A permit application for Sala & Betty mysteriously popped up in the window of the old Stallion Grill recently, and now the Chronicle reveals who's behind the project: Former Aquarelle chef/owner Teresa Wilson. The Chronicle quotes Wilson as saying Sala & Betty will serve "slow food fast in the drive-through and slow food relaxed in the dining room;" it'll offer three meals a day. The space, which began its life as a burger joint back in the 70's, is being gutted and renovated; Wilson hopes to open in "late fall of this year or early 2015."

The upscale French Aquarelle shuttered in late 2011 after over a decade in biz; Wilson originally planned to reconcept it into a Latin restaurant, Chonita's, but that project was scrapped when the building was sold.
