Ukiah Japanese Smokehouse, Ben’s Tune-Up and Holeman and Finch have extended their offerings to cater to brunch crowds, further elevating the South Slope experience. And they’re doing it with eclectic fusion dishes and spirited cocktails jam-packed with flavor and style.
“It’s definitely more people out and about,” said Michael Lewis, chef and owner of Ukiah Japanese Smokehouse. “The South Slope, in general, there’s much more foot traffic. It’s not pre-pandemic party but it’s as close as we’ve seen it since pre-pandemic. … It’s starting to feel a little bit more normal.”
