Burrito Justice is doing a bang-up job plying us with historic photographs and keeping us all current on plans for renovations and new construction at St. Luke’s Hospital — including today’s rundown of Wednesday’s community workshop, where Supervisors David Campos and Michela Alioto-Pier joined a group of 100 doctors, nurses and neighbors to talk about local people’s priorities for the upcoming renovation.
The plan is to raze the building on the corner of Valencia and Cesar Chavez and rebuild next door. Check out Burrito Justice itself for an undeniably fabulous multihued diagram of the campus, and for a rundown of the concerns people raised last night.
The Examiner painted such a flattering portrait of the food and ambience at La Oaxaqueña Bakery and Restaurant on Mission St. that we’re going to check it out. Especially the tortas, described thusly:
I discovered why so many eat tortas here: La Oaxaqueña bakes its own airy rolls, which crisp up sexily but stay soft inside. Thin slices of highly seasoned, well-cooked meats like venison ($9.95) with melted tart quesillo, pickled jalapenos, lettuce and tomato are lubricated by the buttery griddled surfaces of the roll.
Lastly, it’s hard to imagine a much thinner Chronicle, but it’s on the horizon. The Bay Guardian reports that Hearst is gunning to lay off 150 union workers, or more than half the newsroom, and eliminate seniority.
