Venezuelan fast-casual joint Pica Pica Maize Kitchen, which began life at the Oxbow Public Market in Napa and opened a second location at 15th and Valencia last year, will be bringing their arepas to the Castro. As the Chron’s Inside Scoop column reports, they’re moving into a two-story space behind the Chevron station at 3970 17th Street, near Market. Look for them to open in early September. [Chron]
