Poached eggs on toast. With Jake Des Voignes' jumbo asparagus-laden interpretation, it's no longer food merely for unadventurous toddlers or afghan-swaddled seniors. Local Mission Eatery's signature open-face construction succeeds on the strength of its Meyer lemon-brown butter mousseline, a sauce you'll no doubt need Escoffier On Line to refresh your memory about. Tart and a little tannic, it lifts the whole sandwich above ordinary, even as the toasted slice of brioche (from in-house Knead Patisserie) grounds the thing in a field of butter.

Local Mission Eatery 3111 24th St. (at Folsom), 655-3422

  • 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.'"
