Tadich is on fire is reporting that Tadich Grill has a fire and is closed. Perbacco, next door is still open. Anyone near there?

      SF.Eater is now saying Tadich may reopen tomorrow--if true, can't have been much of a fire.

      1. re: bobpantzer

        SFGate estimated $20,000 in damage. That's probably one stove.

          $20,000 is probably mostly cleaning up the smoke and water damage.

          ETA: New estimate is $160,000 -- apparently they tore out part of the kitchen ceiling fighting the fire.

    2. It is true. I work in the building next door. It actually looked like our building (230 Cal) was on fire b/c of the way Tadich vents, but the SFFD assures me it is Tadich (240 Cal).

      1. Just to update, they will be open tommorrow.

          Just to confirm: I walked by there this afternoon and they were definitely open. Apparently the initial $20K estimate was mostly ruined food (hard to damage a wood-burning stove with fire!). The most of the follow-up estimate was for the damage to the flue that caught fire, which is actually in the adjacent building.

            I had dinner there on Friday night and saw no sign of fire. Just like old times. I've shared a few thoughts here:


        2. I can't be the only one who saw this thread title and thought it meant, "Tadich is really going above and beyond lately..." :-)

            Yeah. That is what I first thought. I don't know what would surprise and distress me more ... an actual fire or Tadich suddently doing some blazing dishes. There are some places that need to remain the same.
