They're Taking Reservations at SPQR -- for Mother's Day Only!

Posted By on Tue, May 5, 2009 at 4:19 PM

If you've been longing to try the cooking of chef Nate Appleman (maybe even more so now that he's been anointed 2009's Rising Star Chef by the recent James Beard Awards), but have been reluctant because of SPQR's no reservations policy, why not try them for brunch on Mother's Day? (Mothers welcome, but not necessary.)

Exceptionally, SPQR is taking reservations for that day. The special brunch menu includes bitter chocolate and orange scones; house-made biscuit sandwiches with prosciutto cotto, sharp cheddar, and a fried egg; polenta griddle cakes with ricotta, poached pears, and almonds; pork sausage and sweet potato frico with pecorino, chile hollandaise, and two fried eggs; house-made  granola with St. Benoit organic yogurt and Dirty Girl strawberries; "Tuesday" fried chicken with pancetta waffles; and a lamb burger with a fried egg and pickled vegetables.

We want one of everything. 

SPQR, 1911 Fillmore (at Pine), 771-7779. Or make reservations by email:

  • 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.'"
