Following the success of the upscale Mexico City-inspired La Urbana, San Francisco is on the verge of welcoming another high-profile restaurant influenced by the fine dining of the Distrito Federal. According to Hoodline, Mexico City restaurateur Gabriela Cámara has chosen to open her first US restaurant in San Francisco at 149 Fell St. (between Van Ness and Franklin).

While still in the early stages of menu development, Cámara revealed that the restaurant will likely focus on fresh, sustainable seafood, much like her original (and wildly successful) Mexico City restaurant, Contramar and its sister spot Merotoro.

A welcome addition to a rather lackluster block of Mid-Market, the potential name for the new venture is "Diana La Cazadora", which translates to "Diana the Huntress" and takes its name from a fountain in Mexico City. Look for an opening sometime in the first half of 2015.
