LGBT Center Considers Restaurant Space, Perhaps on the Roof

New, 12 comments

While Mission man Gus Murad battles to keep his rooftop space at Medjool, the LGBT Center is reportedly enlisting his help in opening up a rooftop space of their own. According to the Bay Area Reporter, the nonprofit community center has a land use attorney on hand to explore the possibility — one inspired by nonprofit restaurant Delancey Street and encouraged by the local supe. It seems there haven't been any handshakes or signatures yet, but Gus has a "unique idea" about how to structure an eatery setup with the center, using an LGBT workforce and doing some kind of revenue and profit-sharing. He's actually among up to five parties who are interested in doing something with the center, which is considering opening a space on the first floor, or the fourth, or both. The impetus from this all comes from the nonprofit's cash-flow issues — renting out the space to other parties doesn't quite cover costs as previously imagined, so they're being a little more "creative."
