San Francisco’s iconic restaurant The Stinking Rose, home of the “Forty Clove Garlic Chicken,” reopened on Jan. 24 in a new location, 430 Columbus Avenue. The location at 325 Columbus Avenue has been closed since the pandemic struck in March 2020. Though there was a fear that it would be gone for good, the restaurant is reopening in the former Calzone’s Restaurant location. An additional outlet of The Stinking Rose in Beverly Hills remains temporarily closed.
The news about the San Francisco rebirth was posted on the restaurant’s website: “We are excited to announce we will be reopening in a new location — 430 Columbus Ave. We look forward to serving you.”
