Weird Fish is now Urban Fish

Capp Street Crap reports:

Well, this is fishier than expected. Despite plans to reopen it as a French bistro called Bistro Le Bon Vivre by summer, Dante’s Weird Fish looks to have been renamed “Urban Fish.”

Recently, a new wooden sign went up. The Urban Fish menu posted outside looks to be full of vegan and pescatarian items, including some old Weird Fish dishes and new offerings like fish sandwiches and mussels and fries.

Read on for more info and pics.

Reasons to love Cafe St. Jorge

1. Their coffee is great!
2. Their food is delicious! (I think about their sardine + fava bean crostini at least once a week)
3. They have excellent taste in men! (see stickers above)
4. Andrea, Cafe St. Jorge’s owner, is the sweetest person!
5. They’re right around the corner from your house (if you happen to be me or my neighbor)
6. They’re giving away FREE COFFEE all day today, to celebrate their 2-year anniversary!

Happy birthday, Cafe St. Jorge. I love you so.

Here’s a nice analog Yelp review of the new KronnerBurger

Cool new innovation in artisanal cocktail flavoring

Drink of the Week: Floating on a Cloud

Float a little Fernet on top of a pint of Anchor Flying Cloud Stout. It’s a variation on the San Francisco classic The Bottom of the Bay. Dark and stormy.

Drink of the Week: Jello shots at Chino (eaten with chopsticks)

They contain gin, sloe gin, apricot and lime, and they’re real fun to try to pick up and transfer to your gullet.

Luna Park has shuttered and it will soon be something new from the Mission Beach Cafe folks.

The former Specchio recently reopened as the Buffalo Club but then received a cease-and-desist order from something else with Buffalo in the name, so it is reopening as Cease & Desist.
