Divisadero, as you surely know, is on the rise. We first learned about Wine Kitchen (507 Divisadero) last May, and now sources tell us they’re readying for a grand opening Friday, and will be softly open starting tonight. It’s not just a wine bar, mind you, as the “kitchen” part of the name should suggest. Co-chef-owners Greg Faucette and Jason Limburg have, between them, worked on the line at Commonwealth, Bar Tartine, Contigo, Per Se, and Spruce, and the small-plates menu promises to be far more interesting than just cheese and charcuterie. (We’re waiting to get a peek at the menu soon, but some example dishes we had earlier were fried gnocchi with short ribs and horseradish; and sardine escabeche with grilled bread, black garlic aioli, and arugula.) Stay tuned for photos, and more about the food and international wine list. [Grub Street]
