Grocery Café is open in Jack London Square

After a few fake-outs, Grocery Café has finally opened its doors in Jack London Square in the former Hahn’s Hibachi space. EBX reports that it still looks pretty much exactly like Hahn’s, but owner William Lue’s excellent Burmese food is now on the menu. It’s a few dollars more expensive across the board — which is to be expected with an upgrade in location — but is still a good value for Lue’s generous portions. It’s now open for lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday from 11:30 a.m.-9 p.m. at 90 Franklin St.

There’s a new chicken sandwich in town

This town really loves a fried chicken sandwich (and a roast chicken, for that matter), and now there’s a delectable new option in Hayes Valley. Sarah Rich (aka Sally Hurricane) has debuted her famous fried chicken on the menu at RT Rotisserie. It’s served on a Kaiser roll with pickled red onions, cabbage slaw, herbs, and chipotle yogurt and brined with a buttermilk-Douglas fir brine that’s also used on RT Rotisserie’s juicy rotisserie pork and cauliflower. For this week only, it’s available exclusively via Caviar for pickup/delivery; it’ll join the full RT Rotisserie menu starting August 9.

A German restaurant is headed to the Castro

Prospective restauratuer Salome Buelow, whose family still resides in Germany, plans to open a restaurant in the former Rub-A-Dub-Dub laundromat. Buelow is planning “not Bavarian” food influenced by traditional Southern German food, reports Hoodline. German open-faced sandwiches, charcuterie, and an onion tart (flammkuchen) could headline the menu. Stay tuned as she goes through the permitting processes; Buelow hopes to open in 2018.
