CBS SF: SF Chinatown could get major facelift

posted by Randall

San Francisco ChinatownSan Francisco’s Chinatown could become foodie heaven lined with gourmet Chinese restaurants with streets decorated with life-sized art on the street, reports CBS SF (Photo by jakubkadlec).

Those are just some of the ideas being discussed by a committee of young residents and business people organized by business owner Betty Louie.

The bottom line, says the committee, is that Chinatown is looking worn and dumpy and something must be done to update it.

“My thought is to showcase what farmers are doing here now and also cleaning up a lot of food,” said up and coming chef Brandon Jew. ” A lot of it is getting rid of imported stuff from China and just make it here.”

Restauranteur George Chen is set to turn a 20,000 square foot property on Broadway into a food marketplace and destination restaurant.

    RE: SF Chinatown could get major facelift: At first glance, they should get the consent of the property owners, not galloping ahead like NYC Chinatown BID that forced the property owners into forking over $5,000 in addition tax monies for “cleaner streets” which don’t look any cleaner than before. There are many closed businesses because the property owners could not pass on the addition taxes to their commerical tenants.
