The latest intel on culinary news in San Francisco features two new eateries opening for business and a juice shop expected to open in the near future.
SoMa: Native Juice Co.
163 2nd Street (at Natoma Street)
We begin this week's edition in SoMa with a tip from Al M. on Native Juice Co.'s new outpost at 163 2nd Street. The business—which took over the empty space that used to house Tava Kitchen—specializes in smoothies, juices and healthy meal options like Asian chicken salad, avocado toast, soba noodles and many more.
When Al walked by last week, he said there was some construction and renovation going on inside the space, but didn't get any other information from the construction workers on site.
We don't know exactly when the new location will be open, but in the meantime, visit its original store at 168 Sutter Street or check out its offerings at the Oakland and San Rafael farmers' markets.
Financial District: Little Bite
220 Bush Street
Over in the Financial District, Al reported that Little Bite opened its second location at 220 Bush Street. Its original outpost opened for business six years ago in Cow Hollow at 1796 Union Street.
"Most of the offerings are the same," said Al, "except this location doesn't weigh your food, it's by the scoop."
At the Bush Street location, customers can expect to find options including soup, salad, vegetarian plates, tuna poke, turkey lasagna and many more for less than $12 a dish.
There are also green smoothies, healthy juices, coffee and tea to go along with a meal. Check out the full menu here.
The new store is open Monday to Friday, 11am-3pm, and closed on the weekends.
South Beach: Fistful of Tacos
201 Harrison Street
Finally, out in South Beach, Al alerted us to a new restaurant opening at 201 Harrison Street, located next door to Gabby Cafe, a mini grocery store on the corner of Harrison and Main streets.
Fistful of Tacos is a new fast-casual eatery with no available seating. However, it does offer a menu that features items for less than $10 each.
"There's no exotic protein, just your basic chicken, pork and beef," said Al. "The burrito was tasty and made perfectly with a nice balance of meat to fixings ratio."
Expect to find options including tacos, burritos, quesadillas and burritos with your choice of protein and add-ons.
Business hours are Monday to Friday, 10:30am-8pm, and Saturday, 11am-6:30pm, though hours may vary.
