While renovations are grinding on at the Metreon at 101 Fourth St. (at Mission), the new modern and brightly illuminated food court (mostly) opened this last weekend. The eateries that debuted on Saturday, were Buckhorn Grill, Jillian's, and Japanese restaurant Sanraku. Monday and the next few weeks, welcomes SF Soup Company, Cako Creamery, Cako Cupcakes, and So Green Yogurt.

SFoodie attended a preview tour of the Metreon makeover last week, presented by Scot Vallee, Vice President of Development of Westfield Group. The most noticeable changes are the closure of Metreon's corner entrance (the Target store's future entrance), and renovations to the entrance on 4th street, which leads to the AMC ticket counter.

Opening between March and May are, Brandy Ho's Hunan Food, Stone Oven Gourmet (sandwiches and salads), Sorabol Korean BBQ, Firewood Cafe, Coriander Gourmet Thai, Freshroll Vietnamese Rolls & Bowls, Creperie Saint Germain (the former buckwheat crepe food truck that parked at Howard and 2nd street), the fifth Super Duper Burger location, and La Boulange.

Then, starting in June, another outpost of Chipotle Mexican Grill joins in, followed by Split Bread, a sandwich shop with spit-roasted meats, artisan breads and housemaid pickles, and South Bay mall food chain Inay Filipino.

The upper level Target store is scheduled to open this fall, in October.

Here's the Fourth Street entrance, where a walkway leads to the AMC ticket counter.

  • 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.'"
