Now here’s an awesome Bloody Mary

Which reminds me, we should have another Bloody Marython one of these days, right? Any new contenders?

Fajita Falafel Burrito

Even Danny Bowien isn’t sure that this hybrid can work. Remember when mashups were just songs that played together?

It’s happening again

New York bagels, flown in overnight, served up fancy at Dear Mom. 180 this time, one per person.

Tamale Lady brick-and-mortar will open soon at 16th and Capp

SFist reports:

Today SFist has learned that her lease is, indeed, signed for a space near 16th and Mission, construction has begun, and she’ll be having a press conference in the coming weeks.

As Supervisor David Campos’s aide Nathan Allbee tells us, she “should be ready to open by late spring.”

Also today we can confirm that the location is at 16th and Capp, across from Chile Lindo Empanadas and a couple doors over from Maruya, a.k.a. the former Bar Bambino.

Eat some balls!

Eater SF reports:

Balls Deep Arancini, from Mandy Jay, Jonn Villa, and Matt Eloy (who’ve cooked at Big Sur’s Henry Miller Library and at Seven Hills, respectively), is serving fried risotto balls in flavors like eggplant-pesto, avocado-jalapeño, and tomato-roasted garlic to fortify Saturday drinkers at El Rio (9 pm-1 am).

Yum! Let’s get to work!

So close and yet so far

I can see the change in the people that come in. The street we were on before made some people uncomfortable, especially older people and families.

Sales are up 40%.

Fatty Melt

Wes “Wes Burger” Rowe, the man behind last week’s bagel shitstorm, is doing a “Fatty Melt” popup this Friday night at Virgil’s, and they look pretty damn good.

Let the shitstorm begin!
