Today Grub Street gathers some news regarding the growing empire of restaurateur Roxanne Sotano, who’ll soon be opening Sutter Pub at 700 Sutter in the space formerly occupied by Down-Under-themed gift shop, Australia Fair. Ms. Sotano currently owns Persimmon Café (582 Sutter), Roxanne Café (570 Powell), El Sotano (550 Powell), and recently bought a controlling stake in Cesario’s (601 Sutter).

Ms. Sotano could not yet be reached for details, but if we had to guess we’re probably looking at a gastro-pub with an emphasis on the pub. We have no idea if a kitchen is even a possibility in the retail space, so we’ll have to let you know more as we learn it.
