After a couple of false alarms, looks like Upper Fillmore's Tacobar will finally manage to open its doors for lunch tomorrow. A sign posted in the window of the former La Salsa franchise at California and Fillmore cited equipment issues and staff training.

Inside, chef/owner Jack Schwartz (we last wrote about him in the context of La Calaca Loca in Oakland's Temescal 'hood) was barking orders in Spanish at the assembled staff. Schwartz says that, for Tacobar's first week anyway, it'll be a lunch-only operation. The menu skews upscale taqueria: tacos (duh), "burros" (burritos minus the diminutive ending), and quesadillas. Despite a name that sounds more Manhattan than Mexico City, Schwartz grew up in the Mexican capital. Ergo, Tacobar's interesting touches, like his esquites, corn cooked with epazote, served with crema and cotija cheese. We'll see if the staff is ready, at long last, to pull it off.

Opening for lunch tomorrow:

Tacobar 2401 California (at Fillmore), 674-7745 or 674-7769

  • 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.'"
