Posted By on Wed, Nov 12, 2008 at 3:43 PM

In this exclusive interview, Executive Chef Jonnatan Leiva of Jack Falstaff discusses his fantastic year, highlights of which include being named a "Rising Star Chef" by the Chronicle and appearing on Food Network's Challenge: The Next Great Chef. He also talks about his recent travels in Italy and extols the virtues of bison, focal point of his "Beer and Bison" dinner on Tuesday, November 18. The three-course meal (which costs $85, excluding tax and gratuity) will be a collaboration between Leiva, Nopa's Laurence Jossel, and Ravi Kapur of Boulevard and includes bison carpaccio and fried oysters, butternut squash ravioli and beer-braised bison, and slow-roasted bison short ribs with smoked fingerlings and kale. Leiva thinks bison might just be the next big meat. —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.'"
