Today is opening day for Nopalito's second offshoot at Ninth and Lincoln in the Sunset, in what was formerly Bistro 9. They're now going to be serving lunch and dinner daily out of both locations, with a similar menu of well-crafted, several-steps-above-a-taqueria Mexican fare, including their locally famous carnitas. Also, there's a spacious patio in back which, while not open now, is going to be a welcome addition for al fresco dining when it opens which may not be until early next year.
Check out our slideshow, or drop in for dinner if you're in the 'hood. And as at the other location, there are no reservations, but you can call ahead to find out what the wait is and get your name put on the list.
Nopalito 2 - 1224 Ninth Avenue, at Lincoln - 415-233-9966 - Open 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
