Culture, The Exhibitionist Melancholy Cast in Steel: Cate Blanchett in <i>Carol</i>

Melancholy Cast in Steel: Cate Blanchett in Carol

The opening shot of Todd Haynes’ Carol rises up on an ornately patterned fence. Each exquisitely composed scene that follows includes things that divide us: walls, doors, panes of glass. There’s always something visually in the way to separate Therese…

Proper Food Is Pricey Food for Extremely Busy People

The corner of Sutter and Montgomery is one of the most Manhattan-like intersections in San Francisco. Not just because the buildings are tall, or some of the men scurrying between them actually wear ties. It’s because there’s a diagonally…

Caffeinate With a DJ at Equator Coffee (Through Tomorrow)

As further evidence that Mid-Market is blowing up, San Rafael-based roastery Equator Coffee has set up shop just off Sixth Street, its first SF location. And for at least one more morning, they’ll be coaxing commuters off the sidewalk…

An Oysterrific Follow-Up to ICHI Sushi + NI Bar Is Coming!

As Valencia Street seems to stall out at the bar-and-restaurant saturation point, it’s been ceding buzz territory to Mission. The latest extremely good news about the one-time laggard is ICHI Kakiya, a graphically pleasing oyster spot that’s going to…

Mandu, in the Castro, is a Place to Party

For all its recent leaps and bounds away from culinary mediocrity, the Castro is still primarily a place people come to get inebriated. Mandu, website-less the Asian street food restaurant that has gone in where Barracuda Sushi used to…

Post-Soviet: Breakfast Pop-Up Makes a Communist Peasant's Breakfast Look Yummy

Not that many people equate the former Soviet Union with freshness and abundance, but that might soon change once people get used to Post Soviet, a pop-up at farm:table that’s now happening most Monday mornings and early afternoons. (“Post”…

Buffalo Club, an Upscale Sports Bar with Room to Party, Now Open in the Mission

The bison head covered in glass hexagon tiles that guards the bar tells you a lot about Buffalo Club. It’s a mash-up of country tavern taxidermy and a gaudy discotheque’s icon, and it says that this might place might…

Burma Bear's BBQ Feels So Right the Second You Eat It

The tagline for Burma Bear — “Burmese and BBQ, together at last…” — makes it sound like it fills an obvious niche the way Reese’s Pieces did for chocolate and peanut butter. Having eaten there, I’m now inclined to…

Emanuel’s Coffee Might Be the Best Possible Successor to Cuco’s in the Lower Haight

When the family-owned Cuco’s Burritos closed after interminable squabbles with the landlord, I assumed its replacement would be something hideously slick and corporate. What a relief to be proven dead wrong, smug, know-it-all cynic that I am. I’m still…

Mourad: Perusing the Cocktail List at the New Restaurant in the PacBell Building

I had a feeling Mourad would be impressive, but I wasn’t quite prepared for the breadth of it, the glassed-in wine room, or the fact that some male patrons were actually wearing neckties. The new Moroccan-inflected endeavor by the…

Bond Bar, a Cocktail Lounge, Opens in What Used to Be Esta Noche

I only hung-out there maybe once or twice a year, so it’s hard to take the loss of Esta Noche personally. But the loss of San Francisco’s only Latino gay bar, with its ridiculous drag, cameo on HBO’s Looking,…

Tasting-Menu-Only Californios Turns Authenticity on Its Head

At first glance, everything about Californios suggests its intention is to clone Saison and unleash it upon a pocket of the Mission where so far, gentrification’s high tide line has been a putt-putt golf course in a former funeral…

Press 12: Humphry Slocombe's Lowbrow Genius, in the Form of Baked Goods

  Humphry Slocombe’s Jake Godby and {cocoa}’s Jewel Zimmer have a new bakery endeavor called Press 12, and it can be found in the already crowded parklet outside Four Barrel on Saturdays from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., until the duo procures…

Get That Wiener in Some Buns, at Dapper Dog in the Castro

“Because wieners are happiest between two buns” says the sandwich board outside of Dapper Dog, the latest fast-casual spot to open up in the Castro. It’s taken up the former home of The Bead Store, proof that the neighborhood…

Wreck Your New Year's Resolution With a High Cocoa Percentage at Giddy Candy in the Castro

Say what you will about all the new condo buildings on Market, but they’re giving us some fun new ground-level retail action. The otherwise nondescript edifice at Market, Noe and 16th Street is now home to Giddy Candy, and it’s…

Salad Buzz: Mazarine Coffee Has a Salad with Coffee-Roasted Beets and Espresso Vinaigrette

Mazarine Coffee on Market takes its cappuccino seriously. So seriously, in fact, that when they ordered six-ounce cappuccino cups from Heath Ceramics, they immediately determined that they actually held eight ounces of liquid and, certain that no true coffee…

Bom Dia Market is Just What a Quiet Corner of Noe Valley Needed

The first thing you notice once you walk into Bom Dia Market is that it’s modeled after that gold standard of neighborhood markets: Bi-Rite. It’s a little more low-key, though; you can move about freely without anyone bumping into you,…

Adorably Named La Snackeria in Oakland Has Seriously Good Quesadillas

La Snackeria is a crowd-funded project in Old Oakland by a self-described “Third Generation Tamale Girl,” and, in short, it is a big win. Here, the masa is stone-ground and GMO-free, with a choice of jerk pork and plantain…

SOMA Eats: Roasted Lamb and 200 Microbrews

One-stop-shopping appears to be falling out of favor in the Bay Area; and doing as they do in Europe, people are moving towards visiting farmers markets, wine shops and specialty markets before suffering the convenience of City Target (or…
