Joanna Karlinsky Signs On at Noir Lounge


Yesterday we mentioned that Noir Lounge was making its soft-opening debut this week in Hayes Valley, and while that remains true, there’s been a last-minute chef shuffle as they made it open. Chef Joanna Karlinsky, formerly of Meeting House and more recently of her Sweet Jo’s Chili and Biscuits pop-up, has signed on to craft the film-themed menu for the wine bar/restaurant. There will be chili, naturally, but there will also be, as promised, a selection of flavored sweet and savory popcorns, and cotton candy. [Earlier]
