Steven and Ji Yeon Choi successful owners of a breakfast-place mini-empire whose restaurants include Sweet Maple (2101 Sutter), Fred's Place in Sausalito, and the Taylor Street Coffee Shop have just laid claim to the Chilayo space at 2150 Chestnut Street. The former Chilayo, which closed in March, is a fairly large space with its own built-in fireplace. Also take note that Sweet Maple is getting featured on Destination America, which is the rebranded network formerly known as Discovery's Planet Green a crew was just filming there last month for a new show called the United States of Food. [Grub Street] Update: The Scoop says it's going to be an "American-Thai fusion place" called Blackwood.
