As if timed to comfort Stanley Saitowitz-loving foodies (you're out there, aren't you?), Arch Daily yesterday posted a series of images showing another Saitowitz restaurant in the pipeline — just as Conduit closes its doors. The images above, of a soul food restaurant called Mississippi Blues, have actually been on the architecture firm's website for a while, best we can tell, but curiously gets billing on the arch porn website as if it already exists. It doesn't — last the folks at Saitowitz heard from the project sponsor, it was before the economic meltdown, when they were working on getting Fillmore-area redevelopment funds. If — if! — the restaurant ever happens, we're told it would head to an empty space right across from Yoshi's, where once a donut shop and then Chinese restaurant lived. And now, we pass the baton to sister site Eater SF!
