Scheduled to open a couple weeks ago was Sake San (626 Clement Street at 7th), a new yakitori and sushi (and possibly ramen) spot morphing out of what was Volar Karaoke. The story is that there will still be three karaoke rooms, but they’re adding a 25-seat bar and will now serve food along with sake and soju. Eater had a rendering and a few details last month, and we’ve so far been unable to reach the owners, though the liquor license (under the name “Volar Ramen Lounge”) just came through this week, so the opening is likely imminent. Please tip us off if you’re in the Richmond and you see that new sign up. [Eater]
