Big news for Sixth Street, everyone! That too-gross-to-even-be-charming diner at the corner of Sixth and Market which we reported had shuttered in July is set to become the fourth location of Pearl’s Deluxe Burgers. As the Chron reports, the former Chinese-American-Filipino-Mexican-Italian restaurant is getting a makeover soon thanks to funds from the Central Market Cultural District Loan Fund — a large portion of which will likely be needed to gut and fumigate the place. Pearl’s hopes to be open by March 15, and will join Show Dogs across the street in bringing more bougie, slow-fast food to the neighborhood.
