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

San Francisco restaurant scene.

Inside Scoop's Paolo L. has an opening date for Twenty Five Lusk (which is the address): Oct. 16. The lineup: Matthew Dolan, chef; Chad Bourdon, GM; Cass Calder Smith, architect; Cesar Kusik, wine director. The pitch: It's not clear from the report what the cuisine will be, but there is a 120-seat dining room upstairs and a massive lounge downstairs. SFoodie already knows that we are going to be forcing a hyphen between "Twenty" and "Five," whether the restaurant wants it or not.

Scoop also reports that Flora has replaced chef Chris Dettmar with Rico Rivera, a Pizzaiolo veteran, and gone all casual again.

  • 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.'"
