Eater PDX was among those pouncing on the news last month that Anchor & Hope chef Sarah Schafer was moving north to oversee Irving St. Kitchen, the Doug Washington/Steve and Mitchell Rosenthal eatery named for the Cambridge, Mass., street where Julia Child lived, due to open in Portland's Pearl District in early May. Last Monday, Peter Janiak ― Schafer's replacement as Anchor & Hope's chef de cuisine ― quietly started work. Janiak spent the last three years at Presidio Social Club (he worked his way up to Exec chef there), and before that worked the rail at Boulevard. Expect things to stay pretty much the same at the SOMA fish house, which turns two next week (Shafer's two sous are still in place). Janiak's first task: Beefing up interest in Anchor's happy hour beyond the $1 oyster. "We'll be adding some new things, but it's all still in the developmental stage," Janiak said.

  • 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.'"
