​The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the

San Francisco restaurant scene.

Grub Street SF has compiled a mother of a calendar: a timeline of all the high-profile restaurant openings slated for fall. Buzz Machine has mentioned most of the early September ones, with the exception of Cotogna (490 Pacific, aka the old Myth Cafe space), from Michael and Lindsay Tusk of Quince (Cotogna = Quince in Italian). The pitch: Lower-priced, more casual pastas, spit-roasted hogs, a full cocktail program, and ... wait for it ... wood-fired oven pizza. UPDATE: Grub Street just updated its listing, presumably based on new intel, and moved the opening date for Cotogna back to October. 

From Inside Scoop, we learn that Prospect, which was unexpectedly shut down last night, is going to be closed a few days longer than the owners initially expected. That sucks, although we bet chef Ravi Kapur is secretly grateful for a little break from opening-stretch stress.

Another Scoop report: Cafe Maritime on Lombard has been replaced by CC's Cocktails (2417 Lombard), which comes to the Marina courtesy of owner Ceci Hendrickson; Ceci is the CC in the recently closed CC's Pierce Street Manor. The new bar's logo is a big pair of red lips. Is kissing windows a thing now? Because SFoodie was looking for something to spice up our Venetian blinds.

  • 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.'"
