Just three days after Wise Sons Jewish Delicatessen opened their fourth location, a bagel shop in Larkspur, Hoodline reports that a fifth location is on the way in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley neighborhood, taking the place of Artís Coffee at 537 Octavia Street.

According to Hoodline, an Artís representative said that Wise Sons will take over their lease and has “offered to retain most of the staff.”

The original Wise Sons location is on 24th Street in the Mission. Founded in 2010 by brothers Evan and Ari Bloom together with Leo Beckerman, it serves up bagels and a hip take on classic Jewish deli fare. Wise Sons also has a cafe in the Contemporary Jewish Museum and a bagel shop and bakery in the Fillmore District. Their fourth location opened in Marin on July 17, and they also do pop-ups at farmers markets.

Citing city planning department documents, Eater reports that the space is 700 square feet and was converted from retail to limited restaurant use in 2015. “That would indicate that Wise Sons won’t be making patty melts, as it does on 24th Street,” Eater speculates. “Instead, a coffee and bagel outpost sounds more likely.”

A Wise Sons representative told J. that they aren’t yet commenting publicly on the new location.
