Eater San Francisco reported that, as of July, Liholiho was aiming for a mid-October reopening. The official restaurant website currently says “reopening by November.”

Liholiho transitioned to takeout during the pandemic, before reopening in the spring of 2021 in a space at Nob Hill’s 18th Street. This location is now home to its sibling restaurant Good Good Culture Club.

Liholiho is co-owned by Chef Ravi Kapur, known for his homemade SPAM and short rib steam buns. According to the restaurant’s website, “Chef Ravi Kapur has been a professional Chef for more than 20 years. Kapur was born in Hawaii to his Native Hawaiian-Chinese Mother and Father from India. The flavors of his diverse food cultures, together with his upbringing in Hawaii, have cultivated his palate DNA – a treasure he draws from to create his unique and delicious food.”

SFist reports, “it remains unclear whether Liholiho’s bar within-the-restaurant, the downstairs hideaway Louie’s Gen-Gen Room, will be coming back in a form similar to its pre-pandemic form.”

A firm reopening date has not been announced. What Now San Francisco was unable to contact the owners by the time of publication.
