We finally have an update for you regarding Kitchen Story, which we broke the news about last month. The team behind the new restaurant happen to be the same people, it turns out, behind Sweet Maple and the recently open Blackwood in the Marina, Steven and Ji Yeon Choi. They are still remodeling and readying to open in the former Tangerine space at 16th and Sanchez, and the concept is "California cuisine" with a few Asian twists, and food served all day, much like at Blackwood. There will be a soft-opening week starting November 19, with a grand opening scheduled for November 26 (dates may still be subject to change with last-minute inspections, etc.). We have both the daytime and dinner menus for you to peruse below.

We're especially excited for the bulgogi burger, and the Castro Millionaire panini with their famed (and Food Network-approved) Millionaire's Bacon and aged Vermont cheddar. That Millionaire's Bacon which is bacon dusted with brown sugar, black pepper, and cayenne before baking actually sneaks its way into a bunch of dishes on the menu, including a burger, a scallop-noodle dish, and on its own with asparagus.
