This one is new on me.

Let’s check the Twitter:

“Born and raised in Ireland and Eritrea, we have always had one thing in common: a love for wholesome, fresh and delicious food & come up with Afro Celt cuisine.”

OK fine.

The neighbors, like Ashley H., seemed pleased, anyway:

“I live right around the block from Baker & Banker, and when I saw that a new restaurant was opening I was so excited to try it out, so I went for opening night, and it was great!

The inside decor is pretty nice and simple with low lighting and mirrors on the walls. To start I had a salad with goat cheese, pomegranate, persimmon, and I think pear, which was super delicious. It was a nice light way to start out the meal. For my main course, I had the scallop dish with brussel sprout leaves and sun choke puree, and it was superb! For desert I had the cheese cake apple crisp, and as a cheesecake expert, it was a great mixture of a traditional cheesecake with apple in the middle – I totally recommend it!

For me this place is a really cute neighborhood restaurant, and I definitely plan on going back. I also think it’s definitely worth a trip even if you aren’t in the neighborhood – it’s great!”

“Market-Driven New American Cuisine” – Baker & Banker Set to Open This Week in Pac Heights

Monday, November 30th, 2009

Combining our twin obsessions of food and money, it’s Baker & Banker! And they’re all set to serve up steak, cast-iron potatoes and more starting this week (probably tomorrow, December 1, 2009) at 1701 Octavia betwixt Bush and Pine.

Will our Quince replacement get along well with its NIMBY-ish neighbors in this residential hood? We Can Only Hope. 

As it looked a few weeks back:

Eater SF has the deets:

“As you’ll recall, Jeff Banker (of Home fame) and his wife Lori Baker are opening a new American, “welcoming neighborhood restaurant” there, and lo and behold, it’s coming along quite nicely. Notable designer Michael Brennan has spruced up the cozy interior with some dark leather banquettes and a dark wood bar…”

Why don’t you drop by sometime and see the results of the efforts of this cute couple? It’s already(!) rated five stars on Yelp, so that’s a good(?) sign.

More details, after the jump.

Bon courage, B&B!

Jannah, Serving Middle Eastern California Cuisine on Fulton, Opens Wednesday, July 8th

Monday, July 6th, 2009

At the site (if not the exact same address) of the former Korean-themed brothel Gabin comes Jannah. It’s at 1775 Fulton in the NOPA, just down the street from the candyBar at 1335.

And guess what, they’re hiring! Servers, apparently, atleast that’s what the signs said.

And guess what, they’re already five-star rated at the Yelp!

See you there on Wednesday, the updated forecast for opening day.

Former NOPA Brothel Gabin to Become Jannah, with Middle Eastern California Cuisine

Monday, April 13th, 2009

Man oh man, the oddly-named “scary,” “sketchy” nightclub Gabin (nee Daebul) at 1775 Fulton Street (or 17xx, if you prefer) near Masonic was almost famous in the North of Panhandle Area / Western Addition area back in the day. It was one of San Francisco’s San Mateo County-style private karaoke joints, oddly located right across the street from a big old Lucky / Albertsons supermarket. 

Read for yourself some hilarious encounters on the Yelp. And don’t miss the contretemps of the white male “nosey parkers” of the North of Panhandle Neighborhood Association attacking “diversity and sex-positiveness” here, from way back in 2006. (And let’s not mention 2006 again, no sir.)

But now, the signs say “Jannah”, so it looks like “Middle Eastern California Cuisine” is headed our way.

And they’ll have plenty of delicious beverages to boot.

See you there!
