Chef William Lue opens another Burmese eatery, Pacheco Bistro, tomorrow, 12/1. He acquired the venue, the former Smokehouse 10, from his friend, Pitmaster Dave Tendick.
The plan is to start small and simple with 20 seats, serving lunch from Noon to 2pm. Dishes will be $7, and the offering will be similar to what's served at Oakland's Grocery Cafe. He wants to get a sense of the neighborhood before increasing seating, hours or the menu.
Chef Lue said the kitchen has plenty of capacity to be a commissary for catering gigs. Early next year, he plans to make use of it to revive his food truck to serve the nearby refinery.
Please report in when you have a chance to try it.
