Expatriates of England and Ireland living in San Francisco tend to know about Piccadilly Fish & Chips, which provides a taste of the homeland on these shores. But those who don't frequent Polk Street might have otherwise overlooked it. That's not a good idea unless you don't enjoy a deliciously light and crisp fry-up.

After deciding how many pieces you want, you should ask for a second scoop of their tartar sauce, which is exceptional and really highlights how many inferior versions are passed off in other places. The other secret to tastiness has to be in the use of what looks like a Cadillac of fryers, imported from Wales and adorned with beautiful glass.

I keep meaning to try the shrimp and crab, especially the latter now that the commercial season has kicked back into gear, but it's hard to get past that good fish. Piccadilly Fish & Chips is located at 1348 Polk (at Pine); 771-6477. —Tamara Palmer

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
