Spanish Fly?

Is Spanish Fly on Geary still open? Is it worth a visit?

      Oddly enough I just came across that info in a SF gate link for A Sabellas I posted in another topic ... scroll down

      "After the ill-fated Spanish Fly (3300 Geary Blvd., at Parker) closed in the Richmond District in May, the space - which once housed the original Straits Cafe from Chris Yeo - has remained shuttered all summer.

      Now, telltale signs of life are imminent, due to Khai Duong, executive chef of Ana Mandara. If all goes well, he'll open Pot de Pho at the end of next month, focusing on - what else? - the traditional Vietnamese noodle soup.

      "The menu will be very limited," says Duong, with only about 10 items. He'll make his own noodles, and will use organic ingredients wherever possible."

        I like ultra-specialists such as this sounds, and wish 'em luck.

          Pot de Pho is open. Hope somone starts a new topic about it.

          Great multilingual pun in the name, too.
