A weekly listing of new dining spots around town. To recommend a spot, e-mail fresheats.

1601 Bar & Kitchen: After many delays, San Francisco's first Sri Lankan restaurant is now open in SOMA. Expect a cuisine with elements of Thai and Indian cooking – a must-order is an egg hopper, a soft-cooked egg in a rice paper crepe served with assorted chutneys. 1601 Howard, 552-1601. 1601sf.com.

Coqueta: Michael Chiarello, of Food Network and Napa fame, has opened a Spanish-themed restaurant on the Embarcadero with sweeping Bay views. Tapas make up most of the menu, and there's an interesting, sherry-rich cocktail list (including frozen sangria!). Pier 5, 704-8866. coquetasf.com.

Moxy: This spare new Berkeley beer garden has a fire pit, dart board, 14 beers on tap, and a pub grub menu that includes hearty burgers and truffle fries topped with parmesan and parsley. 3136 Sacramento St., Berkeley, 510-547-6699. moxybeergarden.com.

Seaglass Restaurant/The Seismic Joint: The brand new Exploratorium encompasses two restaurants, both accessible from the Embarcadero. Seaglass is the more upscale, with a pretty, glass-tiled bar and a seafood-heavy menu that also has tacos, rotisserie, and comfort food. The Seismic Joint is a casual café for a pick-me-up between exhibits. Pier 15, 528-4893.

Wild Hare: Alice in Wonderland is the theme at this new Pacific Heights bar/gastroclub from the folks behind Bullitt, Tonic, and Mayhem. The new menu's claim to fame? A burger with grilled cheese sandwiches instead of buns. 2801 California, 539-3200.

  • 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.'"
