Cafe Arguello Closes, Makes Room For Sausage

Reader Eric sends in an update on the Cafe Arguello space:

Arguello was limping along there for a while, but it seems they’ve actually closed now.  No sign of any changes inside, but hopefully soon there will be sausages and beer.

Progress!  Rosamunde here we come!  As a stereotypical Pole (haven’t you noticed how crazy dumb I am?), I’m stoked on sausage and happy to have more of it in the neighborhood.  That’s what she said + joke about the Castro, maybe.

They’ll have vegan dogs too, dudes.  Get ready!

Sausage Fest: Rosamunde Coming Soon!

Oh dang!  Encased meats!

Finally, some more info on Rosamunde’s new Mission location!  Take it away, Grub Street:

If all goes according to plan, there will be a second location of Rosamunde Sausage Grill in the Mission District by January 1. Owner Jennifer Tucci told Grub Street today that she and new partner Josh Margolis have closed a deal to buy the current Cafe Arguello space on Mission Street near 24th Street. They plan to keep the existing Rosamunde menu, adding a couple of dishes that Margolis says “won’t be expanded that far off of sausages.” They’re building out the bar area and adding some 20 beer taps. The rest of the space will stay more or less the same, including those giant windows, but they’ll replace the existing tables and chairs with new communal tables, tall tables, and regular tables with bench seats. They won’t have table service, so you still order and pick up the food and beer at the counter.

Yeah!  January 1st!  Ring the New Year in with a fist full of sausage (that’s what he said?).  My personal favorite is the Hungarian (that’s what she said?).
