The noted restauranteurs from Absinthe group will bring their next offering to an attention-starved corner of SoMa sometime in the next year, Inside Scoop reports. The group, which currently owns Absinthe, Arlequin Cafe and Boxing Room in hayes Valley as well as Comstock Saloon on the FiDi-fringe of North Beach, will be the group's biggest restaurant yet and will occupy a sizable footprint in the up-and-coming 888 Brannan building.

The building at Eighth and Brannan Streets was built nearly a century ago as a battery factory, but has undergone renovations in the past few years to attract tech offices like AirBnB's funky digs.

The currently unnamed Absinthe spot will occupy 5,400 square feet of high-ceilinged, former factory space on the ground floor. Although important details are still being worked out (like a chef and a concept), Absinthe Group proprietor Bill Russell-Shapiro tells the Scoop that there will be a full bar, sidewalk seating outside, private dining areas, valet parking and bike storage for dinner guests. Although the group was reportedly looking to help turn around mid-Market Street with a restaurant there, Russell-Shapiro hopes the SoMa spot will "help the neighborhood as it evolves." The San Francisco Gift Center and Jewelry Mart, which saw a violent shootout back in July also calls the building home.

Anyhow, expect the restaurant's name to reflect the building's battery-making history, which all makes sense somehow, because where would tech be without batteries?
