The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco food scene. The small stretch of shops on Clement between the anchors of inner and outer Richmond has a new addition: Chomp 'N Swig. Richmond Blog SF notes the restaurant (in the former Cafe Mereb space) is open, serving sandwiches and pouring beers -- there's even a happy hour (1541 Clement at 17th Ave.).

Busted! Grub Street reports, via the Examiner, an illegal, after-hours club above Monroe had the kibosh put on it by the fire marshal and entertainment commission. The link between Monroe and the now shuttered North Beach club isn't apparent, but the closed club won't be back.

The saga surrounding Cafe Gratitude's legal woes and pending closure (of some) of their restaurants has an update. Eater SF shares, via the raw restaurant's website, that the central office, located in the Mission, is for sale, as well as the Harrison Street location of the restaurant, and the North Bay restaurants in Healdsburg and San Rafael will shutter too. Gracias Madre remains off the market -- for now.

More openings: A new Thai restaurant has replaced the recently shuttered Hotaru. Grub Street discovers Navin is dishing up the standard Thai fare (1059 Powell at Washington).

Also, Grub Street discovers that Castro's Jake's on Market has softly opened over the weekend. The official opening of the neighborhood restaurant is slated for Wednesday (2223 Market at 15th St.).

  • 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.'"
