Yo's, GFC, Muddy's open

Windy | Mar 12, 200407:11 PM     3

Lots of new awnings near the intersection of 29th and Mission.

Yo's Sushi is finally opening in its new location (across from the Safeway on Mission) this Monday. They'll be serving dinner M-Saturday. The space has definitely been spruced up since Cafe Abo closed (the yoda collectibles have been replaced by tasteful watercolors). For the moment it will be all raw fish, no grilling or tempura, same prices ($3-5 for nigiri) as in the previous incarnation. 10 seats at the bar and 5 small tables.

Good Frikin Chicken (GFC) is poised to open any day on the corner of 29th and Mission. Al's Cafe must be relieved the construction on that block is finished.There's a long low bar with 15 seats and a very limited menu: half a chicken or a whole chicken ($8.95) with optional sides for another $3. I think it will be rotisserie. Not sure who their target is: these are reasonable dine in prices, not cheap for take out. But the proof will definitely be in the chicken.

On the other end of the same new building (29th & Tiffany) is an inviting branch of Muddy Water's coffeehouse. No one inside, but a great looking selection of desserts and late hours. Teabags, though, unlike the folks at...

Cup O Java on Guerrero & 28th, which has been open for a few months, is also open until 8 on weeknights, later than Martha's or the cafe on Dolores that's never open when I walk by.

All good choices en route to standing in line at Mitchell's. Pear sorbet is back this week.
