Your weekly guide to SF's best pop-ups and temporary restaurants.

Hella Vegan Eats

When: Friday and Saturday

Where: Dolores Park

Cost: $5-$10

The Rundown: In the likely case that the sun will still be shining in mid-November and you're probably day drinking at Dolores Park, Hella Vegan Eats will be curbside so you don't have to stumble elsewhere. Mack on their vegan mac 'n' cheese, or their Lusty Lover Tacos with butternut squash, a persimmon BBQ sauce, and spicy chipotle corn flakes served over a corn tortilla. The croissants they make for their BLTA envelop smoky maple gluten bacon, organic greens, avocado, and tomato.

Pan Grill Sandwich Shop

When: Wed-Sun 11a.m. - 3p.m.

Where: Butterfly

Cost: $7-$10

The Rundown: A new lunchtime pop up by chef/owner Rob Lam of Butterfly brings milk bun sandwiches to the Embarcadero. The lunch window operates on the southern end of the restaurant. All sandwiches are $7, and include pork katsu with yuzu slaw, kimchi pulled pork with mizuna, and hanger steak with a scallion-chimichurri sauce.

Waiheke Island Yacht Club

When: Everyday until Dec. 31

Where: Pier 29

Cost: $40-$145

The Rundown: Now that the city has moved into post-America's Cup mode, this chic pop-up has found anchor at Pier 29 until the end of the year. Inspired by the dreamy Waiheke Island off the coast of New Zealand, kiwi Tony Stewart has brought the elegant fare to the Embarcadero. Sip a New Zealand beer or wine while savoring the rich, silky venison tartare accompanied by oysters, radishes, and grated horseradish. Brunch, lunch, and tasting menus are also available.

  • 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.'"
