China Live, the ambitious, sprawling culinary project on Broadway, finally has an official opening date – Feb. 24.
The China Live team told Inside Scoop the complex will only be open for dinner service that day starting at 5 p.m.
The 30,000-square-foot China Live space is going to have a casual Chinese restaurant called Market Restaurant & Bar, an Asian tea concept called Oolong Cafe, and a fine-dining concept called Eight Tables with a seasonal tasting menu.
There’s also going to be bar space, a retail area, and a lounge space.
China SF is an economic initiative from the city that focuses on job creation and business development in San Francisco.
George Chen, who founded the project with his wife Cindy Wong-Chen, will serve as the executive chef at Eight Tables. Chi-Feng Lin (Executive Director Tawain Chefs Association) has the role of Chef de Cuisine.
Joey Altman (Wild Hare, Food Network) will be over culinary operations, and Duggan McDonnell (Cantina) is the beverage director. – San Francisco Chronicle (01.26.17)
