AQ to Open New, Fire-Driven Restaurant Next Door


It turns out AQ's other expansion project is right next door, or two doors down, from the existing restaurant. We broke the news of AQ's expansion plans in October, and later learned that one of their two upcoming projects is the new concession at ODC Theater in the Mission. Now the Scoop confirms the second venture, which is still nameless and about which details are few, will be located in a 2,000-square-foot space at 1077 Mission. Chef Mark Liberman wants to cook only by fire, but that's all he's saying for now about the menu and concept. Look for this baby AQ to open in the second half of 2013. [Scoop]
