Luques Restaurant & Bar Makes Some Menu Changes

We are very excited about a few changes to our menus for Breakfast, Lunch and in the Bar. The lunch menu changed the most. We added a delicious Fish Taco Salad (pictured here)

The other new items on the lunch menu are a Greek Salad, Wedge Salad, Tuna Melt Panini and Rueben Sandwich with corned beef. We are getting a great response to the new items.

We also increased the number of daily specials we offer each day adding more pastas with seasonal ingredients.

In the evening, the bar menu now features some great personal pizzas.

Muni’s popular Powell-Mason cable car line to go out of service for four days

I wanted pass on this article from the San Francisco Examiner:

By: Will Reisman 03/07/11 3:03 PM Examiner Staff Writer

Later this month, Muni’s Powell-Mason cable car line, a route that draws thousands of tourists each day, will shut down for four days due to repair work.From March 28 – April 1, bus service will replace the Powell-Mason line, which carries 6,578 passengers on a daily basis, according to the Municipal Transportation Agency, which operates Muni.

While that cable car line is out of service for repairs, tourists and other riders will still be able to travel on the Powell-Hyde Cable Car line, which travels on a similar path from Union Square to the northern points of San Francisco.However, the Powell-Hyde line will be out of commission for repairs from April 25 – April 29, and all three cable car routes (including the California line that is currently down) will not be running from June 1 – June 5.Operating in continuous service for the past 27 years, Muni’s cable car system has gone without a major improvement project since the mid 90s. According to the agency, system upgrades to the cable car infrastructure are essential to maintain reliability and safety standards.
