Like flatmates ejected in some complex landlord drama, Pinkie's Bakery and Bento 415 stuck together last month, when they left the Potrero Flats production kitchen and retail counter they shared. Now they're in SOMA, in the former Ideal Café on Folsom. As Bento's Chris Beerman readies his adjoining full-serve restaurant, Pinkie's Cheryl Burr has fired up the stand mixers, collaborating with her former Bento roomies to sell sandwiches from the pastry case. The egg-salad specimen is straightforward and chunky, crunchy with diced celery, heaped onto a caraway-spiked house-baked rye kaiser. Not bad, though its raison d'etre might just be as prelude to a plush Pinkie's dessert ― the chocolate-strawberry bread pudding, say. Welcome to the neighborhood, guys.

Pinkie's Bakery 1196 Folsom (at Eighth St.), 355-1269. Takeout only.

  • 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.'"
