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

San Francisco restaurant scene.

This is a dark week for bakeries. First Patisserie Delanghe closes, and now Paolo L. of Inside Scoop brings word that the 134-year-old Boniere Bakery in Alameda closed after the landlord jacked up the rent. Go support your local 100-year-old bakery. Buy a pastry from Victoria Bakery in North Beach, say, or go hug the owners of Galli's Sanitary Bakery in South San Francisco and beg them to stick around. 

But there's a bright spot. After an interminable wait, Eater SF's Carolyn A. reports that a sign has appeared on the windows of the Mission branch of Arizmendi (1268 Valencia). It reads "See you next week." 

Scoop also reports that a place called Macellato the Sandwich (59 Columbus) has opened in the old Caffe Macaroni space. The pitch: Fried-chicken sandwich with Fulton Valley Farms meat. Do you need to know more?

One opening from last night, much reported on: Plum in Oakland.

  • 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.'"
