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

Last week we spotted a liquor license for Charlie Palmer's restaurant group in the window of the Crescent Hotel. Now, Inside Scoop confirms Palmer will create a new concept in the space, with a restaurant slated for the current dining room near the second floor entry. Burritt Room fans need not worry: the bar is to remain relatively unchanged.

The new and vintage kitchen shop, Pot + Pantry, which opened just about a year ago, is moving to roomier digs. The store from former Williams-Sonoma merchandise coordinator Donna Suh Wageman will reopen in the former 18 Reasons space (593 Guerrero at 18th St.) this Thursday. They'll celebrate with a housewarming party from 5-8 p.m. All are welcome.

And the counter ticks up: The second location of The Melt, at One Embarcadero Center (at Clay) started flipping sandwiches today. The Feast reveals the first-of-three openings slated for November ushers in menu additions: local beers, sparking wines, and new cheesy creations.

After closing on Van Ness, La Fina Estampa scooted over to a new location and is open again. The Tender dishes the Peruvian and Spanish restaurant's menu remains the same (1407 Bush at Polk).

And more more burger news, Eater SF notes Burger Urge's countdown in their Cow Hollow space looks as though they'll open around Nov. 18.

  • 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.'"
