POLK GULCH—A few weeks ago, news came out that the Zeki's folks were taking over the shuttered O'Reilly's Holy Grail and calling it Midpoint. Now, as the space gets a facelift from its medieval look, details continue to trickle in. Fernando Plazola has been hired as the executive chef; Plazola is the chef/owner of Ward Street Cafe in Larkspur (its Chron review here), and before that, he was at Postrio. As for that rumored late night dining: "[the] main goal is to serve the neighborhood so if there is a demand for dining until 1 or 1:30 every night, [we'll] make that happen." Currently, mid to late November is the tentative aim.
