  • Matt Brimer's warm Brussels sprout dish was one of SFoodie's 92 favorite dishes this year.

Looks like Matt Brimer, the young chef de cuisine of Maverick, is set to leave the Mission bistro at the end of this weekend after less than a year in the kitchens there.

SFoodie was pretty much entranced by his lighter, tech-geekified approach to the restaurant's tweaked Americana, and Brimer seemed to win over the public -- or at least a few local food bloggers -- with his butter-larded burger. Maverick's executive chef and co-owner, Scott Youkilis, says he's already hired a new chef de cuisine, but isn't yet announcing the cook's name.

  • 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.'"
