Radio Africa Kitchen Opening
Pleased to attend today's ribbon cutting at Radio Africa Kitchen at 4800 Third St. Mayor Ed Lee, Supervisor Cohen, and others joined a diverse group of neighbors in opening this exciting new restaurant. Chef Eskender Aseged prepared three wonderful dishes for us to try, and I can tell you, this man knows how to cook.
As Supervisor Cohen said during her remarks, the addition of RAK to the Third Street Corridor continues to highlight the diversity in the Bayview neighborhood. I have to echo the remarks of Al Norman of the Bayview Merchant's Association, too, in saying that we are all working toward the day when people come to shop, eat, work and play in the Bayview, enjoying an experience that is as safe and vibrant as one on Union St. It was good to hear Mayor Lee reinforce the city's commitment to the corridor and to the town center around Mendell Plaza.
Radio Africa Kitchen, at 4800 Third St at Oakdale, opens officially on Wednesday for dinner only, with lunch service starting soon.
