Interested in sampling the latest restaurants and retailers to open in the Western Addition? Newcomers to this high-profile San Francisco neighborhood include a reborn Chinese eatery, a gift shop specializing in stationery and an upscale sweater boutique. Read on for details.
500 Haight St.
YH-Beijing is a Chinese spot. As previously reported on Hoodline, the eatery is in a space that formerly housed Wonderland, also a Chinese restaurant.
Chef specials at the new spot include chongquing chili chicken, songshu fish fillet, braised oxtail stew and more. Other offerings include rice and noodle dishes, Beijing dim sum, dumplings and boa.
With a four-star Yelp rating out of 22 reviews, YH-Beijing has been getting positive attention.
Yelper SJ L. noted, "Nice decor and ambiance. I was a bit skeptical when I saw we were the only Chinese customers there at first, but the menu — though simple — [was] quite interesting."
And Curtis T. wrote, "Don't let the name fool you ... it's Wonderland in a new, upgraded disguise. The general's chicken, broccoli beef and pork fried rice were exactly the same as I remember them. So happy they're back in biz."
YH-Beijing is open from 11 a.m.–3 p.m. and 4:30–9:30 p.m. on weekdays and 11 a.m.–9:30 p.m. on weekends.
2413 California St.
Post Script is a gift shop offering cards, stationery and more.
On the store's website, owner Chandler Tang describes her enterprise as a lifestyle store dedicated to objects that "inspire surprise and delight — much like a p.s. note under a good letter." To that end, the shop stocks 50 curated brands across stationery, home goods and accessories lines from Hay, Areaware, Poketo, Baleen Jewelry and others.
With a five-star rating out of nine reviews on Yelp, Post Script is off to a strong start.
Yelper Ja Young Y., who reviewed the shop on Dec. 11, wrote, "I went in thinking I'll get a card or two, but omg this shop is heaven for girls like me! They had planners, pens, cards, art, water bottles — you name it and you'll find the perfect gift."
Tien Teena N. wrote, "Honestly, what a cute little gift shop. I am such a sucker for thoughtfully curated gift shops and this is exactly that!"
Post Script is open from 11 a.m.–7 p.m. on Tuesday–Sunday. (It's closed on Monday.)
2053 Fillmore St.
Then there's Garin, a cashmere-centric women's and men's clothing spot.
The upscale boutique specializes in sweaters made of high-quality raw cashmere from Mongolia that are crafted in Italy. The result, the shop's site says, is "an everlasting cashmere sweater at an intelligent price [that reflects] our mission to support conscious consumerism, while keeping it cool and classic."
Garin has been well-received thus far with a current rating of 4.5 stars out of three reviews on Yelp.
Andrea H. noted, "What's more SF-Pac Heights than a cashmere boutique that also sells CBD? Garin offers absolutely lovely cashmere goods. Furthermore, awesome CBD gift options are available. I love the concept, just bear in mind that the pricing is a little up there. This, however, makes sense since it's in the luxury goods space."
Yelper Nikki S. wrote, "Amazing store. They provide an odd combination of cashmere sweaters and CBD products but it's so cool and it totally works."
Garin is open from 11 a.m.–7 p.m. daily.
