The last 72 hours in rumor, innuendo, and straight-out

facts about restaurant openings and closings in San Francisco.

Marcia G. of Tablehopper takes a look at Cafe des Amis (2000 Union), the 7,000-square-foot brasserie in Cow Hollow opened by the Bacchus Group, the owners of Spruce and Village Pub. She files an architectural report worthy of an interior design magazine, calling out the zinc bar, marble floors, gas lamps, and Ralph Lauren's own chandelier (well, sort of). The pitch: Classic French dishes from Ed Carew and Jason Deering; charcuterie program and raw bar; pan-France wine list and French cocktails. Looks like they're swinging for the bleachers. The projected opening date is July 21.


to Live SoMa, Moya (1044 Folsom, 431-5544) opened on Friday. The

pitch: Cafe and Ethiopian restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and

dinner; Live SoMa has posted a full

menu, which includes a few dishes not seen at other local Ethiopian

and Eritrean restaurants. For more intel, check out SFoodie's interview

with owner Fana Alemayehu

And just in case you weren't

reading SFoodie closely on Friday, we interviewed the owner of new

roving hot dog cart Gorilla

Pete's and discovered the Chai Cart lady was starting

a pop-up lunch restaurant called Green Coriander at La Provence (1001 Guerrero).

  • 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.'"
