Chowhounds rejoice!! Saturday evening I tooled down to the Tenderloin to satisfy my craving for Naan & Curry's most excellent Chicken Tikka. I was thrilled to find a parking spot on my second go-around, and hurried in to feed the beast.
Imagine my delight upon seeing a banner on the wall announcing "Grand Opening - 355 Jackson". Turns out it's just off Columbus, less than three blocks from my office. I headed down there just minutes ago to see the status of the place. The ever-working owner was there covered in sawdust, and advised that they're planning to open on Wednesday 3/13 with the same menu they serve in the Tenderloin.
A Wednesday opening seems pretty optimistic given the state of the construction, but the place looks like it'll be a bit brighter and cheerier than it's cousin on O'Farrell. Not that I pay much attention to the decor when I'm busy moaning with pleasure over the food. I await the opening with bated breath and will no doubt be lunching on Indian food daily for the next few weeks.
