One local chef who may lay claim to at least being able to get San Franciscans' taste buds salivating just thinking about his food is Ike Shehadeh of Ike's Place.
Shehadeh was in Los Angeles this week meeting with potential investors about the possibility of opening his sandwich shop with the dirty sauce down south.
“I looked at maybe 20 locations,” he told the Bay Citizen. “I got a really good vibe.” He said an Ike’s Place could open there as early as this summer.
Shehadeh says he still wants to keep expansion slow so his restaurant is not labeled a "chain."
