A summary of the past 24 hours of rumor, innuendo,

and straight-up facts about San Francisco restaurant openings and

closings.

Marcia G. of Tablehopper has a couple of bits of good news. Number one: Brenda's French Soul Food is preparing to expand by renovating the laundromat next door ― which is four times bigger than her present space ― without losing a day of business. Ms. G. also pounced on an announcement that Kyle Anderson is opening a bistro in Berkeley named Slow (1966 University Ave., Berkeley, 510-647-3663) in July. The pitch: Chef who trained under Daniel Bolud & Charlie Trotter opening 30-seat resto with big back patio, $12 dinner entrees. If you can't guess what the chef's philosophy behind the food is, well, there's just no hope for you.

Haighteration

reported yesterday that Little Chihuahua had opened location number two

(4123 24th St., at Castro; thelittlechihuahua.com). The pitch: Same as

the original ― warm chips, sustainably raised/caught meats, SF

Weekly's favorite

vegetarian burrito. Last we checked, no one had filed a Yelp

review. RUN, early adapters. It's your chance to make history.

Other news: Yesterday, SFoodie reported on the new

iteration of Saison and the new SusieCakes. And

Prospect held its press dinner last night, so prepare for a media

buzzstorm today.

  • 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.'"
