Capp Street Crap reports:
On Sunday night, an ad popped up on Craigslist that lists a sale price for the restaurant and wine bar of $150,000. Pauline’s, known for thin-crust pizzas and creative toppings that were often dependent on what was good in the restaurant’s organic gardens, has been in business at 260 Valencia St. since 1985. The restaurant has also long had a tradition of stocking their tables with containers of crayons, giving patrons young and old a chance to doodle on paper-covered tablecloths while they waited for their food.
I stumbled onto this old photo (by Flickr user marie.francille) after I stumbled onto this old Mission Mission post (about people not eating at Ti Couz because the name made them think of vaginas) while looking for Star Wars-related Mission Mission posts for the “related posts” section of my post about Doc Pop’s new pin earlier.
Look at that salad. It sure was a nice big salad.
Same owners as before! Tablehopper reports:
It’s funny how things work out sometimes. After making the hard decision to close The Roosevelt Tamale Parlor last December, owners Barry Moore and Aaron Presbrey thought they had a buyer lined up for the restaurant. Well, the deal fell through, and after trying and failing to find other buyers, they decided to reopen the restaurant and do the concept that resonated the most for them. Meet ~THE ROOSEVELT SIP N EAT~.
They reopened last week! Here’s the menu:

Dammmmmmmmn how good does that look??? Chef Deborah tells us about her special event tonight:
Nusantara is a contemporary Indonesian term for the Indonesian archipelago. Taken from an oath by Gajah Mada in 1336, Nusantara means “outer islands”. Based on the Majapahit concept of state includes; East Java, Madura, Bali, South Sumatra, Singapore, East Timor and Southern Thailand.
The food that I will represent speaks of those countries and how much we influence each other.
Dinner will be held at The Tradesman in the Mission district, a contemporary yet elegant space.
