The team behind Piccino has announced a new project, called Noon All Day, to be located at 690 Indiana Street. Owners Margherita Stewart Sagan and Sher Rogat, along with director of operations Kerry Glancy, plan to open the casual restaurant and coffee bar this summer, Tablehopper reports.
The 1,100-square-foot space is located in a new development, adjacent to Esprit Park and the Dogpatch Arts Plaza (currently under construction). It will have a full kitchen, and seating for about 65. A small menu from Piccino’s opening chef Carlo Espina will offer up to eight items influenced by a variety of cultures, like a curry clay pot dish, or fried rice. And they’re working on some kind of meatball sandwich using Piccino’s very excellent meatballs. Beer and wine will be available, with potential for retail sales (if the permit goes through).
It will be an all-day counter service affair from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., offering coffee and pastries in the morning, and heartier options throughout the day. Tablehopper also reports that there will be a concierge at the entrance to help guests navigate; eventually an app will be available for ordering ahead, or for delivery. Grab-and-go food will also be available, a bonus for employees and visitors at the nearby UCSF Hospital and neighborhood folks looking for lunch.
