His Bracina project in Jack London Square might be on hold, but it looks like chef Daniel Patterson isn't letting that stop him from opening in Oakland. The Coi/Il Cane Rosso chef/owner has plans to open a small restaurant named Plum in Franklin Square at the edge of the red-hot Uptown neighborhood near Broadway and Grand, in a space that recently housed a Louisiana Fried Chicken franchise. (Plum is a reference to the William Carlos Williams poem "This Is Just To Say," apparently.) Plum will be right next door to now-shuttered Franklin Square Wine Bar, and near the yet-to-open Uptown spin-off of Temescal's Bakesale Betty, as well as Luka's Taproom, Pican, and Ozumo. Word has it that Patterson, who lives in Oakland, and who once shared his frustration with us about the small-business climate in S.F., is aiming for a summer opening. Look for more details to break in tomorrow's Inside Scoop in the Chron.

  • 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.'"
