Unless you do sketchy things with other peoples' money for a living, $15 for lunch is probably out of reach. Except on super special occasions, like making it through another week still employed. Next time you have something to celebrate, head to Tsunami Mission Bay (302 King at Fourth St.), which is owned by the same folks who run Nihon Whisky Lounge, Café Abir, and the NOPA sushi bar of the same name. Tsunami's new bento box ($15) offers a quartet of sashimi, three nigiri pieces, and chicken teriyaki, Kobe beef stew, or broiled unagi with rice, goma ae, and oshinko, all preceded by some of the creamiest-textured, deliciously mushroom-flavored miso soup in town -- just the thing to make you feel important. If a tad poorer.

  • 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.'"
