Dogpatch continues to heat up with the news that the team behind Piccino will open a new project, called Noon All Day (690 Indiana St.). Owners Margherita Stewart Sagan and Sher Rogat, along with director of operations Kerry Glancy, plan to open a casual restaurant and coffee bar this summer, Tablehopper reports.
The 1,100-square-foot space is located in a new development, adjacent to Esprit Park and the Dogpatch Arts Plaza (currently under construction). It will have a full kitchen, and offer around 65 seat. A small menu from Piccino’s opening chef Carlo Espina will offer up to eight items influenced by a variety of cultures, like a curry clay pot dish, or fried rice. And, thankfully, they’re working on some kind of meatball sandwich using Piccino’s very excellent meatballs. Beer and wine will be available, with potential for retail sales (if the permit goes through).
It will be an all-day counter service affair from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., offering coffee and pastries in the morning, and heartier options throughout the day. Tablehopper also reports that there will be a concierge at the entrance to help guests navigate; eventually an app will be available for ordering ahead, or for delivery. Grab-and-go food will also be available, a bonus for employees and patients at the nearby USF Benioff Children’s Hospital and neighborhood folk looking for lunch.
It’s a welcome addition to a neighborhood with some very good, but far between dining options. Recent and upcoming additions include newly opened Glena’s Tacos and an iteration of Daniel Patterson’s Alta CA at the Minnesota Street Project. Stay tuned for details.
