Around Town:

Last week saw the much-anticipated opening of a second location of Pizzeria Delfina (2406 California at Fillmore), this one in Pacific Heights. Along with it comes twice the seating, twice the oven space, an expanded menu, and a whole lot more delectable Italian sweets. "We'll be offering house spun gelati, five or six flavors a day," chef de cuisine Anthony Strong says. "And zeppole, which is like a funnelcake on steroids. We take our pizza dough, fry it, and pummel it with powered sugar and mascarpone pastry cream. We're really focused on doing the sweets as street food, like they're done in Italy. We also have a new Faema E61 espresso machine; it's a reconditioned 1964 model, a really beautiful machine." Other new additions include meatballs and baked pasta as well as classic Tuscan favorite pollo al mattone, also known as chicken under a brick. "It comes off the grill looking like roadkill, but it tastes amazing," Strong says. "It's supercool." For more info, call 440-1189.

  • 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.'"
