a foodie news roundup for you!
Starting with our friends at Mission Mission, news of a new restaurant coming to the MUS•e•YUM backyard, on 24th Street! We already had Rosamunde for top quality sausages, Mission Pie for the ultimate dessert pie and Humphry Slocombe’s for the ice cream. . . this restaurant puts all three foods into one space! One stop shopping we say…
We miss Capri in the Castro. It was a great pocket restaurant for a family style dinner that didn’t break the bank. One could always count on the surly waiter for a funny if not scandalous quip… has he asked everyone to take their shirts off at one point or another? Since the demise of Capri we’ve wondered what would take her place. Tablehopper has the scoop. Spanish! The name, Canela. We love the concept, especially the idea that they’ll have space for casual dropping in to take an espresso… very european indeed!
More of our favorite things, Chocolate, wine, cheese and charcuterie and in one very cool up and coming neighborhood, the Dogpatch. Very close to our favorite ice cream spot, Mr and Mrs Miscellaneous:

We like Super Duper a lot. It’s definitely grown up since it opened a year ago in the Castro. While at first it seemed like a very good (and more expensive) version of an In and Out Burger (thin patties and thin-cut fries, made with very fresh, high-quality ingredients) they ‘ve added some interesting, larger burgers to the menu as well as some great ice cream desserts made with Strauss organics. Success has lead to expansion, not only to Market Street but now, the Marina:
