Bruno's Chefs Out, Nopa Bar Shuffles, Sons and Daughters Arrives

Posted By on Tue, Jun 22, 2010 at 8:15 AM


Day 2 of SFoodie's new morning roundup of the past 24 hours of rumor, innuendo,

and straight-up facts about San Francisco restaurant openings and

closings. We keep our heads stuck in the buzz chamber so you don't have


First up, Paolo L. at Inside Scoop reports that Bruno's, the Mission bar and club, is cutting out the food. That leaves the talented Ryan Ostler and Katharine Zacher out of a restaurant. According to their Twitter feed, the pair are going to do some stages (short-term, largely free gigs) around town and then go back to working for other chefs. A collective howl of disappointment (okay, one loud "Noooo!" from a biscuit fan) just went up in the SFoodie offices.

Thrillist reported on the opening of Sons and Daughters

(708 Bush, 391-8311,, Teague Moriarty and Matt McNamara's new restaurant in the old Cafe Mozart spot near Union Square. The pitch: Tiny, extremely

creative-looking menu (black cod with hamhock-dashi broth; squab with something called "textures of honey").

Jay B. at Grub Street and Jon B. at Inside Scoop have put up one-two posts about bar manager Neyah White's decision to leave Nopa.

SFoodie went to Nopa for a farewell White Manhattan this weekend, but

turns out it was too soon to start mourning; the restaurant's replacing White

with two Nopa vets, Yanni Kehagiaras and Kent Howard, who are also overseeing the new bar at Nopalito.

And just because we're not going to be the ones to break the gossip chain...

  • 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.'"
