Article about Waterbar and Epic Roasthouse from an Architectural View
|February 19, 2008||Posted by jamie under Rincon Hill Businesses||
Today’s Chronicle has an article about the two new Rincon Hill neighborhood waterfront restaurants, Waterbar and Epic Roasthouse. Read the article online, if you don’t receive the paper.
I believe these additions, despite the impact on the views of the water from the Folsom/Embarcadero Muni metro platform and the restaurants on the other side of The Embarcadero, are a net positive for the Rincon Hill neighborhood. They provide additional eateries for residents, additional reasons for visitors to wander down past the Ferry Building to our neck of the woods (which may encourage more businesses to open up on the weekends instead of closing until Monday when the work crowd leaves the Rincon Hill offices on Friday afternoon), and help add some safety to Rincon Park with more folks milling around the area later into the evenings. I suspect the food is fabulous too, but I’ll wait for my “Economic Stimulus” check from the Federal Government to confirm those suspicions.
Please do weigh in to the Chronicle’s Comments section – especially if you have a positive view of the restaurants. Rincon Hill’s businesses, like Waterbar and Epic Roasthouse, deserve our support to the extent that they invested in us by locating in our developing neighborhood.
