Opening Today on Geary: French-Vietnamese Restaurant Quan Bac

Big blue Quan Bac opens today on Geary in the lounge-restaurant space that last housed Sushi Rock #3. (Heck, it's housed a half-dozen restaurants over the past decade.) Owned by Shera Le, who also runs Bun Bo Hue Quan Ngon Vietnamese Noodle on Noriega, Quan Bac specializes in French-Vietnamese fusion. It's not yet clear whether that means contemporary East-West food or the hybrid cuisine that emerged among the middle and upper classes in Vietnam during the colonial period (the kind of food served at La Vie, Le Colonial, and Aux Delices).

Phone calls didn't yield much information other than the fact that the

restaurant's hours right now are 11 a.m.-11 p.m., that there's a bar,

and that the signature dish on the 100-item menu might just be garlic

noodles. The sign posted above the door pre-opening (pictured) also

touted chicken phở and beef stew with French bread, a French-Vietnamese

classic.

Quan Bac 4112 Geary (at Fifth Ave.), 668-8898

  • 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.'"
