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

San Francisco restaurant scene.

Grub Street's Jay B. reports that Provence restaurant closed on Saturday, to be replaced by a restaurant named Beast & the Hare (1001 Guerrero, at 22nd St.), part of an ampersand-loaded naming meme sweeping the West Coast (Sons & Daughters, Hog & Rocks, Seattle's Staple & Fancy and Emmer & Rye). The pitch: reasonably priced New American fare, including oysters (new owner Ian Marks cooked at Hog Island...) & house-made charcuterie (...& worked for a spell at Fatted Calf). Marks has secured the liquor permit; no word on how long it will take to open.

Paolo L. at Inside Scoop shares some sad news (well, SFoodie is sad, at least, having some very good memories of drinks and dinner there): CAV Wine Bar, which had recently switched to a retail operation, has shut everything down.

Mission Loc@l snapped a photo of the opening party at Blue Fig (990 Valencia), which opened on Saturday. (via Eater.)

Grub Street also trolls the liquor license applications and learns that a place named Four Seasons Cafe and Restaurant (660 Eddy) is about to open.

  • 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.'"
