The 11 most highly anticipated Bay Area restaurant openings fall/winter 2021

The Mercury News released their "11 Most Highly Anticipated Bay Area Restaurant Openings for Fall/Winter 2021, and #Roux40 in Temescal tops the list!

"When it opens this fall inside the former Hog’s Apothecary, Roux40 will be run entirely by Black women and women of color. The dining room will have an Afro-centric vibe showcasing family, art and ’90s R&B. And the menu will highlight Black heritage dishes with a farm-to-table sensibility." 😍

Among the restaurants readying for their debut: a Black heritage game changer to a fried chicken temple, a swanky brasserie and haute spots from hot shot chefs Michael Mina and Traci des Jardin.

Have you seen the new Rapid Flashing Beacons along Telegraph?⁠

HSIP Pedestrian/Bike Improvement Project: The street at Claremont & Vicente Way has been ground down and repaved to make the transition from the sidewalk to the street ADA compliant. The contractor installed the final striping the week of August 17th to delineate the new street design of a bike lane and one car travel lane in each direction, and a center turn lane. The contractor is currently installing poles and signage, as well as the above-ground electrical for the RRFBs (rectangular rapid flashing beacons) on Shattuck at 49th, 51st, 59th and 61st to complete the enhanced safety measure and high visibility crosswalks at those locations.
The City’s contractor finished the concrete and underground electrical work for the Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFB) on Telegraph Ave at 41st, 43rd, and 44th. The concrete islands on Telegraph at 43rd and 44th have been completed as well. Work is ongoing to install the poles, signage, and above-ground electrical work at those locations. All the concrete work for the raised plaza area at 45th and Shattuck Ave has been completed, and work is ongoing to finish installing the new signals at the 45th and Telegraph intersection.

General information

In 2004, the area’s property owners voted overwhelmingly to assess themselves an annual fee that goes towards maintaining and improving the streetscape, supporting businesses, and marketing Telegraph Avenue starting from 40th to 66th Street, including small portions of Shattuck Ave, 51st , and Claremont. We encourage property owners, merchants and residents to join our committees: Design, Economic Development, Promotion, & Security, dedicated to the vibrancy of Temescal and upper Telegraph. Ideas developed in these committees become the action plans for the Board of Directors.
