How do you celebrate when you’ve just hit three home runs in a World Series game?
You head to the Mission to your favorite restaurant and convince the owner to open up for you, even though the kitchen was already closed.
Pablo Sandoval, his older brother (and uncanny look-alike) Michael and a few friends went straight from AT&T Park to Limon, the Peruvian restaurant on Valencia, on Wednesday night. The restaurant closes at 10, and Sandoval wasn’t finished with his postgame demands until well after 9:30. But being a star slugger has its perks.
“You have to open up after he homers three times,” said owner and chef Martin Castillo. “He’s a great customer. We always go the extra mile for him.”
According to Castillo, Sandoval is a fan of the rotisserie chicken and the empanadas. “We love that food,” Michael Sandoval said.
