Bacon Bacon restaurant in San Francisco will reopen in the Mission District while the fate of its original location is decided.
The bacon smell is coming to the Mission -- where, perhaps thankfully, it's already a part of the social fabric.
Bacon Bacon, the Frederick Street pig eatery whose battle with neighbors in the Upper Haight made national news, is opening a second location in the Mission District, according to the San Francisco Examiner.
Bacon Bacon will begin offering breakfast sandwiches and other offerings that include cured pork products at Brick and Mortar, a Mission Street music venue, the newspaper reported.
The old Frederick Street location is closed for now, thanks to dispute with neighbors over the smell of fried bacon. But it may reopen, depending on how a July hearing at the city's Planning Commission goes -- and depending on how a standoff between restaurant owner Jim Angelus and smell-tired neighbors go.
Angelus has offered to install a filtration system on the Frederick Street store if neighbors drop their complaint against the restaraunt first; neighbors won't drop the complaint unless the filtration system is installed first.
"Each side is still hesitant to make the first move," the newspaper reported.
But in the meantime, bacon will fry on in the Mission District. Bacon-wrapped hotdogs, you have some competition.
