Chow Barolo, Hola Puerto 27
One up, one down: Pacifica's Barolo (404 San Pedro Ave.) has shut its doors so that, as executive chef Jason Yeafoli says, they can focus their efforts on their nearby restaurant, Moonraker - the best Bay Area restaurant named after a James Bond film.
Not far away, San Francisco restaurateur Jose Calvo-Perez (Fresca, Pasion) will open Puerto 27 in the Pacifica Beach Hotel (525 Crespi Drive). It will be a 140-seat Peruvian restaurant and Pisco bar; there will also be a golden Inca head sculpture involved, because why not.
