Tartine 9th Avenue, sort of a hybrid bakery-cafe that's not quite as elaborate as the Manufactory but still has full table service, is prepping for a mid-July opening.
Eater first caught word of Tartine's lease on the Inner Sunset space at 1226 Ninth Avenue — a former roofing shop next door to Nopalito and steps from the entrance to Golden Gate Park — a full year ago. And now, after getting approval for a "limited restaurant," renovating, and applying for a conditional use permit to sell alcohol, we're nearing an opening for the new offshoot — the company's fourth locally, including the original 18th Street flagship, the Manufactory, and an outpost at SFO, and fifth if you count the Los Angeles Manufactory which opened in January.
As Eater reports today, the chef at the new location will be Susannah Ok, who spent the last six years as executive chef at The Battery downtown. Tartine 9th Avenue will open with full breakfast, lunch, and weekend brunch menus, with dinner to follow later.
A to-go case will feature sandwiches and salads — as well as pastry and other baked goods, presumably — for easy park picnic-making. There will also be beer and wine, Coffee Manufactory cold brew, and house-made kombucha.
Look for Tartine 9th Avenue to debut on or around July 15.
