Liholiho Yacht Club, chef Ravi Kapur’s culinary homage to his Hawaiian heritage, is back at 871 Sutter Street and sporting a new look. The restaurant will reopen on November 22 after a number of big moves for the team behind the business during the last few years, including hosting a chocolate start-up behind its closed doors and opening the also-popular Good Good Culture Club in the Mission District. The San Francisco Chronicle reports fan-favorite dishes, including the nori crackers and pineapple ice cream, will be on the menu once more.

The restaurant looks a bit different after a renovation. Boor Projects, the design team behind Sightglass Coffee and Lord Stanley, remodeled the space during the closure. New dishes will roll out, too, such as crispy swordfish katsu. The reopening is finally moving now that Good Good Culture Club, a whole other restaurant, is settled and the team can focus on its original location once more. “Realistically we had to open Good Good Culture Club, and we couldn’t do two restaurants,” co-owner Jeff Hanak told the paper. Louie’s Gen-Gen Room, where Topogato got its start in the early days of the pandemic, will likely reopen in early 2023.
