Last week, in profiling Petit Crenn — opening today, August 11 — we mentioned the surge of forthcoming restaurants en route to Hayes Valley, like Kim Alter’s forthcoming Gough Street project and Gabriela Camara’s quickly approaching Cala.

Tack on another high-profile newcomer:

This winter, Adriano Paganini will open a restaurant at the new mixed use building under construction at 450 Hayes Street.

Paganini — who owns a handful of restaurants in the city, including the newly three-starred Belga, Lolinda, Beretta, Delarosa and more — is keeping the exact concept of the Hayes Valley project under wraps.

He will take the ground floor space, with the stated goal of opening a restaurant that will not duplicate any of his other restaurants or anything else in the neighborhood. He does tease that he wants it to become more of an everyday neighborhood spot than many of the nearby newcomers that have become destination-worthy.
