  • After seven years, Jeanty at Jack's folded
The city's highest-profile closures last month were Jack Falstaff and Jeanty at Jack's. PlumpJack Group announced the closure of Falstaff, its SOMA fine-dining outpost, in April -- its Balboa Café (3119 Fillmore at Greenwich) remains open, and the company is focused on reconcepting and remodeling PlumpJack Café (3127 Fillmore at Filbert) by the end of the year or early next (see previous blog entry). The shuttering of Jeanty at Jack's on Friday, May 22, after seven years in operation, was sudden and unexpected. Philippe Jeanty told SFoodie that San Francisco's high cost of doing business helped doom the place after seven years of operating in the iconic location. His Bistro Jeanty in Napa continues on. Bar Crudo closed its downtown location, but moved to a bigger space in Nopa (655 Divisadero at Hayes, 409-0679). A full roster of the 86'd after the jump.

Bar Crudo, 603 Bush (at Stockton)

De Afghanan Kabob House, 1303 Polk (at Bush)

Island Café, 901 Taraval (at 19th Street)

Jack Falstaff, 598 2nd Street (at Brannan)

Jeanty at Jack's, 615 Sacramento (at Montgomery)

Lightening Foods, 3 Embarcadero Center (at Drumm)

Rohan Lounge, 3809 Geary (at 2nd Avenue)

  • 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.'"
