Two corner restaurants on Haight Street. Both totally available. Both bringing a lot to the table.

Let’s look at the stats.

Size: 1,200-1,400 square feet, depending on the source.
Price to rent: $5,000/month
Price to buy: $145,000
Comes with: Hood/kitchen, and not much else.

This location is a little lonely after coming out of a 10-year relationship with Burger Joint. It was rocking a retro vibe for a while, but now that BJ’s gone, it’s suddenly having an identity crisis. Basically this is a perfect spot if you’re looking for something totally sunny and bright, but also pretty vacant. You know, a place that you can easily mold into whatever you want it to be.

Size: 1,850 square feet (plus a mezzanine!)

This one is dark and attractive, and a bit aloof. Its last relationship ended somewhat… messily, but clearly this space did pretty well in the divorce. Basically, the spot is bigger and has more to offer than 700 Haight, but commands twice the price. It’s confident. Maybe a little too confident, given the four months it’s spent on the market. Our suggestion? This one needs to open a little, if it really wants its next relationship to work.
So, two very different restaurant spaces, a block apart. Both on the market, looking for love. Of course, everyone’s preferences and needs are different, but as far as you’re concerned…
