Burger fans can now head over to Harvard just south of Central where a Rex's Hamburger joint has taken over the space that was once home to Salsa Fresca. The restaurant's menu is similar to the offerings at other Rex's, meaning: big, messy burgers with skinny fries, one house-battered onion ring and a side of house-made applesauce. The Harvard Rex's will serve burgers in environmentally-friendly baskets rather than disposable containers. They'll also offer salads and fajitas in the coming months. Stop in anytime after 8 a.m. for a breakfast of soft tacos stuffed with bacon, sausage or chorizo and eggs, hashbrowns and chile. Call 255-5456 for hours and information.
Bob Allen and his New York, New York hot dog cart are back Downtown after a months-long hiatus. Fans of the Boar's Head dogs Bob serves up can find his cart parked on the Fourth Street mall just south of Tijeras. It's Bob's partner Morgan who staffs the New York, New York hot dog cart that is usually stationed at Fourth and Central (outside Maloney's).
Got interesting fodder for “The Dish” that doesn't involve the “coming soon” sign on that Jamaican restaurant in Nob Hill? I want to know about it. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, call 346-0660 ext. 245 or fax 256-9651. Great ideas will be rewarded with gift certificates to NYPD, the Café and Wine Bar at Page One or Maximito's.
