Chef Vahit Besir Returns to San Francisco Next Week

Melanie Wong | Aug 3, 201101:04 AM     18

Get ready for the next chapter in the Chef Vahit Besir story . . . he’s opening a new place in San Francisco next week. No name yet, although he’s considering Istanbul Grill. No phone number either, the address coordinates are Geary and Jones. We had a bad connection so I couldn’t catch every detail. At first I thought he was moving back into his old place. But he said the owner of Salama Halal Meat owns his new space, so it must be a different address.

I’m away from the City for 10 days or I’d head over there myself to see what’s happening. Hope some of his chowhound fans can fill us in on the details.
