The restaurant Finn Town has announced it’s opening at 2251 Market Street in the Castro Friday, December 2.

The eatery, which backers say is inspired by the Gold Rush era when the gay neighborhood was known as Finn Town, will feature the work of chef Ryan Scott, who appeared on the TV show Top Chef. It will combine “contemporary comfort fare with a vibrant cocktail scene,” according to a news release.  

“We wanted to create an upbeat neighborhood atmosphere that visually harkens back to the 1850s when the food was unpretentious and the drinks were strong and satisfying,” Scott stated. “Everything at Finn Town will be made in-house from the Fresno hot sauce on our deviled eggs to the English muffins at brunch and of course, every dessert and a daily bread.”

Ryan is straight but Rick Hamer, Finn Town’s owner, is gay.

Bar offerings will include cocktails, beer, wine, and cider.
