Make way for Tri-Tip (and other tasty to-go)


The 1801 L building has already opened to apartment residents and is starting work on the street-level shops and restaurants. Fellow foodies take note, because today I spotted a banner for a Buckhorn Grill at the corner of 18th & L, across from Crepeville and Aioli Bodega Espanola. I learned to love Buckhorn at their Walnut Creek location when I was living in the East Bay (this is their first outside the Bay Area, despite their connection to the Buckhorn Steak & Roadhouse in nearby Winters). If you’re not familiar, it’s a great sandwich/salad/entree & sides quick service restaurant (more like Pronto than Jack’s). I’m not a big red meat fan, but their tri-tip is excellent; they also have chicken, salmon and a few vegetarian options. They were originally supposed to open this summer, but hopefully they’ll speed things up and start serving up some comforting dishes this winter. Whenever they open, I predict it will be a popular place for a casual but good lunch or dinner.

    From what I read, there is also going to be a flower shop, wine bar, and a “European” mart with that sells cigars and fine chocolates, along with what regular corner markets sell.

    It was quite some time ago I heard about these, and at the time leases were not signed yet other than Buckhorns, so things could have changed. I hope not though, that is a nice mix of retail.

    I take part of that back..the wine bar is a go, the other two I’m not sure about.

    There’s a paper sign up for an art gallery, but the other spaces are still a mystery to this pedestrian.
