One-time northern Iranian pop-up Komaaj is now a full-fledged brick-and-mortar restaurant at the former home of Good Frikin’ Chicken, and their pomegranate chicken (and sumac beef and smoked salmon belly) are still pretty frikin’ good.
These lovely sidewalk benches are now being declared "unpermitted encroachments" on Mirabel Avenue in Bernal Heights, with the Public Works department now demanding $1,400 permits for benches that have been there as long as 20 years.
The current pop-up restaurant Komaaj has posted signage that they’re taking over the former Good Frikin’ Chicken space at Mission and 29th Streets, so the location’s Middle Eastern food tradition will remain intact.
