Evey year I start a spreadsheet for new restaurant starts in San Francisco (and get bored with it around March). 2017 is starting off great for ethnic foods, with SF gaining Portuguese, Puerto Rican, Nicaraguan and Korean BBQ restaurants. We’ve also added to our stable of Cantonese restaurants, Taiwanese Boba/Dessert places and (sigh) another Poke Bar.
Here is the list so far with approximate start dates. For more info, all have Yelp listings at the least.
