Cheese. And bread. Though it might be hard to believe in this pizza-lovin' town, they do come together in ways that have absolutely nothing to do with the Margherita. Take Melt!, the café in North Beach that feels like a place you'd be grateful to find in some second-tier French city, when all you want to do is drop your backpack, without having to navigate a menu packed with multivowel food words.

We like the open-face Welsh rarebit, sourdough doused with a sauce of tangy cheddar and ale. And it comes with greens tossed with balsamic vinaigrette, so all you need to do is drop the mental baggage that's the equivalent of a JanSport Big Bear and chill.

Melt! 700 Columbus (at Filbert), 392-9290

  • 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.'"
