“Quinoa & Kale” Pas de Deux: Two Great Tastes That Taste Great Together – Food Fads Meet, as Temporary EqualsThursday, July 9th, 2015
Kale’s had its run, so it now it only gets second-billing when it shares the spotlight with up-and-coming Quinoa:
I remember the days when it was Kale & Quinoa.
Next step will be “Quinoa with Kale.” And after that, no Kale at all.
CHIPOTLE Opens in the Great Middle of Frisco: July 2, 2015 at Geary and Masonic – Mervyn’s Heights Will Never Be The SameWednesday, July 1st, 2015
Who knows, maybe they‘ve soft opened already by this late date? IDK.
Here’s all I know about this “Mexican” “Restaurant”
Chipotle Mexican Grill
2675 Geary Blvd San Francisco, CA 94118
Today 11:00 am – 10:00 pm
Anyway, here’s what it looked like a week ago, complete with acres of free parking right out front:
Speaking of which, man this place is going to be hard to get to – nobody would purposefully design the streets around City Centre Mall the way they are these days. First came Sears and then came the rise of the millionaire NIMBY neighbors (yes even here, in this bleak place) and then you mix in five decades of random happenstance, and then you’ll end up with a rat-maze of one-way streets and left-turn onlys.
Here’s the map:
If you’re at Geary and Mason, simply enter Target, take the escalator upstairs, exit Target and then take the Great Chipotle Tunnel past the Panera Bread and boom, there you go.
Bon Courage, I guess.
“SUPERVISOR MALIA COHEN AND INSTACART PARTNER TO EXPAND GROCERY DELIVERY TO SAN FRANCISCO FOOD DESERTS”Wednesday, June 17th, 2015
The news of the day, for those in the 94124 and 94134:
SUPERVISOR MALIA COHEN AND INSTACART PARTNER TO EXPAND GROCERY DELIVERY TO SAN FRANCISCO FOOD DESERTS
Grocery delivery now available in Bayview Hunters Point and Visitacion Valley Neighborhoods
San Francisco, CA – Supervisor Malia Cohen and Instacart today announced a new partnership that will expand grocery delivery services to the Bayview Hunters Point and Visitacion Valley neighborhoods.
Under this new expansion, residents in the 94124 and 94134 zip codes will now have access to delivery services from all of Instacart’s existing partners including Safeway, Whole Foods Market, Smart and Final and Costco. Bayview Hunters Point and Visitacion Valley have long been considered food deserts by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, with residents having to travel at least a mile to access a grocery store where fresh and healthy food is available.
“This is a matter of social justice,” said Supervisor Malia Cohen. “Everyone – no matter what neighborhood or part of the City they live in – should have the ability to access healthy and fresh foods. We need to be creative about the ways we provide this access. This new expansion is a critical part of my ongoing efforts and initiatives to increase healthy food access to the southeast neighborhoods.”
“We’re thrilled to be able to expand our presence to San Francisco food deserts and meet the strong appeals for Instacart from the community,” said Heather Wake, Instacart’s San Francisco General Manager. “We look forward to serving the people of Hunters Point and Visitacion Valley and giving them access to quality groceries on-demand.”
“The Southeast Food Access Coalition has been working to increase access to healthy food for Bayview residents since 2007 and is pleased that all SF residents will now be able to access fresh produce through Instagram. This supports our efforts, and we look forward to further expand healthy food access,” said Jacob Moody, co-chair of the Southeast Food Access Coalition.
Chipotle Mexican Grill Opening at Geary and Masonic in Mid-July, Allowing the Great Middle of SF to Live MasMonday, May 4th, 2015
Mid-July is the official anticipated opening date for the new Chipotle located around back of the City Target Mall at 2675 Geary atop Mervyn’s Heights.
As you can see, Chips has firm beachheads in the northeast and southwest, and now Food With Integrity is invading the Great Middle of Frisco:
This one’s a done deal, and who knows when another “grass-roots” effort will spring up with locals demanding a Chipotle for their neighborhood, as with CastroRestaurant@chipotle.
“BURRITOFICATION IN PROGRESS” – Chipotle Chain Store Comes to Mervyn’s Heights, 94118 – NOW HIRING at Geary and MasonicMonday, April 6th, 2015
After a giant Fail Whale landed upon the efforts to bring a Chipotle Mexican Grill to the masses at Church and Market a few years back, the purveyors of America’s Favorite Mission-style Burrito set about making things work up at 2675 Geary.
And lo, here it is:
Soon enough, everybody living on the wrong side of Divis will be able to Live Más and Think Outside The Bun…
Clement Street on a Clement Day: Home of the Inner Richmond Pocket Farmer’s Market – Sunday Sunday SundaysFriday, March 6th, 2015
It’s a little small, huh, on a dreaded sunny day, of Winter 2015.
But the people who like it like it, certainly.
“Agricultural Institute of Marin is partnering with the Clement Street Merchants Association to bring the Inner Richmond San Francisco’s newest farmers market! Join us every Sunday from 9am to 2pm, on Clement Street between 2nd and 4th Avenues, year-round…”
If I were the Super Pretzel pushcart people on Market at the cable car turnaround, I’d push these carts somewhere else before the lengthy loading and unloading process:
But these people don’t care – on they go with lifting and the lowering, on they go as westbound traffic backs up behind them…
Co-opting The Mission Burrito sure takes a long time, huh?
Artist’s conception of what the mighty sign on Masonic will look like, sooner or later:
Appears as if Panera Bread will win the race to further chainify the Western Addition…
And it looks like not a single soul in the world will raise a voice against the Chipotle chain coming to 2675 Geary.
