It's All About Meat: A Bacon Truck, Beef Sandwiches, and Pig and Pie

The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco food scene.

The smell of bacon is wafting through the city air today, as Bacon Bacon Truck, which we mentioned earlier, parks in SOMA for its first day. SFist shares the news that bacon lovers can pick up lunch this week (Tue.-Thu.) on Bluxome (at Fifth St.).

Because one meat truck isn't enough, Inside Scoop reports Avedano's is planning a truck for the Hayes Valley Proxy Project. The butcher shop's truck will serve beef and pork sandwiches six days a week. They'll be pulling into their parking spot any moment now.

The meatily-named Pig and Pie is slated for the former Discolandia record store at 2962 24th St. (at Alabama). While unsure if the menu will indeed include pork, or meat of any kind, Grub Street shares that there will be drinks. The partners behind the business, Nathan Overstreet and Miles Pickerin, have filed for the ever-elusive liquor license.

Inside Scoop shares more details about Cedar Hill, slated to open in the Marina around Labor Day. The Southern restaurant is installing a smoker that will allow it to make its own bacon, smoke fish, and cook large amounts of, you guessed it, meat.

The only meatless news of the day is the closure of year-old Ristorante Allegro in Hayes Valley. Inside Scoop reports the Italian restaurant's shutter came quick, and the space is already on the market. Maybe a vegetarian eatery will want the space?

  • 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.'"
