  • The upscale steakhouse is being axed -- er, cleavered.
The Chronicle's Michael Bauer reported on his blog last night that Acme Chophouse (24 Willie Mays Plaza at AT&T Park) is closing December 31. Rumors have been swirling for at least a year about the upscale steakhouse that emphasizes sustainable sourcing. Managing chef-partner Traci Des Jardins cited the difficulty of filling 330 seats during baseball's off season. Baseball fans (and others) will still be able to get their food and drink on at the AT&T Park anchor restaurant, thanks to a more casual concept that will replace Acme sometime next year. Acme head chef Thom Fox will stay on for the new venture -- earlier, he tweeted to Edible San Francisco that "We will still keep true to all things that we believe. Source, cook & serve good, clean & just food."

  • 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.'"
