Bar Tartine’s New Sandwich Shop And Bakery Expected in October

Heading to Bar Tartine? Not so fast. Grub Street (via Inside Scoop) reports that the popular Valencia Street restaurant is closing up shop this week in order to install a 15,000-pound bread machine. The addition of this heavy piece of equipment is just one of the changes that the eatery is implementing before it revamps itself into a sandwich shop-bakery-fancy-restaurant hybrid. Inside Scoop has it that the currently sexy, romantic interiors, including the dark-wood floors and black wall accents (which we love!) will be "dialed down," while the new menu will have a Central- and Eastern-European bent, and the name Bar Tartine might actually disappear altogether. The full turnaround is supposed to be completed around October.
