​The past 72 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the

San Francisco restaurant scene.


Inside Scoop's Paolo L. learns that a pair of Shanghai 1930 staffers are planning to open Pudong (2029 Market) in the former Mecca space. The pitch: Shanghainese food with French accents.

Humin at Tenderblog snaps a shot of the dueling signboards outside Wrap Delight (426 Larkin), a Vietnamese banh mi shop now selling tacos and burritos as well. Is this, you ask, the first Mexican-Vietnamese restaurant in San Francisco? No, it is not.

Inside Scoop

also has some good news for anyone not living in Santa Cruz -- Charlie

Parker, a Manresa alumnus recently profiled in the NYT for his food at

Bonny Doon's Cellar Door, is going to become the chef at Plum, Daniel Patterson's Oakland restaurant.

Eater's Carolyn A. reports that the large outdoor patio at Bar Agricole is finally open.

Eater also reminds us that Jones and 25 Lusk both opened this weekend, not to mention the 24th Street Chilli Cha Cha.

  • 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.'"
