Sunday 'Farm To Table' Supper At Luce In SoMa

They're cranking up the seasonal juices at SoMa Ital-ifornia spot Luce Restaurant (888 Howard at 5th St. in the InterContinental Hotel) with "Farm to Table" tasting menus now happening every Sunday Supper (so quaint and non-corporate hotel sounding). Here's how it works: Chef Dominique Crenn -- who has soaked up plenty of accolades since Luce opened less than six months ago -- will go get inspired at the farmers markets on Saturday, and assemble her menu based on what's looking good. And the price is right at four courses for $45 per person, $65 with wine pairing. A recent sample menu included some tasty-sounding morsels: Coke Farms Baby Fava Beans, Sweet Corn, and White Nectarine Salad; Marin Sun Farms Flat Iron Steak and Capay Farms Asparagus; Bellwether Farms Fromage Blanc Cheesecake with Marshall Farms Honey and Blue Moon Organic Strawberries. Despite enough brand names to choke a horse, this is drool-worthy. Call 616-6566 for reservations.

  • 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.'"
