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

We thought the Inner Richmond's Le Soleil was a goner after it closed for renovations in July. But the Vietnamese restaurant is back -- with a revamped menu and new decor (133 Clement at Third Ave.).

First there was an address. Now William Werner's pending patisserie has a name: Craftsman and Wolves. Grub Street discovered the name on a liquor license, and now Werner has confirmed its true, via a post out the Outfit Generic site.

Over the weekend: The second Sauce has officially opened (56 Belden at Pine). Eater SF notes they marked the occasion by handing out festive beer coozies. Nice.

Speaking of drinks, Eater SF confirms Raven, the new SOMA bar, is open (1151 Folsom at Rausch). Expect happy hour bites from Triptych and Rocco's, dancing, and someone trying to get your number at the end of the night.

Also, you can now grab a steak (and a lap dance) at the new Penthouse Club & Steakhouse (412 Broadway at Montgomery). Our sister blog, the Exhibitionist, has a recap of Thursday's grand opening party.

Construction continues at Farina's pending pizzeria. Eater SF discovers, via Urban Life Signs, they're using familiar looking tiles (à la the ones you find in the BART station -- white, honey-comb design). The opening day, and name, are still unknown.

Food truck news: Hayeswire reports the neighborhood's Off the Grid is expanding to three nights. By the end of April the trucks will be appearing on Octavia at Linden Wednesday-Friday.

And just a reminder that Mission Bowling Club opens tonight (3176 17th St. at South Van Ness). Grab your clown shoes!

  • 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.'"
