Look for one of the city’s landmark restaurants to be back in business sometime this week. Julius’ Castle has been closed for renovations since late August, but according to the restaurant itself (and ZagatBuzz) the North Beach mainstay will reopen tomorrow (May 23rd) at 5pm.
Julius’ Castle, originally opened in 1922, will continue to serve Italian-French classics flanked by one of the best–if not the best–panoramic views in the city. Scott Hammonds is the executive chef and will concentrate on old-school dishes like lobster Thermidor and coquilles Saint-Jacques. Send preliminary reports our way if you have them.
