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

Chef Elizabeth Falkner (Citizen Cake and Orson) will flambé, sauté, and chop her way through the Food Network's Next Iron Chef: Super Chef. Eater SF reports the battle starts Oct. 30. And while that's great, we're just as excited about Falkner's announcement, via Twitter, that Citizen Cake will start making ice cream this Wednesday. Earlier we mentioned the change in name (Elizabeth Falkner's Citizen Cake Ice Cream Parlor and Eats) and the lighter-hearted and more fun direction for the cake (and now ice cream) restaurant.

Hayes Valley's Farm -- plants, bees, and all -- will have to move. The Examiner reports the two-year-old farm on the plot of land where the Central Freeway on/off ramp was located (pre-1989's Loma Prieta earthquake) will have to vacate for a condo project. The farm is currently looking for a new space, and will leave its current plot on Laguna (at Fell) by February.

Changes in the kitchen: Inside Scoop reports that after 10 years with the Boulevard and Prospect team, chef Ravi Kapur is heading out to spend more time with his family. Both restaurants will remain relatively unchanged for the time being.

  • 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.'"
