With an emphasis on open-fired, grilled, smoked, rotisserie, and hearth-baked vegetable and meat preparation, the team behind the wildly successful AQ, Chef Mark Liberman and Owner Matt Semmelhack, will open TBD in SoMa the white-hot MidMarket area this fall.

The new place can be found at 1077 Mission, just two doors down from AQ. (Why not?)

"The city of San Francisco and specifically this neighborhood really embraced AQ when we opened in 2011," AQ and TBD Owner Matt Semmelhack says. "We are excited to introduce a new dining destination and a casual, yet elevated concept to this block of Mission Street, adding to the changing landscape of this community."

The menu will boast feature chapters like "Raw" (e.g., escarole heart, grape and tarragon with aged goat cheddar), "Grill + Plancha" (artichoke and dungeness crab with spiced rhubarb and sea urchin), “Smoked” (fluke crudo with sunchokes and buttermilk), "On the Hearth" (rustic duck cassoulet), and "Sweet" (S’mores with homemade marshmallows).
