Steven and Ji Yeon Choi — successful owners of a breakfast-place mini-empire whose restaurants include Sweet Maple (2101 Sutter), Fred’s Place in Sausalito, and the Taylor Street Coffee Shop — have just laid claim to the Chilayo space at 2150 Chestnut Street. The former Chilayo, which closed in March, is a fairly large space with its own built-in fireplace. Also take note that Sweet Maple is getting featured on Destination America, which is the rebranded network formerly known as Discovery’s Planet Green — a crew was just filming there last month for a new show called the United States of Food. [Grub Street] Update: The Scoop says it’s going to be an “American-Thai fusion place” called Blackwood.
