While we've come to know the various locations of Charles Phan's Out the Door as decent places for dessert, the mini-chain's crystallized ginger snap cookies ($5) are a revelation. They're pleasingly crisp and dark due to the use of molasses, but the little strips of candied rhizome embedded in the cookies keep stealing the show.

These snaps would make a nice addition to one of the restaurant's impressive-looking to-go dinner kits. By way of warning, though, each bag is likely to be a grappling point with your clued-in friends, since some cookies have more candied ginger than others.

  • 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.'"
