Our favorite morsels from the food blogs and beyond.

The third estate: Call her the Judith Miller of the gutter food press (and believe us, we'd know). In yesterday's Yummy Letter ex-Chron Inside Scoop reporter GraceAnne Walden related what happens when you play spoiler to a TV food show. Last week Walden casually revealed the winner -- or so she was told by a reliable source -- of Bravo's Top Chef Masters. Since then it's been nothing but tsouris from PR hacks, with speculation on Walden's part that she may be hauled before a judge to finger her Deep Throat (which, frankly, sounds kind of pervy). As for the chef Walden's source revealed as the winner? A certain Chicago chef whose name rhymes with "Payless." But you didn't hear it from us.

Terminator: Take out your Coogi sweater and poof up your shoulderpads -- tonight is the last supper for the restaurant Postrio, which survived 20 years only to, um, fail. At Between Meals, Chron's Michael Bauer gets all Greatest Generation, reliving the glory days of blini and smoked salmon and Chinese duck with hoisin cherry sauce, basking in the glamour of owner Wolfgang Puck, the Austrian canned-soup and frozen-pizza maestro himself (he's in town for Postrio's wake). See ya.

  • 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.'"
