SF Covers brings word that the decadent, oft-embattled French duck liver foie gras has slipped back onto the menu at Jardiniere after chef Traci Des Jardins vowed to stop using it in 2003. Many Bay Area chefs began to rethink use of the controversial delicacy after a series of attacks on Aqua chef Laurent Manrique, blamed on radical animal rights activists who say force-feeding ducks to produce foie gras is cruel. Cruel or not, foie gras is a key ingredient in French cuisine, and remains a high demand luxury item among fine diners.

  • 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.'"
