Named after the veggie of the same name, Black Radish, the restaurant is open in North Park at 2591 University Avenue (at Villa Terrace St.).
The stylish and cozy affair is far afield from the divey bar it replaced (Tobacco Rhoda’s).
Black Radish is the personal dream of partners chef Itze Behar and Las Vegas commercial architect John Welsh. BR was conceived to bring a love of New York city’s intimate fine dining scene to historical North Park. It will serve a seasonally rotating menu of California cuisine inspired by local ingredients and French techniques.
The BR team also owns The Tavern in Coronado (Coronado Plaza).
Wednesday 4 pm to 10 pm
Thursday 4 pm to 10 pm
Friday 4 pm to 10 pm
Saturday 4 pm to 10 pm
Sunday 10 am to 3 pm.

So, what’s a black radish?
Radishes belong to the mustard or cabbage family (along with brassicas like horseradish, broccoli rabe, cauliflower, and romanesco), and they have been around for a very long time. Don’t confuse BRs with a dark and dirty beet root.
