A post on Craigslist reveals that barbecue-style food may be on its way back to the Castro. The post, New Restaurant – Need Consultant Chef, posted in the Food/Beverage/Hospitality jobs section of Craigslist for the Castro area is looking for a consultant chef to help create a menu for a new “SUMMER BACKYARD BBQ” style restaurant. The post has a deluge of photos lifted from The GQ Guide to Backyard Barbecues in case the jobseeker is wondering what kind of scene the new owners are hoping to recreate at their new restaurant.

New Restaurant Opening: 
We are opening a new restaurant – it will be inspired by the “SUMMER BACKYARD BBQ”.
Imagine the fun times you had drinking, eating at your friend’s bbq.

We want to bring that to the Castro: it will be fun, casual, friendly, approachable yet adventurous with bbq’d dishes – salads, meats, fish, grilled fruits, etc.

Food will be imaginative, interesting, cute and KICK ass.

Drinks will be refreshing, wild, creative and AWESOME.

Vibe will be laid back – hey it’s a bbq!
Central theme to the food / drinks will be:
- simple
- good ingredients
- deconstructed
- natural

Consultant Chef 

Experience opening new restaurants
Experience creating new menus
Will need to do a tasting for the owners

Create menu
Train employees
Recipe book
Occasional follow up
Possible seasonal return to update menu

There was some interior refinishing activity a couple of weeks ago at the old Blue Restaurant location (2337 Market Street) so perhaps we’ll see the new restaurant move in there? We’re thinking this place may already have a space that is larger than Blue and perhaps with a back patio area.

We’ll let you know when we hear more!

    Maybe the former Home location or Patio?
    From the ad it sounds like some guys with money and an idea but no experience. We saw how that worked out for Jake’s, hopefully they won’t make the same mistakes.

    Let’s hope it’s better than the (awful) Dancing Pig. (Yes, I went there more than once – three times to be exact – and the food was just not good.)
