The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco restaurant scene.
Two from the 'Hopper today:
SFoodie spent Saturday mopping the kitchen floor (no, seriously ― it'd been a long time), but the Tablehopper? At Tyler Florence's 40th birthday party in Mill Valley. Oh yeah, and the party favors were a preview of El Paseo, the steakhouse concept at 17 Throckmorton (at E. Blithedale) from TyFlo, alpha bro of the local restaurant scene. Tentative opening date is Mar. 15, and Florence's partner in the venture: Sammy Hagar. Total chest bump.
Another from Tablehopper: Today's launch of Source at 11 Division (at DeHaro), a vegetarian place (with vegan desserts) catering to the Design District. All you meat-eschewing workers in the Ann Sacks tile showroom? Total chest bump.
