      And now, vegans, a little something for you! I got a report from a
      tablehopper reader that they are diggin' the new eats at ~THE USUAL
      SUSPECTS CAFÉ~ in North Beach. The two-level space has a 90-percent
      vegan menu, serving a few dishes with real cheese, hence the ten
      percent that's non-vegan. The menu is mostly Mediterranean comfort
      food, with some Latin flair. Dishes include pressed taquitos with
      cashew cheese, seared red pepper, onion, and asparagus with a cashew-
      based cilantro "sour cream"; shwarma with house-made seitan; some
      pasta dishes; and quite possibly the only vegan pizza in San
      Francisco, with an organic cornmeal crust and a variety of toppings.
      The chefs are Mark Benedetto and Ted Rosenblatt, and the owner is
      Bob Bosco. Vegan and dairy-free desserts are being baked in-house a
      few times a week by Sugar Beat Sweets, a change from the typical
      citywide selection from Black China Bakery. Each level has 50 seats,
      and the space has a 1950s diner look—you'll also hear some surf
      tunes on the sound system. Beer and wine, and some open-mic comedy
      begins this week Thu–Sat—look for even more comedy, plus acoustic
      music down the road. Hours are Tue–Fri 11am–10pm, and Sat 5pm–10pm
      or later, closed Sun–Mon. 450 Broadway St. at Montgomery, 415-434-
      4444.
