Here is a tentative final list of openings of 26 restaurants, cafes and bars in San Francisco in January, pending straggler reviews. Google or search Yelp for location, details, etc.
It was a good month for ethnic restaurants, with SF getting its first Portuguese Restaurant, a rare Puerto Rican addition, and new Cajun, Chinese, Greek, Indo-Paki, Italian, Japanese (sushi), Korean (2), Nicaraguan and Vietnamese options. We also got our first “American Halal” (The Halal Guys) and the obligatory bubble tea, Asian Dessert and Poke joints. New coffee bars (including a robot barista) and ice cream/gelato places yes, but amazingly no new ramen, burger or pizza specialists.
