When the S.F. outpost of Tom Colicchio's 'Wichcraft (868 Mission at Fourth St.) appeared a few years ago, it seemed to generate a pompous air around itself. The Top Chef host splashed out with a huge space on the ground floor of the then-new Westfield Centre, as if Colicchio didn't quite get our city's downscale aspirations. And while we had been impressed with our explorations of one of the original New York locations of 'Wichcraft, we never quite felt compelled to rush down to its S.F. sibling to compare.

What a bad move that was, since we could have been spending so many mornings with Colicchio, ravishing the delicious, runny mess of his fried eggs sandwich ($6.95), savoring its little gifts of bacon, Gorgonzola, and frisée on ciabatta. The sandwich is ostensibly for breakfast, but -- quite rightly -- served all day. We've got a lot of lost time to make up for here.

  • 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.'"
