Cotogna, the casual new eatery from (and located next door to) Quince, opened Nov. 8. That's meant a revamping of Quince's cocktail menu and the creation of an all-new one for Cotogna. The latter is also offering an innovative prix-fixe program for wine, with all bottles priced at $40.

Cydonia Fizz, named after the genus for "quince," is a blend of apple brandy, house-made quince syrup, orgeat (almond syrup), lemon, meringue (aka egg white), and seltzer. It's sweet enough to make it easy to almost accidentally polish one off in two gulps, yet sophisticated enough to encourage sipping -- and you might just end up with a meringue mustache.

Cotogna: 490 Pacific (at Montgomery), 775-8508.

  • 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.'"
