Charles Phan’s South at SFJAZZ Opens Monday; Berkeley’s Caffe Venezia Closing After 33 Years


Hayes Valley: Charles Phan’s South at SFJAZZ, the café/concession at the new music venue that opens Monday, January 21, now has a menu. It’s snacky and has a southern bent, with things like andouille and fried alligator, which may give a hint of what he has planned for Hard Water at Pier 3, also due to open soon. [Eater]
Berkeley: Berkeleyside broke the news yesterday that 33-year-old Caffe Venezia is closing. [Berkeleyside]
Also, Sliver Pizzeria is now open at 2132 Center Street, and besides making pizza they want to end human trafficking. Ah, Berkeley. [Berkeleyside]
Sausalito: Poggio is once again doing its Monday through Wednesday, wintertime bollito misto special. It comes served from a cart, and it’s quite delicious. [Tablehopper]
