Mr. Crave Bistro on Its Way In the 'Loin

The former Jimmie.

Via Craigslist today we find that a new bistro/café called Mr. Crave is hiring and getting ready to open at 655 Ellis Street (at Larkin), at the base of the Cova Hotel. Details are scarce, but they promise "modern, sustainable and unique meals for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and happy hour." Also: small plates. The space was previously the odd, Asian-Italian spot called Jimmie, which is now closed. We'll let you know, should be in the neighborhood, when it has an opening date.
