Bacon Bacon ready to fight, reopen restaurant

Jim Angelus is trying to bring his bacon home.

The owner of the brick-and- mortar restaurant and food truck Bacon Bacon is set to face the neighbors that oppose his shop during the Planning Commission meeting later this week in hopes of reopening the Frederick Street location.

Angelus and his neighbors have been in disagreement for roughly a year over the restaurant. His neighbors want to see a filtration system installed to help disperse the smell of bacon that comes from the restaurant. The complaint has held up Angelus' operating permits from the Health Department. The owner has previously said he didn't want to invest in installing the system only to have the department deny his permits.

Because he lacked these permits, Angelus was forced to close that location in May. He has since opened a temporary spot at Brick and Mortar Music Hall in the Mission, but hopes to reopen Frederick Street once the issue is resolved.

A new dining service counter would also need to be installed, according to the Planning Department.
