I have been trying for months (unsuccessfully) to get details from a contact at Pa’ina, the new Hawaiian restaurant and lounge opening in the former Sundance Kitchen space in Japantown. Well, now it’s open, according to this post on Eater, which mentions a “lengthy menu of Asian fusion and Hawaiian cuisine concocted with the help of chef Glenn Kimura.” Pics on Yelp reveal Spam musubi, spicy tuna poke, and Kalua pig cheese fries. Sounds like the place was totally reformatted to make room for a stage since there will be live music as well.
1865 Post St. at Fillmore, 415-829-2642.
The Upper Haight has a new (and spacious) café called Flywheel Roastery next to Whole Foods. SFoodie mentions Flywheel will be roasting their own beans on site soon, and there are also housemade baked goods. Uppercasing mentions: “The back of the building, under the loft, will have seating, and they’ll also have a patio out back. In the meantime, there are plenty of benches and tables, as well as some chairs on the sidewalk out front, for optimal Golden Gate Park people-watching.”
670 Stanyan St. at Haight.
