countries Aseged has become known for, and vegetables will come from the Bayview Community Garden he founded in 2010.

Now do take a look around above at the space designed by Shatara Architects. According to Inside Scoop, there's room for 55 people, and as you can see there are communal tables and a nice open kitchen. At the outset, dinner will be served from Tuesday through Saturday, and lunch will begin on April 3rd.

Other Bayview redev project Limon Rotisserie opened late last year, and the adjacent B Side BBQ from Tanya Holland is still en route.
