New Restaurant at 630 G a Big Old North Improvement (09)

I am delighted to see significant new investment in our Old North G Street shopping strip in the form of a new  restaurant at 630 G called Monticello Seasonal Cuisine.
This restaurant is not simply a new effort installed in an old set-up. The space was gutted and redone. It is a fresh start. KUDOS!

Monticello comes at a time when four other units in that G Street “strip” building are empty. So, the owners’ optimism is especially impressive.

As a classic San Francisco Chronicle columnist liked to declare about new places: “Let’s give them a vote of confidence”--which means go eat there. Based on a Saturday brunch, I would say the food is really good.
