Radio Africa & Kitchen gets more press

Wow,  I have never seen so much buzz and press about a single restaurant before.  It's already tough to get a reservation at Radio Africa & Kitchen, at 4800 Third St., and this isn't helping!  Just kidding.  I love to see positive news and reviews for what's becoming a local hot spot for dining.  With a rise in the mid-priced restaurants in the area, including Old Skool Cafe and Limón, I hope there's also a rediscovery of restaurants and businesses that have weathered the storm that construction of the light rail caused.  Hopefully others decide to join those already there, like Auntie April's and Las Isletas, and take a chance on the Third St corridor as a viable place to do business.

Aseged, known for his nomadic African-centric dinners over the last five years, finally has a permanent home, a sparkling new restaurant in San Francisco's redeveloping Bayview district.

Combined with the expected reopening of Moya, which burned down in a SoMa fire last May, the Bay Area's Ethiopian and Eritrean food scene is getting a jolt.

Whether concentrated along Oakland's Telegraph Avenue, with stalwarts such as Addis and Asmara, or scattered about San Francisco from Assab in the Lower Haight to New Eritrea in the Inner Sunset, there's now African food to be found in a variety of settings.

The upscale Sheba Piano Lounge in the lower Fillmore pushed the envelope in 2006 with Ethiopian-inspired cocktails and fusion fare like Drunken Chicken Drumettes glazed in Tequila, berbere and tejj, a honey wine.

Now comes a permanent Radio Africa Kitchen, where Aseged is serving "modern African cuisine" that celebrates the bold flavors he grew up with while spinning them forward.
