Little Baobab Slated to Reopen By End of Year

In a bit of welcomed news, Capp Street Crap is reporting that everyone’s favorite Senegalese restaurant, Little Baobab, is slated to reopen by the end of the year. The restaurant, located on 19th Street between Mission and Capp, has been closed since May of last year when a fire knocked it out of commission.

For the past three months, crews have been working to fix up the damaged space at 3376 19th St., between Mission and Capp streets. Owner Marco Senghor said he’s planning to reinvent Little Baobab as a Senegalese fast food restaurant serving wraps, crepes, popsicles and fresh juice.

In business since the late 1990s, Little Baobab has been shuttered since May 10, 2013, when a fire broke out in its kitchen area. The cause was never determined. […]

Because of the fire, Senghor now has to make the space ADA compliant. His goal is reopen the restaurant in the next two months or so. He’s also applying for a permit for outdoor seating.

Fingers crossed that the renovations continue smoothly, and that the outdoor seating permits come through.
