Ferry Plaza's Delica rf-1 is a delicatessen imagined with a Japanese twist, the first such American venture by Kozo Iwata's massive Rock Field Company. Amidst the beautiful sushi rolls, salads and fried items is a lively remix of the Yankee classic of meat and potatoes: Roast beef sushi and wasabi potato salad.

Made from organic Meyer beef and lashings of wasabi and prepared nigiri style over rice rather than in a maki roll, the roast beef sushi is a fiery and delicious sensation. The wasabi potato salad brings much less of a buzz to the nose but still makes a wonderful counterpoint to crisp Romaine, edamame and snap peas. The roast beef sushi is available for $2 each and the wasabi potato salad is $8 per pound, or a complete meal of the two with rice is $7.50. The latter offers more food than it looks. —Tamara Palmer

  • 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.'"
