Historic SF convenience store reopens with wine and cookies
Two restaurant industry veterans are transforming a century-old Mission neighborhood convenience store into a liquor store — with kid-friendly touches like warm cookies. Opening Monday, Dolores Deluxe will be a kind of “high-low” place, co-owner Zach Negin said: “We’ll have producer champagne, but also $12 bottles of white wine, canned cocktails, sodas and Doritos.”
Dolores Deluxe is the first San Francisco venture for Negin, owner of LA’s famous Tabula Rasa natural wine bar. Her business partner, Ramzi Budayr, was until recently Marlena’s partner in San Francisco, and previously worked at Nomad in Los Angeles and Eleven Madison Park in New York.
