In May, we reported that a new restaurant was moving in to the old Gaslamp Café space, and then in August, Howard Taps debuted in that space — even though its liquor license was still pending — offering Vietnamese fare such as bun and banh mi and vermicelli bowls. However, owner Andy Nguyen's venture was short lived, and Howard Taps is no more. 

It is now Voodoo Love, a Creole eatery with Chef Tirzah Love and managing partner Eva Morris at the helm. As the Chronicle notes, it's one of only a few restaurants run by black women in San Francisco, and one of a dwindling number offering New Orleans-inspired dishes.

Entrees currently include items such as shrimp and grits, cajun salmon, and buttermilk fried chicken.

For drinks, the restaurant has beer and cider on tap, along with wine, sweet tea, lemonade and Vietnamese coffee.

The eatery is currently in its soft-opening phase, but you can attend its grand opening event on October 5th

Hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.

A few months ago, Papi’s closed its doors after 18 months of business in the Tenderloin. While walking through the neighborhood, Hoodline contributor Carrie Sisto noticed that it recently reopened as Global Cuisine. The restaurant offers items such as sushi, salads, and dishes such as grilled salmon with truffle mash potatoes and asparagus, seafood paella and fish and chips.   

It looks like its website is still under construction, but you can follow them on Facebook for more about its menu items.
