Sleuthy Chowhound types report that Simply Ming wants to open a restaurant in Fort Point, possibly at the corner of A and Melcher streets. Right now, the desolate corner is home to an abandoned deli and some very interesting graffiti. Intriguing!
If true, Ming would join the respectable ranks of Joanne Chang (Flour), Barbara Lynch (Menton and Sportello), and Jason Owens (who plans to open a large-scale market in the neighborhood), each of whom have helped make the 'hood a bit tastier. Tsai has been spotted scouting out the area in recent weeks, but maybe he's just on the prowl for a decent sandwich? [CH]
