PROMOTION: This Week Thrillist Recommends Epic Roasthouse 

Wednesday, Feb 20 2008

This article is brought to you by, our homies.

If you could hire a psychic manservant, your every need would be wordlessly met - like hugs when you're sad, or frosty Beast Ice when you're awake. For that same consideration from a restaurant, hit EPIC Roasthouse.

Thrillist - Epic Roasthouse
From the talent behind Campton Place, Jardiniere, and Boulevard, EPIC's an industrial-chic meat temple with million dollar views of the Bay Bridge and Treasure Island (buy now to get your free gifts of a South Bay view, and the extendo handle). The menu's loaded with meat you crave (Kobe beef, Carlton Ranch pork, tableside prime rib service), plus a sides section intuitively entitled "Stuff You Want In a Steakhouse" -- which includes sautéed spinach w/ garlic confit, but no fur hammock. Because EPIC knows you talk about being busy, they offer a 50-minutes in-and-out Multitasker's Luncheon (2-course feast + cookies); there's also a Missed Breakfast weekend brunch -- because they also know you can't leave the house before watching The McLaughlin Report/Spider Riders.

Further evidence of EPIC's you-mniscience: their trio of New Orleans-influenced "hangover drinks", and a small-batch bourbon program that includes their own barrel of Rip Van Winkle -- named for a man whose own psychic manservant got to go 20 years without a Beast run.

  • 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.'"
