The latest gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the San Francisco food scene.

The Boulettes Larder team is pretty busy. Beyond the plans to expand their Ferry Building shop to include the Bouli Bar in the space next door, Inside Scoop also shares they're working on a restaurant space on Polk: Et Al. The tiny, wine-focused restaurant is planning to serve all three meals of the day, and the doors should be open in a couple weeks.

Eater SF shares Sift Cupcake and Dessert Bar (that we first mentioned in June) is readying to start serving sugary treats next week. The Fillmore sweet shop will open their doors Aug. 22.

The long awaited Napoletana-style pizzeria Farina Pizza is almost open. Grub Street discovers they had a private dinner late last week and confirms that a rep for the pizzeria said the grand opening is slated for Aug. 20.

Will it still reign as the Marina hangout in the Mission? Time will tell. But Grub Street shares Lolinda, the Medjool replacement, is now open. The menu includes skewers and ceviche, alongside an extensive bar program.

Also, Inside Scoop reminds those who want to party, that Qi Ultra Lounge is now open in the former Annie's Social Club space. Expect an "aqua-exotic" atmosphere, and cocktail concoctions with names like "the Campfire Snack."

  • 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.'"
