Openings and Closings

The Asian Cajun is going in at Alameda and Zuni

This building at Alameda and Zuni held Taqueria La Capilla until last fall, when the place closed up shop. And while we saw no activity inside, the windows are papered over, suggesting that renovations are afoot.

Another clue: The Asian Cajun lists this address on its application for a liquor license; the hearing is slated for June 17. And while we were initially excited to see that the owner was Charlie Phan, we're fairly certain that this is not a venture from the San Francisco restaurateur who owns the famous Slanted Door, among other concepts.
