Ethiopian restaurant to continue Sixth Street corridor’s renaissance

The resurgence of the Sixth Street area South of Market will continue next week with the grand opening of an Ethiopian restaurant.

The San Francisco Redevelopment Agency has been working to improve the economically battered area since 2003 with the assistance of local nonprofit consultant Urban Solutions.

Since then, 30 building facades have been overhauled and 30 new businesses have been founded in the area, creating more than 100 jobs, Urban Solutions figures show.

The renaissance is scheduled to continue next Tuesday when Moya Ethiopian Restaurant and Coffeehouse opens to the public.

A ceremony is scheduled at 10:30 a.m. Aug. 31 at Moya, which at 1044 Folsom St., is between Sixth and Seventh streets, followed by a bread-making demonstration and lunch specials.
