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

As some restaurants gear up for their Christmas dinners, and others prepare to bow out before the end of the year (such as 2223 Restaurant, Citizen Cake, Leticia's, Namu, Spork), today brought a couple snippets of new openings and closures.

Inside Scoop
notes that North Beach's Steps of Rome Trattoria has closed and is on the market. We're sure the highly visible cafe space will be snatched up in no time.

Just a few blocks away, Inside Scoop also discovers Original Joe's is readying to re-open in January (their website has a countdown clock). We're sure the many fans of the Italian restaurant (since 1937) will be there en masse since they haven't been able to grab a bite at the S.F. outpost of the restaurant after a fire closed the Tenderloin location in 2007.

  • 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.'"
