Charles Phan expansion to Pacific Heights now under way

Slanted Door chef-owner Charles Phan is opening a third Out the Door.

He bought a building in Pacific Heights where he is working on a 3,000 square foot restaurant. When I talked to him on the phone just now he was in the middle of demolition.

I have the address and more on the food concept in an update on the Business Times website today (free link).

I was going to mark this "scoop" but I just Googled and found 7x7 posted something to their website March 1.

7x7 people: When you're not busy ogling the owners of District, consider putting this sort of stuff -- you know, "news" -- on your blog. That and an RSS feed.

UPDATE: OK, I just did some more Googling, and can proudly say that other than tablehopper, Chowhound, 7x7 and the Zoning Board, I was totally first with the story. (So glad I didn't use the "scoop" tag. So very glad.)

Well, at least we know construction has started.

This post has been corrected from its original form.

I heard about this venture last spring, and it's great to know that he's finally going into action (now that I've moved out of the neighborhood...). Thanks for the update.

Love the blog -- one thing though, isn't it the third Out the Door? There's one at the Ferry Plaza, too (the original).

Anon, good point. It's the second *standalone* Out the Door but the third total. The first of course being run out of Slanted Door in the Ferry Building as you point out.

Catherine, glad you got *something* out of it, given it's somewhat old news. I read your posts, by the way. Same for you, madeater (cookiecrumb). Best food website name ever.

PS OK so the original is sorta standalone. I've been to Slanted Door and I'm in the Ferry Building pretty much weekly, how have I never been to Out the Door? I've even written about it, the one in the Ferry Building.
