The shuttering of longtime Pan-Latin restaurant Charanga left a prime location open on Mission Street between 19th and 20th, and the spot's finally been snapped up. On the way is a new spot that will serve British pub-style fare with California touches. Murio's Trophy Room partners Edward Sargent and Rodger Howell are behind the project, to be called Carsons (perhaps in honor of Rodger's dog of the same name). Matthew Nudelman, formerly of Greenburger's, will be designing the menu, and a full liquor license means that cocktails will be on offer.
Tablehopper brings details of the interior revamp, which will come courtesy of Haleh Cunningham and Bernadette Holmes of Thornbird Styling (the same team that did Murio's). Expect a long bar, bench and table seating and at least one cozy nook, and look out for a midcentury flair to the interior. There'll be seating for 50-60 guests total, and tentative hours will be 2pm to 2am, making this a happy hour, dinner and late-night spot.
