Open Tuesday a Newly Redone Papalote

The Escobedo brothers, who run the small and very popular restaurant, improved the health score of the original storefront on 24th Street to 86, with no high-risk violations.

Still, Miguel Escobedo wrote in an e-mail: “After improving our health score to 86 storage became a bigger issue so we’re expanding and remodeling the kitchen to maintain our high standard of cleanliness as well as creating a better storage situation.”

Workers hammered, cleaned and installed lots of new counters through the day on Monday. Escobedo said they would reopen tomorrow.

Founder/Executive Editor. I’ve been a Mission resident since 1998 and a professor emeritus at Berkeley’s J-school since 2019 when I retired. I got my start in newspapers at the Albuquerque Tribune in the city where I was born and raised. Like many local news outlets, The Tribune no longer exists. I left daily newspapers after working at The New York Times for the business, foreign and city desks. Lucky for all of us, it is still there.

As an old friend once pointed out, local has long been in my bones. My Master’s Project at Columbia, later published in New York Magazine, was on New York City’s experiment in community boards.

Right now I'm trying to figure out how you make that long-held interest in local news sustainable. The answer continues to elude me.

  1. I bet they will pay for their remodeling costs by upping the price of a super burrito from $12 to $13. Delicious… but übber expensive.
